Crosley Nomad Portable Radio: Retro Look, Modern Sound

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 7, 2009


When I talk about retro tech, I’m usually going on about stuff from the late 1970s or early 1980s since those were the years that really defined me as the geek that I am today.

The wood and tweed-vinyl construction Crosley Nomad Portable Radio may look like an old radio from the 1930s, but under the hood, it’s all new.

And you won’t have to plug this radio into the wall – it runs on 4 AA batteries so you can take it anywhere.

Just load your iPod up with old episodes of Little Orphan Annie, Amos ‘n Andy and the original broadcast of War of the Worlds, and you’ll be all set.

The Crosley Nomad is available exclusively from Urban Outfitters for $72 (USD).
