School project needs some help finding old radios

If you come across any old radios (portable or semi portable) that work or don’t work / Tubes or old transistors and you are never going to use them, but hate the idea of throwing it out. Send it my way. I found a great project to convert them into amplifiers for electrical instruments which will go hand in hand with our homemade instrument project. It looks as though I will be presenting this STEM project and the students work this summer at Northeastern University.

Before you say “They can’t use that old thing”, remember that we can use the knobs and inner electronics. The older tube radios have an analog sound that is amazing but the old transistor radios are much more portable both are welcome. So, check the attic and then the cellar and let me know if you find anything or just drop them off at Gloucester High School. Please pass this email on to anyone you think might have some collecting dust. I thank you and my students thank you.
