See an old radio in a film, TV episode or a Youtube film?  Share the Find.  I'll start with a Zenith solid state Trans-Oceanic panned in about .5 second on top of a bookshelf in Jeff Spencer's office in a 1961 episode of 77 Sunset Strip.

There is a Concert Grand used as a prop occasionally on Perry Mason.  One of the early mono instruments.

I am not knowledgable enough to recognize brands and models on old TV movies. But I always am attuned (yuk, yuk) to looking for the radios used.
I did notice the Mash series, had a radio, and transmitter in the office, In a number of clips.

PS. YouTube has several hundreds of radios being played, (boring), but tutorials are another matter. Very instructional on repairing of said radios.

I was watching the film To The Shores Of Tripoli on Youtube.  in the last 10 minutes, there is a nice close up of a Motorola 1A5 battery "lunch box" radio, delivering the news about Pearl Harbor.

I was watching Born To Dance on TCM today and in one scene just happened to notice a unit hiding in plain sight.

19&41 posted a Picture with a Sparton Bluebird Glass radio. Those can fetch any where from $2,000 to $5,000 if you can find them. Very Collectable.

Don't forget the AM Broadcast Band radio that was an important part of Gilligan's Island for 3 seasons. It managed to receive local broadcasts while supposedly hundreds of mile away from civilization during the day time!

Went through about 300 pics to try to ID Opie's radio.  Maybe someone with a collectors guide could get it.
