About The Radio
This is a 8 tube superheterodyne “all wave” console with push-button tuning, built in adjustable loop antenna and a “slide rule” dial. It has the slanted front introduced by Philco in 1938 as a “No Squat, No Stoop, No Squint” feature and is also built to receive television sound. Philco's plan for television implementation was to augment your radio with a video unit equipped with a low power transmitter for the audio. Thus your radio would not be outdated when television finally arrived.
