Ron’s Antique Radio Museum, Pennsylvania

 

I stopped at Ron’s Museum as I was driving from Virginia to Pittsburgh.

Ron had been in the business of repairing radios for years.  His small museum had many old radios and TV’s.  So, if you are into old time broadcast electronics this is the place to visit.  Ron gave me a personal tour and his wife added more to the stories.

For example, one was a Dallas, Texas radio that first broadcast the news of President Kennedy’s assassination.

There are over 200 other items are on display that Ron can tell you about individually.  Many were novelty radios and TV’s that took the form of rubber duckies, grandfather clocks and other objects.

After our tour, Ron took me to his personal garage and showed me the hundreds of items he was working on, but said he would probably never finish since he had terminal cancer.  Outside of the museum he had a vintage car for sale, old gas pumps and a phone booth.
