Description

Remember the 1960s when a teenager being a part of the "In Crowd" depended on having a transistor radio. Teenagers of that time did not leave home without it and teachers abhorred it. For those of you too young to remember transistor radios, think of them as MP3 Players and their importance in defining your "coolness". For your consideration is this early 1970s Black plastic s AM/FM 2-Band transistor radio made by Precor in Taiwan. On the face of the radio is a clear plastic window with settings for AM and FM radio stations; settings are controlled by a tuning wheel on the top of the radio. The FM dial numbers are Green and the AM dial numbers are Yellow. Wording on the dial bar reads "AM" in yellow and "FM" in green. An audio wheel, on the right side of the radio turns the radio On or Off and sets the loudness of the radio. The radio was made in Taiwan and distributed by Preco. It has a 16" telescoping antenna and a 6.25" carrying strap. The radio measures 5" by 3.75" by 1.75". A 9-volt battery is required to operate the radio. It shows some wear; however, there are no chips or cracks in the case. The ear plug in one of the pictures is not available. Do not know if it works, installed a new battery and was not successful in getting any response.
