Aetna 653 (1936)


Aetna 653 (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Here is a terrific six tube super-het radio made for the exclusive distribution by Walgreens drug stores. Like so many retail giants, they adopted the distinct brand name after the mystical Mount Aetna in Greece. Most interesting was their adoption on the multi-colored dial with the mountain proudly displayed. This cube shaped radio has been beautifully and professionally refinished with a dramatic use of veneers. The radio sports a full range speaker, which vents from the top of the radio to offer a 360 degree "big room" sound quality. The knobs and speaker cloth are factory originals. Other than a bit of stress to the 85 year old back lit dial (see picture #2) the radio offers a tremendous presence. My technician has completed his professional repairs and the radio sings as new. His addition of a mini-jack allows your connection of the radio to any type of modern device. Now you can listen to any kind of content you wish and enjoy the radio in an unlimited way. Bluetooth is available for only $25 additional! 14"W x 11-3/4"H x 9-1/2"D.
