Default When Radios Were a Thing of Beauty !

You got that Right.Wayyyyyy back when Radios (and TV sets too, the TV
sets wooden cabinets.I once worked at a factory in Jackson that made
wooden TV set cabinets for Zenith and other companies.It was the old
Storkline factory before that) were thangs of Beauty.Nice Looking thangs
to Look at and also to Enjoy.Nowadays the only Good Looking thangs to
Look at are some of them wimmins.

Back in 1925 Crosley made a 'pup' radio that sold for $10.
One tube.

Their advertising dog was a ripoff from the RCA dog.
