About

Philcoradio.com officially opened on Labor Day 2000.
This website traces its history back to a small site hosted on a local ISP in 1997 (remember when ISPs offered web pages to their customers?). It soon moved to another host.
During those first few years the predecessor to Philcoradio.com did not have very much Philco information.
The site continued to grow until 2000 when Philcoradio.com was established, focusing on vintage Philco radios and related items. It grew exponentially over the next decade and a half.
The Philco Phorum began on September 27, 2005. Like Philcoradio.com, it experienced rapid growth until its membership numbered in the thousands.
In July 2016, the Philcoradio.com website merged with the Philco Phorum to create a combination of a popular online forum and the largest online repository of information on the Web devoted to the history of Philco radio products.
