About Us




Mike Frenchek worked on radios at a very early age. In 1965, he was, at that time, the youngest person to graduate from Pittsburgh Institute of Electronics.

In 1974, he was graduated from the University of Pittsburgh as an Electrical Engineer, and was selected Outstanding Senior, Electrical Engineering. Following graduation, Mike worked at Bell of PA, later Bell Atlantic, and retired as a Director in 1998.

After working with a Silicon Valley start up company, Mike returned home and started his own business, combining his enjoyment of antique automobiles and love of old radios. In 2003, Retro Radio Restoration was born. Chris, Mike’s devoted wife, recently retired after 35 years in public education and joined Mike in the business. As a result, his life has changed…for the better! You will see us both at the car shows.
