I soldered into the socket. If you twist slightly..the existing bulb leads break and it pops right out.

you can see on my socket, it'* fried brittle. If I was going to solder it was just as easy to solder the lamp right to the board.

I did and thought that was odd. I've seen probably 10 of these and never noticed one fried. Was that one of the replacements?

Great! I'll go to Radio Shack and do the same!

However, is there a specific wire to use for soldering? I have no idea for that kind of thing.

I just fixed my radio. I soldered it right to the circuit board like Travis did. My only disappointment is that it'* not as bright as it used to be in the daylight. But now I have my clock back so I'm happy
