ASCII Radio

I occasionally post some radio images here, usually pictures of the notable old tuners I encounter. This is a bit different. I discovered recently the mysterious little otaku world of ASCII art. We all have seen it, but rarely is it acknowledged for what it is. It's an art media like any other. They grabbed my attention with a few radios. I've credited where I can do so. I am the most impressed with the WEFT logo.
