Yup, Ole Happee Hank and his weiner-ific side kick Pepito will be bringin' you the Round Up from time to time. I illustrated these fellers especially for your bloggy enjoyment!
Without further spur draggin' lets git to our 1st Round Up!

This is one of those accidental collections. I never expected to have a shelf of radios but somehow, here we are. I especially like the colors and shapes of these AM-band beauties!
I can't even remember which one started me off, but I really like them all.
Some of them work, some don't but it doesn't matter they are more for looking than listening these days
The blue one is my absolute fave. I found it in a box of free yard sale leftovers. It was dirty and mistreated, but cleaned up very nicely. Its shape is exactly what my dream house would look like!
The orange ball radio is so mod! I found it in a thrift store for a song because of its busted lip.
This big white guy came from one of my trips to the Atta Boy Shop N' Swap events.
Check out these choppers too!
I found this conversation piece at the local Salvation Army. It is a hinged plaster cast of someone's immaculate set of teethies! I bet they thought, "Heck, somebody will buy them"...yup..they were right!
One of the few AM/FM radios in the collection. This one reminds me of my dad, a huge radio buff. I think we had one like it when I was a kid.
Who doesn't love a transistor radio?
Another AM/FM with a Random vintage picture of a random child
Portable transistor radios always remind me of Stephen King's Stand By Me movie, specifically the Lolly Pop song scene!
This atomic looking pink radio used to sit in my kitchen before I had enough radios to start a museum! It looked real sharp next to the electric mixer. Down below the radio collection is my main record player and other knick knacks, but by gum, we'll have to save those for another post!
Thanks for looking folks, Happy Trails from the I.H.E. Round Up and Happee Hank & Pepito!
