How to Contact Ron Ramirez
Tell me what you think about my web site. I welcome all of your comments and suggestions. First, however, allow me to answer my most often asked questions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you give me information on my radio?
Sorry, no, I can not answer such a vague request. I need to know specifically what kind of information you seek.
Can you tell me the value of my radio or what it is worth?
I am sorry, but I am unable to answer questions asking "what is my radio worth" and "what is the value of my radio." I suggest you purchase an antique radio price guide; you can find one such guide here. Alternatively, you may also look at this page on Phil Nelson's excellent website for a discussion on antique radio pricing.
I need a certain part, tube, needle, etc. for my radio. Can you help me?
For whatever radio part you may need, please take a look at this site's Resources Page. You will find a number of parts vendors on these pages. I should add at this point that I do not sell radio parts, nor do I have any radio parts or tubes for sale!
I have a newer Philco Music System, Philco record player, Philco CD player, etc. I need help with it; it does not work; etc. Can you help me with it?
I regret that I cannot help you with the modern Philco Music Systems such as the AM/FM/CD players or the modern Philco brand record players. Please contact Polyconcept for information about these units.
Can you recommend someone in my area to restore my radio?
No, sorry, I can not. You will need to do a Web search for antique radio repair. A number of people are performing this service, but not every city and town has one close by. The days of the neighborhood radio-TV repair shop have now gone, along with 2 cent Tootsie Rolls, DeSotos, Oldsmobiles and Pontiacs.
A note to Earthlink users: It is very frustrating for me to reply to your e-mail and then receive a message asking that I fill out a form so that I can be added to your list of approved senders. I immediately delete these form messages. I suggest you contact me from a web-based e-mail provider such as Yahoo, Google G-mail or Hotmail if you don't want to receive any e-mail at your Earthlink e-mail address. So if you write to me from an Earthlink address and do not receive a reply...now you know why.
Thank you for your cooperation.
NEW! If you want me to identify a Philco radio for you, you may now attach a photo of the radio to your message below (max. 2 MB)!
I dislike spam as much as you do. I will never give, nor sell, your E-mail address to anyone else. Never have, never will. It is required only for me to be able to answer your inquiry; for without it, I am unable to answer you. Thank you.
