This 1936 Zenith Radio with incredible art deco design that fits the is simple amazing. It does have the family-gather-round feel, but it does announce its presence and establish a context and that's a lot for a radio to do.
Vintage Radios mine was pink and then aqua blue. Still have my tiny transitor radio I got for my big birthday from my father~ We used to walk around with those radios held up to our ears, we thought we were too cool ! WLS was our station from Chicago!
