Q: How did you get started on Retro Radio Farm?

One day back in 2012, I happened to go to a local flea market. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, and I'm not a flea market or garage sale regular.

I noticed these two old radios for $15 each. I had not been interested in old radios before, and I was not a collector or a retro guy. These particular radios were from 1950s, bright and colorful, oozing with retro pride, but in sad, neglected shape.

As far as my professional background, I have an electrical engineering degree but never worked on radios. My understanding of these things was only basic at best. I knew analog audio sounded better than digital from my guitar days.

I read a few articles online, postings on forums, and figured out how to repair these things. It was a slow process at first, with a lot of trial and error.

I was looking to launch an online business of some kind to generate additional income. I had been selling random stuff on eBay for years.
