Fun, Interesting, Bizarre, and GROSS Things Found in Old Radios

I find strange and interesting things all the time inside old radios

These old radios have been stored in garages, basements, attics, and sheds for decades. 

I don't know why I feel the need to share these. It's just too random, unexpected, and weird to keep to myself.

Mouse nest?

Bird's nest?

Nest of old termites or ants or something. This ball of dirt was encrusted around a dogbone resistor. Once chiseled off, turn on. I amazed the radio started working!

The world's cruddiest old dried out cord. Pretty amazing this thing was not cut off and thrown out years ago. No, I did not try plugging it in.

Looks like remains of  termite, hornet, or some other insect nest. There was a caking of gritty dust all over the chassis.

I found these mice in an old Farnsworth. See the nest made out of an old green scour pad?

More to come...
