In Memoriam

The antique radio community has lost two very influential men in recent weeks.
Rich Estes, that many know from the monthly radio auction in Medina passed away early this week. He was very involved in the radio community and we all have a radio that Rich Estes called the auction on in our collection.

Alan Douglass who died November 15, authored a 3 volume Radio Manufacturers of the 1920’s book and was very active with Antique Radio Forum, etc and another heavy hitter in antique radios.

Rest in Peace
