My mom has a RCA VIT51W stereo console in good condition. She is wanting $300 for it. How would be the best way to find a buyer? Is $300 a fair price? If anybody is interested you can call her at 405-818-1548 Faye Graham. She bought new in 1967

Looking for someone to restore an antique radio for my husband. We live in Fayetteville, AR and want some place close enough to deliver it to since it is in a wood cabinet. Thanks for any help. I have bombed out searching the web.

Hi Michela,

Here is a recommendation for you. Mr. Cady is pretty much the go-to person for radio repair and restoration in our club. He’s very reasonable in his cost of repairs and quite reliable. You can visit his website at http://www.goldenageradiorestoration.com. You can email him at cadyraymond1@gmail.com. You can call him at 405-820-8014.

Please accept our apology for the delay in responding to your posting.

Hi Marge,

Thank you for your request to add the maker.pro link to our website. Unfortunately, that website does not hold related interest for our website viewers.

Hello Dorothy,

I hope it’s OK that post this question here. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction where I could possibly get some vacuum tubes tested and perhaps get an idea of the value of them here in the OKC area. I have some RCA 8417 still in their sleeve.
Thank you,

Steve

Hi Steve,

Wow am I behind in replying to postings. My apologies. If you still need tubes tested, contact Raymond Cady 405-820-8014 or cadyraymond1@gmail.com.

Best wishes,

Dorothy
