    We have an old upright valve radio from the early 20th century. It was going until a short while ago when it blew a valve and, unfortunately, we don't seem to be able to buy the valves any more. It receives AM and shortwave which was quite popular before FM and TV. It is a lovely piece of furniture 34" tall and 29" wide and 13" deep in veneer. It has a 12" speaker and has a lovely tone. (I used the old inches measurement because that's the age of the radio.) We also have a transistor radio which is on most of the time and a radio in the car and our motorhome, both of which are always on when we are on the road. I could not live without the music on the radio, but SWMBO does not mind if it is on or not.

    Sorry Roscoe, no luck with first contact. I'll be seeing another on weekend if you haven't already found a copy by then.

    Roscoe: There are several suppliers of Thermionic Valves for vintage radios such as in the link below.
    The cost including shipping needs to be considered. Due to it's age, your radio could use
    some work such as replacing old capacitors and carbon resistors to restore optimal performance.

    Have you tried the Public library? They have lots of DVDs of NZ films.

    I saw the film on big screen at Sky City Theatre approx 2 years ago. We owe those pioneers a big debt. I listen radio a lot -mainly RNZ National but switch to other stations for specific programs -including Hauraki .
    Lots of people listen to radio -not just Trades workers. . Who wants to be restricted to watching "reality" TV shows which dominate the screens?

    Just to let you know that I watched the film (Wainui managed to obtain a copy for me) and was not very impressed. It was not very accurate. For example, they showed one of the crew calling "Mayday" when they hit the rocks, in a panicy voice. The crew member who made that call, Paul Lineman, made the call in a very calm voice. They did not have anyone playing any of the DJs or other members of the crew. They did say that they played tapes on board the ship but did not say that the programmes were recorded in Auckland - there were no DJs on the ship - flown over to the Great Barrier Island then taken out to the ship by launch. They were not dropped into the water as shown in the film. I could tell you a lot more inaccuracies but to get a much better and accurate account I would suggest that you read the book "The Shoestring Pirates."
