Restored the radio sometime back. It's interesting as it is AM and FM manufactured in 1949. No AFC on the FM and very clear reception. AM is also stellar. Good tone. I just picked up the RCA record player. It has either been very well maintained or has been restored in the past. My guess would be it is original as it still possessed a non working factory part number cartridge. I picked up a new cartridge from Gary at Voice of Music and performed some adjustments to get it landing, rejecting and tracking correctly and wow, what fun. Listening to Elvis on this is like having a time machine to take you back to the 50's.
