A testimonial from Joyce and Don Chriscoe to Tony Bartunek, The RadioDoctor, for the restoration of our 1959 Telefunken Concertino....March 2006
Our room was lit only by the glow from the fireplace. Champagne in hand, I pressed the SW1 button and my beautiful 1959 Telefunken Concertino came to life. It was the first time in forty years that I'd heard those deep rich sounds from our family heirloom. This magic moment was brought to us by Tony Bartunek, who spent months patiently restoring all that was broken and worn. Thank you hardly seem enough, but thank you it is from the far reaches of my heart. Joyce & Don Chriscoe, and Rick Miller, my brother, who can't wait to hear it again

1941 Silvertone Mod. 1840
I picked up the Silvertone on Wednesday and it works very well. I can get many local stations without the use of an antenna, and am experimenting with an antenna for best reception on farther stations. I am quite pleased with the quality of work and the commitment to making things right. I will not hesitate to refer others to your service and will send you the Crosley soon. Thanks again.

cabinet. Thanks for your great service. Will recommend you to others

1923 Atwater Kent Model 10 breadboard radio and AK model M horn
I made it home ok with my 1924 Atwater Kent breadboard radio and hooked it all up. I'm very pleased to say that it works like brand new. You did a fantastic job bringing it back to life.
The older gentleman that I got it from told me that it hasn't ran since the day before his parents were married, March 2nd 1932 (76 years ago).
Good job Tony ! Thanks again for the sound of the past.

1959 Nordmende Tanhauser table radio
The radio, Nordmende Tannhauser model that you have restored, is working like a new radio. The sound is superior to the sound of today’s technology. The station selection is working fine, tone selection with any of the controllers is working great.
I want to thank you for the fine work and professional approach. The trip to your place was worth the time and drive. Please do not retire, the folks with vintage radios need you.

Yes, the radio arrived on time and in beautiful condition. I had forgotten
