Radios Now Built in Grandfather’s Clock, Tuned by Remote Control
RADIO receiving sets have been manufactured in a wide variety of forms since the coming of broadcasting, but the latest and perhaps most unique appearance which a receiver has assumed is that of a grandfather’s clock. And because such a type of clock belonged to an age which did not enjoy modern day conveniences, it should not be thought that inconvenience is one of the features of this new radio, for the very opposite is the case. To bring in the stations all the listener has to do is press a button on a tuning dial at the arm of his chair, and lo! the music issues from the solemn looking clock with perfect clarity. The manner of tuning is demonstrated in the accompanying photograph. The tuning dial is hooked to the receiver with a concealed cord.
