Collector's Guide to Antique
Radios, CD-ROM Edition, by Marty and Sue Bunis and George Kaczowka: The
Grigsby-Grunow Company was formed in 1928. The company's radio sales were
extraordinary due to the superiority of their speakers over that of others on
the market. However, the Depression soon caught up with Grigsby-Grunow, and by
1933 the company was bankrupt. The business was re-formed into the Majestic
Radio & Television Corporation which made the Majestic line and General
Household Utilities which made the Grunow line until 1937.
