Thank you Glenn, great site: Curtis Mathes is one of those brands that's been around forever, but isn't necessarily a household name. This old black & white television is from the company's earlier days when they were still making TV's in the US (they were actually the last fully US owned electronics company when they closed their doors). Curtis Mathes used to be a private label brand that billed itself as "The most expensive television set in America; and darn well worth it", and were only sold through special channels. Sometimes they had stand-alone stores that sold CM product exclusively. In my neighborhood Curtis Mathes equipment came from the hardware store. I was most aware of the brand when the home video market really warmed up in the late 70's/early 80's. Curtis Mathes was there with their own branded VCR's and TV's.

Wonderful site I remember going to the "Curtis Mathes Showroom" in my home town back in the 1970s and 1980s what a awesome display of televisions VCRs and turntables that was. I bought my first color TV from the Curtis Mathes dealer in 1970 and it still works today! Thank you for this great web site.

I truly love this site, all the wonderful memories it brings back to me about my parents Curtis Mathes television and stereo. They would player their Perry Como and Andy Williams LP's and all the great singers of the 1950's and 1960's on their wonderful Curtis Mathes stereo. I saw my first color televison program on their huge Curtis Mathes console television. I only now wish I had saved those consoles when my parents past away. It was so stupid of me to leave them for the trash man to haul off to who know where. I really feel horrible about it now.

Dear Glenn Thank you for your very interesting website. It certainly is a trip down memory lane. And thanks for your information about my stereo. It looks quite presentable for its age! I enjoyed reading about your association with Curtis Mathes. It certainly must have been rewarding to see your designs come to life.

Love the site! Growing up in the 80's and 90's my grandfather always owed CM electronics. I still have a stereo he purchased in ~86 which is part of my "vintage" system!

I just love this web page! Thank you Glenn for your wonderful job at saving our heritage.The first color television I owned was a Curtis Mathes I bought right here in Fort Worth. It was the best television I ever own. I gave it to my neighbor out in Los Angeles when I moved back to Texas in the late 1970?s. I wish to this day that I keep that CM color console.

I just love this site! This really brings back the memories. Thank you Glenn for keeping the golden age alive. I remember the holidays around the Curtis Mathes stereo and television, Daddy would get so excited to play his latest records on the turntable.
