The everything set (Jun, 1979)

The everything set

It’s a carry-along entertainment and information center—AM, FM, CB, public service, aircraft, and weather bands, three-inch TV, cassette tape—along with a built-in mike and sleep switch. Six D cells power it. It’s $249.95, from Sampo, 1050 Arthur Ave., Elk Grove Village, III. 60007.

    Does all of the above, but none of it terribly well, I’m guessing. At least it has modern 1980s plastic styling. In the same time period someone gave me a multi-band radio with a body of faux-reptilian plastic-skin-over-cardboard.

    At first I thought it was from Sanyo but on closer inspection it reads Sampo. I’ve never heard of Sampo

    Battery-powered DTV tuner not included.

    I miss the days of real television signals.

    Around 2000 Sampo released a DVD player that you could, if you knew how to get to the secrt menu, turn off the Macrovision copy protection so you could copy a DVD (probably to a VHS tape.).
