Realistic made some nice radios in the 70's. Come to think of it, radio design improved overall in the 70's.


The "Flavoradio" came in a variety of flavors, I mean colors.....plum, orange, pistachio, chocolate, blueberry, strawberry and lemon. I'm still seeking a few more (lemon yellow and some of the two-tone sets) to complete the set. A rare ivory (vanilla) version is out there somewhere.


This version of the Flavoradio sold from 1972 till 1986. They were redesigned two more times and were discontinued in 2001. It was a successful run.

The price tag varied from $8 to $5.99 and I must say they perform very well for such a "bargain" priced radio.
