Annual trip out east, 2013

The trip started with visiting Mark’s brother, and these two n’er-do-wells.

swap meet

We moved on to Kutztown, PA, to the radio swap meet put on by the Delaware Valley Historic Radio Club.

One of the amazing things you can see at this meet is Buford Chidester’s work reproducing designs on cone speakers.  He is an amazing artist with a steady hand!

A few radio cabinets gave their lives.

This meet is a lot of fun, a lot of friends, and a lot of radios.

clean upand this, we had a great party.  I didn’t take many pictures, I was too busy having fun.

party peopleand people partied.  In fact, it got so wild the cops had to come break things up.  Ya like that, the cops had to come!  OK, maybe not the melee that implies, but the cops did come.  The band was still playing, loudly, at 11:30, which is quite late for a sleepy town like Plymouth, and two of Plymouth’s finest sauntered up the alley to let the band know it was time to stop.

Everyone had fun, especially all the party crashers that showed up.  I live in a great neighborhood.  I woke up this morning to find most the stuff cleaned up, I suspect Tony.  Thanks, Tony!

Mona LainieWe ran into Elaine, looking very formal.

not a girl bandWe saw one angry band (perhaps because they were forced to wear women’s clothing),

real girl bandand one happy band (who seemed to like wearing women’s clothing, maybe ‘cuz they’re women.).
