Lafayette Radio was a radio manufacturer and retailer based in Syosset, New York. The company sold radio sets, amateur radio equipment, citizen's band (CB) radios, and other communications equipment, as well as electronic components and tools through retail outlets as well as by mail-order.

Lafayette Radio Electronics (LRE) was established in the 1920s. Lafayette advertised very heavily in all of the major U.S. consumer electronics magazines of the 1960s and 1970s. By the late 1970s Lafayette lost a very competitive battle with the Radio Shack stores. The last Lafayette store closed in 1981.

As of 2003, the Lafayette brand name was re-launched at the CES show that year. Their products are only offered through special dealers and limited retail stores.
