I'll See you there. It's the best time of the year. Someone called it a cross between a swap meet, camping trip and a frat party.
Yes, Al, it's a HAPPENING ! Last year, we broke new ground with a genuine hifi exhibition/show. The earlybirds get the worms, so all you collectors who will be flying in, get there early ! Bring some hifi gear to trade or sell or entertain with...

Haw! That's rich! (Kutztown: Merely another excuse for drinking beer).
In all honesty, I have been to 13 of the 14 Kutztown Radio Meets, and I'll most certainly attend the 15th. If you've never made the venture, it's truly become an eye and ear opening experience of national merit. It's particularly satisfying to see how it's evolved from just old radios to include some serious (and seriously dedicated) hifi folk and their gear as well.
Definately worth the trip from just about anywhere.
See you on the set!
This is as close as you can get today I think, and for cheap compared to the VTV shows for sure. Be sure to order electric and bring tarps for the evening.
Man, those were the days. Everything was available everywhere.
Everyone lucked out at the hamfests and antique radio shows, back then. KT66s and EL34s were not $100. each, for real UK items. 2A3s wre $25 in the '80s and '90s !
Trading was rampant at those shows, value for value. We had listening sessions, there. The action was quick. The earlybirds got the worms.
But, that was then. This is now. Wherever anyone on this website lives, it will be worth your while to come to Kutztown, PA May 11-12, for the DVHRC Antique Radio Show at the Renningers Pavillion #2.
More and more hifi shows up. Tubes, records, jukes, speakers, turntables, amps, even phono cartridges and needles. Last year's fall event had WE gear, McIntosh, Knight, Eico, Dynaco, Fisher, ElectroVoice Circlotron amps, and so much more...Did I forget to mention the fantastic Friday night dinner and hifi listening get together ?
Don't miss this HAPPENING !!!
