Jim Collings

The Oklahoma Vintage Radio Club is a group of greater Oklahoma City, Oklahoma residents who share a great interest in vintage radios and other electronics. We welcome new members and invite members and non-members alike to frequent our swap meets and other events held throughout the year. During our meetings, various vintage electronics are shown and discussed and often times, "how to" demonstrations are conducted. We meet the second Saturday of each month at Spencer's Smokehouse & BBQ, 9900 NE 23rd St Midwest City OK 73141. We have dinner and conversation around 6:00 PM and the meeting itself begins at 7:00 PM. Please -- come and join us!
