Restoring antique radios and collectibles has been a deep seated, passion of mine. In 1987, I bought my first tabletop radio at the local flea market. I was attracted to the Art Deco design and even more fascinated with the types of wood used, and the artistry of how the different woods and grains were integrated into the overall design.
I love how these eras show the true artistic workmanship and classic Art Deco designs at a time when the U.S. was trying to recover from a depression and the years of America being at war. Despite the hardship our country endured, the men and women who worked in the factories took extreme pride in the products they produced that were “built to last” and live on forever. I would love to be around long enough to see our country get back to this kind of commitment and pride. It was a time when Made in America, meant just that and it showed in all the items we manufactured.
Throughout the decades, my favorite pastime has enabled me to assemble a vast inventory of radio makes and styles. Each meticulously restored piece has been a labor of love, so much so, that I cannot part with them once they are finished. The purpose of this calendar is to share my enthusiasm with others to view and enjoy as they take a journey back in time. – Don Brady www.bradyola.com
