Transistor Radio Quartet (1985)

I bought a bunch of these radio carcasses (see photo) from the great Argo Electronics store on Canal Street when I lived at Canal & W. Broadway at the time. Amazing place in an era when Canal St - and Soho in general - was full of amazing places. I bridged the speaker connection with a resistor and modulated the signal of an AM radio patched into my Tascam 144 Portastudio. I don't even remember making this piece, but I'm glad I did.
