Tune in with antique radios at John Wayne Airport

As a radio producer, collector and fan of airports, here’s an exhibit that resonates with me completely:

A collection of antique and classic radios are currently on display at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California.

Look for these classics in the Vi Smith Concourse Gallery of Terminal A across from Gates 2 through 5 and in Terminal C across from Gates 18 through 21. They will be there till July 16, 2012.

The exhibition, titled Sound Design, features 86 radios from the 1930s, 40s and 50s, all on loan to the airport from the collection of Mark and Janet Hilbert.
