|Stromberg-Carlson Co. based in Rochester New York, made high-quality radios, telephones, and after WWII, televisions. They also entered the broadcast industry, acquiring WHAM in Rochester around 1939. The station changed its call letters to WBZA and is still in operation today. The 61 series had eleven models, including the large, 61-H table radio we have here. This seven-tube, two-band (SB, SW) with its iconic octagon dial and gorgeous veneers, is highly collectible. This radio has had all of the capacitors replaced, resistors and tubes checked and replaced where necessary. We aligned the radio and it plays well across the dial in both bands. Gary did his usual magic, stripping the old finish, repainting, toning and adding just the right amount of black trim. He then applied several coats of lacquer and then hand-rubbed the radio to a beautiful luster. The knobs are original, and a period-correct grille cloth was added. I acquired this radio from a guy that said it was used as a prop in the movie "The Untouchables," but have yet to verify that! 20"W x 11-1/25"H x 10"D.|
