Dime Store Radios


Dime Store Radios

The last of the tube table radios, these "Dime Store Radios" appeared in the 1960s, when transistor radios were making themselves known. Mostly from Japan, these AA5's were midget-sized and cheap. The genre has its niche among antique radio collectors, so here is their special page. If you have one or more of these colorful cuties, please send photos to archives@radioattic.com!
