It brought me virtually almost all over the world. I was one of the very first Europeans who came to the US to buy jukeboxes. I brought some of my friends too and everybody who knows about jukeboxes knows what happened next. Since that time they went and still go by containers full to Europe. Although Jukeboxes always remained only a hobby for me, several of my old friends changed their hobby into a substantial business by importing Jukeboxes and most other Americana from the US.
My hobby brought me in fact to the US and in the late eighties I was able to move there. To my own surprise soon after settling down I changed my interest to antique radios again. I scaled my jukebox collection down from ten to three. But I kept all wallboxes and speakers! Several wireless remotes are still around in perfect working order. Radios aren't that heavy and that on itself is probably a good reason for my change in collecting.
The same feeling repeats itself now with the antique radios. Bringing them back to life remains one of the nicest things I can imagine doing in my spare time. Only when I'm able to make them look like new again they deserve a permanent place in my collection. So I think I do all this just for fun. Not to forget the other fun part, searching for them!
