Flickr gallery of retro transistor radios

This Flickr gallery of old transistor radios, pointed out by the wonderful Retro-Thing, is surprisingly captivating. You simply don’t see this scope of aesthetic design in today’s line-up of ubiquitous PMPs. Of course, transistor radios had decades to experiment with the form… once PMPs stop being luxury items, I imagine we’ll see the same whimsical design scope that we currently see with USB memory sticks.
