YouTube channel on Becker radio repair
« on: 21 May 2020, 10:12 PM »
Hey guys.  If any of you are interested I've been posting youtube videos of repairing a Becker Mexico TR from the 1960's.  It'll be a multi part adventure, but hopefully informative and/or entertaining for those of you who've been in isolation.  I do not do this for a living.  It's only a hobby.  This radio belongs to a friend in California, and I'm only doing it because I, too, am needing something to keep me from going crazy.   In time more videos will be posted relating to other European table top radios, some car stuff, and anything else I think is fun to document.   Here is a link to my channel:

Videos definitely have the Aaron touch to them.

Did you mail the faceplate yet?

Ugh.  No, it slid under some junk on the piano (you've seen that train wreck) and I forgot about it.  I'll get it out in the next few days with an original one to go by.  Thanks for the reminder. 

Thanks for the kind words to both of you!  :)

Hahaha, it looks like my place but cleaner. I have lost plenty of objects under a couple of mid-1800s sideboards filled with daguerreotypes beneath WWI propaganda posters. No pianos here though.
