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.
