    If the fake repro is at all accurate, I think Mom has a hot chassis in a flimsy wooden shell.*

    FWIW my Father stayed up way after midnight filling up paperwork from his Doctor office , gnarling about the bureaucracy ("it takes me 10 minutes to check a Patient and 20 to fill properly all his Health Insurance forms") , while listening to his Philips AC DC Bakelite cased radio, with the huge Litz wire antenna coil wound around the hardboard back.
    Which one day turned from Black to beautiful hue of Blue, which I could never ever reproduce.
    When asked, : "a Patient has no money, and offered to paint the radio in exchange".
    He never charged the poor people and many *literally* paid with chickens.
    Alive at first until my Mother asked them: "please, at least bring them killed and cleaned, I can`t stand that"

    Oh, the music?
    Being a dyed in the wool Patriot, he only listened to Tango and Folkloric Music and wasnīt very happy about my love for Rock and Blues but didnīt stop me either.

    The radio itself?
    I still keep it, but donīt dare to plug it in, for fear of having electrolytics explode and no real wish to *listen* to it, itīs kept strictly for Nostalgia reasons.

    You don't need to close it. Glad to hear you found what you were looking for.
    Sorry about the spam thing, I was mistaken. I hope you can sort out that link that is causing you trouble.
