Retro-Rockin' Radio! Remember the days of sitting around listening to the radio instead of watching the television? Even if you don't remember those days why not recreate them with the nostalgic vacuum tube designed radio.The spirit of radio's Golden Age is reflected in this nostalgic vacuum tube designed AM/FM radio. Illuminated tubes add to the innovative design .The warm glow of a radio dial and the tubes behind them contributes to the ambience. It uses 4 AA batteries (not included) for easy portability. High-tech audio components provide clear sound, while the old-time illumination effects are so realistic, you'd almost expect to hear The Shadow or X Minus One coming out of the speaker instead of todays news and music.
About Golden Age & Tube Design:
Our Spotlight on The Golden Age of Radio generally defines the Golden Age Radio Era as that period between the advent of commercial radio "broad casts" (the term first used to describe wider - broad - casts of radio air waves) in 1921, and somewhere between 1965 and 1968. With vastly improved circuitry and tube design came an even greater focus on sound -- and imagination. Sound clear enough to evoke far more than just auditory responses. These were sounds clear enough to transport their audience anywhere the human imagination could listen to--or imagine. Even to places that its audience had never thought much about at all . . . before Radio. Read more about the Golden Age Radio Spotlights.
