    A roughly 5" cube, probably a product of the late 80's or so (I don't really know?) it is an otherwise still perfectly functional blue-display (!) digital clock radio. If its design isn't 'iconic' for some reason it should be...?

    I kinda think similar clocks were (briefly) commonly found on the nightstands in higher-end hotels in their day, where they didn't last too long until being replaced with otherwise nightstand clocks that also had CD players built in to them...stay tuned, I'll show my example of those one of these days too... <LOL>
