Panasonic R-1052

As I check through my Flickr stats I am always surprised to discover that the radio pics with the most views are the cheaper made in Hong Kong ones from the 1970's. I pride myself in acquiring hard to find, rare, collectible and historic radios but ironically these cheaper varieties are the most popular. So I dug out a couple of sets that had been collecting dust in the basement, cleaned them up and uploaded them. It'll be interesting to see how many views they get....


This blue Panasonic was sold at the same time a the famous 'Panapets', 'Toot A Loops' and 'Rolling Tone' radios. Soon I will upload a Panasonic ad which shows all the radios together. This radio performs well, strong reception and nice tone for a small pocket radio. The cabinet is nicely tapered.
