NEWS -- August 22, 2016:

Clearance Sale!

USB-1 sale, while they last!

Replaced with the FMR-2 family of products, the version 1's are gone -- except for the USB-1 USB/MP3 Adapter.  A handful are still in stock, and we are offering them at clearance price.  Normally $100, these are available for $75.  This can be added to any existing FMR-1 conversion, and is also compatible with the FMR-2.

If interested, the time to act is right now.  Please let us know right away, and we'll reserve one for you.  While supplies last.  When they're gone, the sale is over!


Turnaround for conversions:  For the most part it's two weeks or less, but there are exceptions.  Certain models from Lincolns/Cadillacs, or prewar, or European types, you should allow more time.  Also it's very important that you follow the instructions on our Shipping Page.  If packing instructions are ignored you can expect damage, and if documentation is incomplete or missing entirely, the set will be red-flagged while we proceed with the others.  Those who follow instructions get priority treatment.

ONLINE SHOPPING -- currently if you try, you'll get a lot of 404 errors.  If you're interested in these products, you may call during the day (Eastern time) at 941-371-8924.  You can also e-mail anytime.

Atwater Kent Radio  Personal Antique Radio Collection  Gary Tayman has collected many vintage home radios over the years.  While some are still future projects, many are totally rebuilt and are used daily!  One cannot deny that the carved-wood art-deco styling, coupled with the warm glow of the tubes, provides a certain charm that simply cannot be duplicated by any of their modern counterparts.
