"Thanks for the restoration work on the ADMIRAL radio electronics. As a 12 year old, I fell in love with rock n roll listening to WABC on this very model, which of course was tossed by my mom many years ago. Amazing but when it warms up it even sports the same smell. Something this radio person had to have, and in such great condition, it looks great in the breakfast nook where it will get plenty of use (albeit listening to the local news stations now) Thanks once more.- johnxxxxx"
