Back to Radios

Back to Tom Polk's Home Page

I recall being disappointed with my very first radio, a white two transistor model, because it had a grille, but no speaker, only an earphone. I started lobbying my parents for a six transistor radio with a speaker. So next Christmas I got a Silvertone just like the one on the left.

The radios we had as teenagers are long lost, but these two come closest.

My brother had a taller black Sony with a big round grille similar to the one on the right.
