Re: [DML] Craig Radio Display Problem



I'm glad this question was brough up because I just bought a used
radio off ebay and of course the wires to the display are all severed.  
I myself would like to get it fixed and Les Huckins, who used to fix
them, no longer does.  

So John could I send mine to you as well to get it fixed?  Thanks!!
