I'm getting a real charge from these old radios. I acquired one the other day I actually didn't need to do a thing to but plug in and enjoy. I only had a few like that. Most require a little or extensive work. I hooked my transmitter into my CD player, put in some Tommy Dorsey and listened to it via this radio-a 1937 Zenith 12-S-266. It has twelve tubes, hence the prefix "12".
Check out the acoustical 12" adjustable speaker.
There's the famous Zenith "green eye" at the top of the dial that will let you know when you've honed in on the station. The cabinet has beautiful wood and the pic doesn't do it justice. i didn't think I was gong to be able to get it upstairs and the FedEx guy wouldn't help. I had to slide it up six stair steps and when I got to the top slid it across the floor and then tipped it up to open the box which took about an hour! Really, they really had it packed.
