Westinghouse Six Transistor Radio, 1960's

    Newer Older

    When I found this radio, it had batteries from the 1960's inside AND it still worked!

      How did you clean it to gleam like that?

      I think I could just sit and admire your radio collection for hours. Especially if we played some of them. :-)

      I've used this photo several times in my blog when blogging about radioshows.

      If this radio still worked with the old batteries then it's from the Twilight Zone! :^)

      I wondered if you were going to have one of these. I got one for Christmas in 1960. We were allowed to take them to school as long as we didn't play them in class or too loud. We were poor and still had an outdoor toilet, but mom and dad managed to get me and my sister one of these. I look back now, this minute and think how could they afford them. I know I, myself thought I was something because I had one. These memories just brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for preserving so much great history.

      Isn't it funny how these bloggers always say "I used your photo" instead of "can I use your photo"?

      because these fotographers already state all the conditions in their creative commons license how to use the picture and did not mention that they want to be asked for permission first. there could be a reason why this license was invented.
      maybe some of these commentators don't even know what creative commons means or have never used it.

      I'm a great radio fan and so I saw this photo at once. I still have radios that I had and also which still work from the 1960s. I don't understand the frequency dial here because we used to have transistors with metres on them and then when the Japanese sets cornered the market they changed to kHz sometime in the mid 70s. A great radio photo.

      I have one of those. Main weakness is their flimsy plastic battery holder. Otherwise, pretty good looking sets.
