Listen to the Radio the 1950's wayThis is not some sort of cheap retro radio made in lousy plastic. It is an original 1950's long, medium and short wave AM radio receiver Talisman 308U made in the then Czechoslovak Republic by the company Tesla. Yes, Tesla, which of course has nothing to do with the American sports car manufacturer. I bought it some years ago in Bucharest for a few Euros. It still works nicely. Since Germany has shut down all its AM stations, I only can receive Radio Moscow during daytime. At night a wide choice of mostly exotic stations are available. The kids love to turn that dial up and down for hours and hours. Tubes, buttons and dials still fascinate in the 21st century.
