GLOBE ALL TRANSISTOR

This classy Globe Boys Radio was manufactured in Japan circa 1960. It has no model number and there is no mention inside of who manufactured it although it does use two NEC transistors... This radio was also sold under the names Angel, Domex, Windsor, Sanwa, Trent and probably others.

This Globe Boys Radio features a juicy under-painted tuning dial with a neat little black and gold Globe badge beside it. 'All Transistor' is proudly displayed at the bottom of the dial and I find this amusing, think about it, 'All Transistor'; all two of them! A bit of clever fifties marketing psychology in evidence here.

This is a somewhat formal looking Boys Radio. The textured metal speaker grill has a finer portion at the top and this reminds me of a wraparound silver sash on a suit. And if you stare at the tuning dial for long enough it begins to look like a bow tie. Yeah it's the school ball all over again!

 

 

I wonder how many of these Globe Boys Radios spent their days lazing on the beach with California teenagers?
