If there’s one classic song that captures the gist of Mod Radio’s mission, it’s “Stayin’ Alive,” by the Bee Gees. Armed with experience in electronics and fiber optics, founder Jon Almeda enables outdated objects to “stay alive” by rewiring them as speaker systems that hook up to mp3 players and iPods. And the encore? Every speaker preserves the special, retro design details that vintage collectors know and love. It’s tantamount to having your cake and eating it, too.
In addition to classic radios, Mod Radio also works magic on relics like cameras and globes—all of which are available here on Fab. Tune in to our conversation with Almeda, the rock star who makes it all possible.
