Article Published: 10/17/05 Chet Graber repairs tube-type radios - those ornate wooden boxes with fancy dials that brought news and weather from around the world into the homes of a generation of prairie people.Today, most are stored away in attics and basements. A few show up in antique shops.Production of tube-type radios ended in 1969. They were very durable, says Graber, 64, retired telecommunications department head at Mitchell Technical Institute.
