Here's an interesting article showing that a $90 Zenith radio from 1962 would cost $650 in today's dollars:

Wow! That's a lot of radio for 25 bucks Angelo.
Great snag.
Thanks for sharing.

I have one of these too!
It was my very first (bought new)...
First.. well... first real grown-up possession.
First radio certainly.. Gave me a sense of freedom, being able to tune stuff in from the outside world, as an early adolescent. Particularly while laying in bed in the evening....
My pride and joy for a while there... so naturally I still have it.
Still works fine... similar to your's in condition.
Few repairs over the years... the battery holder issue for instance.

So nice to see someone else using one!
Hmm... I think I'll go get mine out of the closet and plug it in.
