For my 68th birthday my son got me a refurbished and modified Silvertone 6051 (made in 1946). This is one of the most thoughtful gifts I received in a long time! Not just because I love these old radios and radio theater, but this Silvertone was built (68 years ago) the year I was born !
The best part about this gift is that I can now play all my favorite radio shows from http://www.otr.net on the radio. The programs are played wirelessly from my computer to the radio through what is called the "Bluetooth connection". I was told I can plug my old cassette deck into it and listen to all the tapes I've collected through the years, but as of now I am happy with the almost limitless collection of radio programs online.
The company that produced this refurbished Silvertone is 3rian.com. Looking at the prices I would have never got one for myself. But I tell you, there's nothing quite like sitting back in my easy chair and listening to my favorite programs through this wonderful gift!
Previously I would sit at my computer desk and listen. How do you listen to your OTR these days? Also, where do you get your programs from?
