Here is something it seems some radio collectors out there may enjoy and it does complement the other Tradio hotel radio that I had added to my collection on here prior.

This item is about 12 inches across and the radio does work. It would have been set up at a hotel or hospital and someone would deposit from 1 to 5 dimes with each dime giving you an hour of radio play. The radio would have been clamped down onto the headboard where it could be operated by someone lying in bed, thus the reason for the dial being upside down.

The pillow speaker could be placed under the pillow you were sleeping on so the soft sounds of 1950's music could lull you to sleep.... ; )

Thanks for looking as always my friends. Have an awesome weekend! Stay cool if you can where you are as well because it is a scorcher where I am at.... : )

    mikielike in this day and age a comparable price at the hospital wouldn't be 10 cents it would probably come out to like $1000.00 to listen to the radio for an hour. ; ) It appreciate the comment my friend.

    Hi electobacco! This is such an odd piece. How did you know what it was? Did you pull it out of a big pile and knew what it was? I know nothing about the radio collections. I stared at three transistor radios at the thrift yesterday (Little Hercules?? buck and a quarter each) Just didn't know what to do with them.

    Amber thank you for the kind words and comment. I ended up buying this with an old radio collection. So I had an idea of what it was and it was also on an eposide of American Pickers. You may have wanted to pick the radios you found up for the price. I appreciate you loving this item as well. I hope all is good in the windy city and wishing you and your family nothing but the best! : )

    Wow, that's in great shape, and very clean. I've seen a few of these, but they've all looked like they've been beaten up. Enjoy!
