         The life and times of Mark and Paula Persons

Mark and Paula headed to The Bakken Museum near Lake Calhoun to try out the latest gadgets involving electricity.

They used brain waves to push a ball across a table on a Mindball game. 

Darn, Paula won!  She is smart.

Then it was off to Radio Daze 2012, sponsored by the Northland Antique Radio Club.  This annual show draws hundreds of collectors who buy, sell, and swap vintage radios.  Most of them have white hair...or no hair!
The sign says it all.

It doesn't get any better than this.

Tables were filled with old radios from the early 1900's to this red one with the Hopalong Cassidy name from the 1950's.
An auction was held. 

Radios change hands each year sometimes to return the next year for the same treatment. 

A happy high-bidding couple with a beautiful radio.
Hmmm....more evidence of radio activity.  Stay tuned.

Quote of the day: People really like antique radios.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
