I appreciate the replies and the sentiments, guys, but I just couldn't see myself with an actual vintage radio. Maybe someday in the future when I have a job that pays money, and things are more settled. But not at the moment. If I can get a reproduction in decent condition for a good price, I'd rather go with that. I apologise to the purists if I offended anyone. Judging by some of the replies, I get the impression I've sullied consecrated ground by appearing here and mentioning a reproduction. The price of a vintage radio, especially around here...hell...the price of a vintage ANYTHING around here...is vastly...VAAAAAASTLY inflated, from what you would find in the 'States. Given that I may not use the radio *particularly* often, I want something that works and that has the style. I don't want to spend a great deal of money on something which I will only use occasionally. If everything were perfect, I'd love an actual vintage one, I'm sure. But I'd never be able to afford one in my current situation.
