When i go back this coming weekend i will take a pic of them if they are still there. Also when i get the tv from consoleguy i will make a youtube video of it
We should get together. I always have some good stuff needing new homes, and in much better shape than anything you'll ever find at the Walden flea....

consoleguy67 and me have it all worked out i'm just waiting for the money order to get to him. Here are the pics i promised all of you, the zenith radio is gone but the tv shells are still there and a record player/combo. what year do you think the tv's are from it would be cool to know i'm guessing the early 1950's? i know the bottom one is a rcavictor i don't remember what the top one was, too bad they were gutted the cabinet looks to be in very good shape

Well well well, they are from the early-mid 50's as you said... Back when you were still living in the middle of your past life, enjoying the days of early television, and your current mom and pop were just toddlers, but then again, they may have not even been born yet..

I'm glad that the set is doing well! You're right; we won't ever see that kind of quality again, especially in American electronics. I currently have three console sets at home that were made in the 1960's: a 1964 Magnavox black and white stereo theatre with its original 24" picture tube, a 1964 Magnavox roundie color stereo theatre, and a 1967 Zenith color roundie console. All three give great pictures. Let's see how these flat screen sets do in 48 years.
