Picked this up today,

Whats cool about it is it was purchased at the Sears here in town and has the local TV stations on the buttons.

Don't power it up until it has been serviced. Ask if you need assistance... :)

I like the narrow over/under cabinet style better than the huge side-by-side combo shown on the front of the Photofact!

Looks like a nice survivor. All the buttons and knobs are there, always a plus. I've pretty much stopped buying radios that are missing knobs.

Give it a good cleaning, a nice wax job with furniture paste wax, and a new grill cloth, and it will be really spiffy!

Probably, when it was sold, the stations on the buttons were all AM radio stations, not TV stations... The evolution of broadcasting.
