We hear some of the participants in the quarterly New England Antique Radio Club Vintage Radio Show and Sale in Nashua, N.H. Producer Dianne Ballon captured the stories of how old radio equipment became the hobby and passion for a group of collectors. We learn about the types and designs of radio receivers: "tombstones" and "cathedrals" from the 1920s to the TV era.
