My how inflation has run wild on a so-so radio. I wonder if there is a I Love Lucy radio.

You should get this one, it already has the handle and the antenna installed. :D

They don't often show up in that condition, it would actually be a shame to modify it to "Gilligan" status.

It also comes with the original batteries, those are extremely valuable because they never go dead. :lol:

Many won't admit how much they loved that show, especially if you were a kid at the time. By how much they'll spend on a replica of the original radio prop it's pretty obvious!

Oh I admit it, I loved the show as a kid, and still enjoy it once in a while now. I have the whole series on DVD.
But I won't spend hundreds on the radio. :roll:

I admit too, although I watched it after school as reruns in the '70's. I enjoyed it more as a kid though when I really thought at the end of the episode they'd finally get off the Island! I used to get so ticked-off when Gilligan would ruin everything! :D

I used to compose crossword puzzles for our company newspaper. One was titled "Just Sit Right Back And You'll Hear A Tale":

Here is the link which reviews the I Love Lucy radio. This is a common radio that many of us have seen on eBay and just passed it by.

There happens to be one available for sale on the bay:

The radio on Gilligans Island was a major feature on the show, hence the serious collector interest. As a big fan of I Love Lucy I don't even recall that episode with the Westinghouse radio. I doubt that set will ever sky-rocket in value.

Agree. That radio would have become a Lucy collectible a long time ago.

sold $$$. Hard to believe the original batteries still powered this radio up after 60 years.
