Spring Is in the Airwaves

A pair of ultra-rare circa 1970s KA/Kustom Acoustics loudspeakers, model number unknown, spotted at Angry Mom Records in Ithaca, NY. KA was based in Chicago and is not to be confused with the Kustom, the musical instrument amplifier and pro audio company.

If you were a musician in the 1970s, this was one of the many Kustom amps you saw, or maybe owned. Dig that tuck and roll!


We have no idea what this has to do with audio, but it sure looks cool. Philips Radio ad commemorating the 1948 Winter Olympics.
