THOMAS MODEL 1947 RADIO REVIEW

The model 1947 Collector's Edition radio from Thomas features switchable AFC, AM/FM reception (including the extended portion of the AM band), a lighted horizontal analog tuning dial, a built-in power cord and a cassette player. It is a moderately large table radio with a pleasant, authentic appearance.

The Thomas 1947 doesn't have a telescopic antenna but it does offer a built-in antenna wire. There is a fairly large built-in speaker on the front. It delivers clear sound up to a high level of volume and provides good reception. The one-button cassette deck on the side of the radio offers an "Auto Stop" feature.

It has three easy-to-use knobs on the front panel; volume/power, tuning and band/AFC. It operates on standard North American AC power. The Thomas 1947 Collector's Edition radio used for this review was manufactured in April, 1995. One of these sold for nine dollars plus S/H in fair condition at an online auction during 2011.
