Call me old school but I still love the radio. I could listen to NPR pretty much 24/7–and might–if it weren’t for my music-obsessed sigOth and those kids of mine who aren’t into Leonard Lopate just yet.
If you have a radio junkie on the gift list, here are some radios that are mindblowingly gorgeous.
The wooden radios
by Singgih Kartono are called modern-viintage, but they’re more modern
than vintage in their eco-sensibiity. They’re not cheap with the Magno Radio
shown above starting at $150, but they are all handcrafted out of
sustainable wood in an Indonesian farming village, where a new tree is
planted for every one used. And oh lordy are they stunning.
The radios are MP3 compatible too, so when the AM is getting wonky, you
can switch to your Benny Goodman tracks. I mean…Jay Z. -Liz
