Sunday morning as I arrived at Shoreline Community College I discovered that The Puget Sound Antique Radio Association was having their annual SCC Swap Meet in the SouthWest parking lot. 


So-o-o-o, I stopped to investigate. There was everything electric from an original Edison Gramaphone (first means of recording sound), I didn't check to see if it was spring wound or electric but probably was the first electric model produced -- to military surplus WWII vintage electronics.


Beautiful Floor model cabinet radios that were popular before TV was invented, like I listened to as a small child, "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of man? The shadow knows!" or that Kemo Sabe, as Tonto called The Lone Ranger, meant Truly Trusted Friend. 


The club meets monthly at the Cedar Valley Grange hall in Lynnwood and welcomes new members.


There was no shortage of goods at the Swap Meet, which the club has been staging for 32 years.
