Thanks Chris!   I remember those radios, I sold them at the Gamble store when I was a teenager.  When I get caught up with projects I may take you up on building an antenna.   The Philco 41-280 I have has a large built in loop antenna.  Some days are better than others but it still does not perform like I think it should.  I think part of the problem is living in the pucker brush, there are no close AM stations. Night time is better for reception than daytime.

I have tried later in the evening.  I'm usually in bed by 10, 11 the latest so not real late.  The station that I do get music on is gone, and I can get receive more stations at night, but still none with music.  Maybe I need a outside antenna of some kind?

I'm not sure why, but I have never been a big fan of Guy.  Louis and Keely were good together musically, but I guess they did not get along married.  After they split I think he kind of faded away and she kept recording.  I see plenty of albums with her name on them but not so much him.

All the AM stations around me except one are talk or sports.  The one that still plays music has a variety.  The genre goes from big band/Great American song book to about mid 60's.

Mathew actually joined the forum December 1, 2015.  It would be nice if he just joined and we could learn how he did it.  But, I think having someone new join will never happen as long as the forum is in the state it is in now.

We have that around here too.  I use it in all mowing equipment and the Metropolitan.

I'm not the expert, but that looks like a "Little Imperial".  You do not see them for sale very often.

Hey everyone, here is a new forum to check out:

I think this might be the solution to our frustrations.  I joined, and I'm hoping you all will too.

Occasionally, I see other members listed when I'm in the forum and there are lots of lookers but no one can join.  Very sad!  And you are correct Chris, I see no way to attach any photos.   

I'm pretty boring, and try to spend most of my time outside in the Michigan summers.  So, I'm not on the computer much except to check emails and check this forum.  One of these days, when it's raining and I can't be outside, I will post my Imperial restoration.  It's still on going, but getting there.  I just wish I could post photos to go with it.

Music, always seems to live on long after everything else is gone by the wayside.  Some pieces of music bring tears to my eyes, while others are ok but just ok, and still others I really do not want to hear ever again.   For each of us it is different, and I guess that is what makes the world go around.

The census data may say your are old, but you are not old Chris.  To me, people are only as old as they want to be.  If you think young, stay active both in mind an physically, you will stay young.  There are some days I feel a 100, but I just keep moving and try not to let those days slow me down. 

I must have lived under a rock most of my life Walyfd.  But, I guess not totally under a rock because I do know who Max Steiner is.  There is an album of Bette David movie themes?

You are lucky, I need to always check dates and times to see what was a "NEW" post.

He is a composer I have never heard of, but definitely knew what he was doing.  I noticed about half the musicians were young, which is good in my opinion.  Youth in anything is always a good thing.

Interesting, I get the date and time but no "orange box".

My communication on the forum never shows to be "NEW".  It's there, just not showing something "NEW".
