Charlie Rose' by Samuel Beckett

Charlie Rose Something has happened to PBS favorite "Charlie Rose." The erudite conversations and sober intellectualism have been replaced by an absurd world where illogic, inane dialogues, and open hostility rule. The one-on-one interview between Charlie and his guest begins as usual but quickly goes awry, so much so that Charlie is warned that, somewhere, a man named "Steve" is "not happy." But who is "Steve" and why is he angry? And why does the mere mention of his name stop Charlie cold?

Made in Hong Kong

 Made_in_hong_kong LA6NCA's WW2 German Radio Collection Pictures. (From Endless Parade of Excellence)

Generally, radios made in Hong Kong between 1964 till the late 60's lacked all the style and color that made Japanese radios so popular and collectable. Today, these radios do not fetch big money on the collector's market. Generally, I will not pay more than $5 or $10 for one.
