Throwback Thursday - Retro-Radio!

That it looks like a space helmet should be a clue.  This is a Weltron Radio, popular in the 70s.  It features AM and FM radio and an 8-track tape player!--the height of the then mod/ern technology.  The speakers on the side are the ears; the tape player opening is the mouth; it's about the size of a bowling ball and also about the same weight, which is why it never gained popularity as a portable radio, even though it has a handle on top. :))  These are appealing to collectors, especially to those recreating the 70s look in their homes.  This one works, sounds great, and lives at our daughter, Mary and her husband, Isaac's home.  Quite the conversation starter.
