The Radio

Welcome back to the ART section good people! It has been a long time. Today we’ve got something that takes the bar a little higher as we always do. This is the first time we have attempted this fusion of New Cool and Old School.  Let me see if I can talk you around this beautiful Frankenstein. This is a high powered computer designed to be smaller than the average desktop, nestled into a BEAUTIFUL 1936 Fairbanks-Morse 72TS Radio. Back in the day this radio could do shortwave, police, broadcast, foreign, amateur, and aircraft. Even though it’s been in my family since it was brand new, 78 years later when I got a hold of it, it looked as though it would blow up if I plugged it in. One day I was having a discussion with an awesome guy, and amazing friend whom I dubbed and shall hence forth be known as “Capt. Gingerbeard”, about how I wish I could do all my graphic design dabbling on the couch in the living room, otherwise known as… the dream. I didn’t want to do the conventional desktop sitting next to my big screen and I didn’t want a laptop.  I thought of putting it into an old radio and the captain said he knew exactly what to do to build a computer inside powerful enough to handle my graphic needs without damageing the radio. AND THE CAPT DID NOT DISAPPOINT! With his brains and ingenuity and the sweet job of vintage esthetics being left up to me, we created a sweet fusion of cool. Enjoy the movie and keep it vintage.
