An Abbotwares radio, known as “Atwater Kent’s love child from a drunken night in a trophy shop,” has been listed on EBay. Usually these radios, which were made in Los Angeles, take the form of horses (or the elusive Hula Girl radio). I’ve never seen the Babe Ruth version before. For all I know it sings “Hello, My Baby” on the hour.
This item is listed as Buy It Now for $1,499.99, which means it will never grace the city room of the L.A. Daily Mirror. And we can all be thankful for that.
