Here is a copy of a letter written by a contemporary and friend of A. H. Grebe, Richard S. Egolf.

William Paley was kind enough to send it to me after my inquiry about working at CBS to a start in the media business.

Roy D. Grebe found an interesting article covering the decline of AM radio in the American Spectator honoring A. H. Grebe for his early achievements which included founding the New York City radio station that later became WCBS, still a top rated AM radio station.  The mention of A. H. Grebe is towards the end of the article.  Link here.

Henry Rogers Performs The Glow-Worm Idyl

This was shot January 2011 in Henry and Sharon’s home, just above their Western Historic Radio Museum. It was a surprise to learn that Henry is an accomplished musician. At the tail end of the video, Henry is in the museum speaking about Grebe radios being a favorite choice among hams in the 1920’s.

The video is a bit shaky because it was shot with a small portable Flip camera.

We’ve received a request for help to repair the cabinetry of this Grebe Synchrophase AC6.  The owner is looking to find a picture to enlarge to have the scroll work replaced to look like the original.
