My husband bought this radio at a garage sale about 30 years ago. This yellowed piece of paper was taped along the side and has all the old Chicago AM/FM radio stations listed on it. We had it in the house for awhile and then it migrated out to the garage so my husband could listen to it when he was working on his trucks. Somewhere along the line it got shoved up on a shelf, paint cans got placed in front of it and we forgot all about it.
Last week I saw an article online about old transistor radios and it got me to thinking about this table top model that we had. I couldn't imagine what the heck happened to it, although I knew we wouldn't have thrown it out. After much digging around, and lots of swearing at the amount of crap we have in
Based on the model number on the back and a little online research, I am guessing that this model was made in 1961. I cleared off a place on top of my office file cabinet and now I can listen to music while I'm working or crafting - usually country music on US 99.5.
Of course, Louie walked into the office, took one look at it and wanted to know how his radio ended up in my office.... I bet he hasn't even thought about that radio in about 15 years. ;-)
