2013-03-14_17-14-10_934This Emerson radio dates back to the late 1940’s. The cabinet was designed by the studios of Raymond Loewy, famed industrial designer.  Lowey was responsible for the design of the Shell Oil logo, Studebaker automobiles, Coca-cola products and the US postal service eagle logo.  It was quite unusual for a company like Emerson to build an entry level FM-only radio at a time when AM was king.  Unfortunately this radio does not perform as well most AM radios of its day.
