Beginning with a small, streamlined radio he spotted at an antique show, South Florida collector Harvey Mattel built a collection of radios that now numbers in the many hundreds and includes some of the most coveted receivers in existence. In conversation with Wolfsonian development director Michael Hughes, Mattel will reveal what sparked his passion for radios, share how his collecting interests have evolved, and speak about some of the most significant pieces he has acquired over the years.

Organized with Miami Design Preservation League and presented as part of Art Deco Weekend.
