1970'S GE CLOCK RADIO

Lester Wiggler attributes his survival through the summer of 1979 solely to a lowly GE AM/FM clock radio. The radio sat on the shelf above the condiment table at the Hog n' Jog Drive-in in Dothan, Alabama. Lester worked at the Hog n' Jog as a grill cook during the long hot summer of '79. The restaurant owner, Milton Sidaphries allowed the boys in the kitchen to listen to the radio at a "reasonable" volume. So when Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven came on the radio, Lester knew he would have almost 8 minutes of mental respite will grilling Hog n' Jog deluxe burgers. He would watch the seconds hand slowly sweep as Jimmy Page's guitar riffs melded with the sound of sizzling burgers.

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
Here's a cool vintage GE model 7-4550A clock radio ready for you retro decor. We are dating this item to the late 1970's (GE date code 4848). It was assembled in Singapore. It is 9" (23cm) wide, 5" (13cm) high and 5" (13cm) deep. The unit features a working analog clock and wake to music with AM and FM tuner. The top and front have a faux walnut grain finish with black on the sides and back.

CONDITION:
This clock radio is in very good vintage condition. The radio and clock work well with a decent sound and good tuner. The simulated walnut case is in good shape with only a few light surface scratches. The clear plastic face window has some light scuffs but is good shape. We found no cracks or breaks to the plastic and all the knobs turn smoothly.
