So when I got it home I decided to see if he was right and started poking around for some info. Look at what I found!
This is actually a video from the pilot, so a few of the characters are different - but the radio is the same! I also found this website that talks about it, and I think I will link to that from my auction.
Speaking of auctions, I also found an auction that ended yesterday for the same radio - it is technically a Packard Bell AR-851 transistor radio - and you won't believe what it sold for!
Needless to say, I'm a little excited. I imagine that we will get it posted on Sunday night and see what happens!
I'll be back later to post the rest of my scores, and I have a couple of announcements to make too, so stay tuned! ;)
