The Garage!

Ever since I purchased a home, one of my goals was to build a vehicle work area which was suitable enough to preform most maintenance tasks. I have finally reached that point, for the most part.

McCurdy Radio Consoles

If you ask many people who work in Radio today if they are familiar with the name McCurdy, chances are you will find that most people have never heard of the name. McCurdy Radio was a Canadian company (They did have a US Division, located in Buffalo, NY, however I believe they originated in Canada - correct me if I am wrong) which produced high end analog audio equipment, mainly geared towards the broadcast industry. To my knowledge, the company no longer exists, which is a shame. However, those in the know, still collect McCurdy equipment.
