End of Tokyo's Version of "Radio Row"*

"Tokyo's world-famous Akihabara district lost one of its signature stores on Saturday, and with it a piece of the area's rich electronics history faded away.

"The Radio Store, one of the landmarks that gave Akihabara its "Electric Town" nickname, closed its doors for the last time on Saturday evening after 64 years in business."

Read all about it at PC World.

Thank you, Norman Wald, W9VQ, for relaying this story to me.

* New York City's "Radio Row" disappeared in the 1960s.
