DESCRIPTION: This double throated singer looks like it spend its life in a tanning salon. It started off as pink beige color but has yellowed evenly throughout to a butterscotch blonde color. The only part that retains some of its original hue is the bottom and insides. Otherwise, it is practically the same shade of yellow blondish butterscotch-y color all around. It is a clear sounding and loud as a banshee! Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by GE in late 1950s early 60s in excellent+ working condition.
