I recently took some better photos of a console tube radio in my collection, thought I'd share some of them here. You can see them all and more in my Flickr gallery here This is the highest quality radio that I have. McMurdo Silver certainly put a lot of nice touches on their sets. Chrome is the nicest finishing touch here, not many radio companies did that. (Makes it tricky to get a good photo of it though.) I love the nice clean lines, not quite Art Deco, more like Art Moderne? The radio uses 17 vacuum tubes in the receiver and 4 in the power amplifier, quite a high count compared to other mid to high-end radios of the era. The wooden cabinet below the receiver is named "The Clifton" and apparently it's a tricky cabinet to find. They were given away for free by the McMurdo Silver company to people that purchased the receiver. Not many survived. Neither did McMurdo Silver, the company went out of business the year this radio was made. Sadly, 'McMurdo Silver', the actual man who started this radio company, committed suicide in 1947. His life was ruined by its closure. With large dust shield box on Closeup on the receiver With large dust shield removed Top view, the smaller chrome cans house the vacuum tubes. Rear of the radio. Speaker to left, power / amp to right. The 18" Jensen "Super Giant" speaker that came the radio Clipped from Radio News magazine, Dec. 1937 - The cabinet featured on the radio in this ad is the same as mine, but the actual radio is from a year earlier. McMurdo Silver offered the Clifton cabinet on both year's models. *btw: I haven't plugged it in since I bought it in 2007, but am always very tempted. It's more complex than most radios so I want an expert to give it a tuneup before I turn it on. As you may already know from older threads here, you can blow more expensive components if you don't replace the capacitors first - and there's a lot of them under the chassis of this one. For now it just sits quiet, looking nice. Hope you enjoyed seeing these.
