DESCRIPTION: This clock radio has all the bells and whistles! It's big and pink and stylistically verbose like a 1958 Oldsmobile like this one.
If radios could have tail fins, this radio would have tall fins a mile high! You have buttons. You want dials? You got dials! How about some gold faschia plating? Let's not forget the faceted stars! The final piece de resistance has got to be the push button indicators with red dots identifying the function you've selected! Dig the Cadillac looking 'Fleetwood' logo font!
