I had my car radio repaired there when I first moved to Alexandria after college graduation in 1990. 🙂

I purchased a new AM car radio from them in the mid 60s and it still works. I am 81 so now I think it will outlast me. It outlasted my car so is now used in my shop off a battery eliminator. the radio is an Automatic model 8100M tuned to 700AM WLW AM 700 at night to listen to the truckers show with national weather updates using a car radio antenna from the 60s
