Don't touch that dial

Hello all.  I've been busy making my final preparations for Christmas, but wanted to get one more post in there beforehand.

This lovely 1950 Crosley Coloradio 10-135 (D-25 BE) in "Delux White" with chrome trim arrived on my doorstep the other day.  Well, landed is likely closer to what happened.  When I picked it up, I could hear the sad tinkle of broken vacuum tubes.  UPS strikes again.

So this guy is going to need a spot of TLC.  Does anyone have experience in this arena?  I've been lucky thus far and all of my vintage electronic finds have been fully operational.  Regardless, it's a handsome specimen and should come back to life with a new set of tubes.  Until that time it'll grace my nightstand as a decoration.

  1. Broken vacuum tubes are the pits, but it looks wonderful in frosty white and silver!
