You Can Have Them, Also!
I've also seen these radios (and others) in little sales flyers which offer all kinds of household "goodies", that have been mailed out on a bulk basis; the problem is, these replica radios are listed for $99 to $129 apiece!
To be sure, they are NOT tube radios, but transistorized versions of such. The cabinets of mine are real wood. Both radios (as well as others) are typically AM/FM with a cassette player on the side. In my opinion, if any more show up on the market, they ought to include a CD/mp3 player, as well- there's plenty of room in the cabinets on these models. It might be interesting to experiment with an input jack to enable the radio(s) to take CD/mp3 audio devices, but, since they are not stereo, an audiophile might not appreciate the effort. Although the audio is monaural, I still enjoy some of my old-time radio shows played on cassettes through them.
Just another little tip from ol' "Bud Santa"! Ho ho ho! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
