Zenith radio ... a blaring part of history

Zenith radio console with push buttons, model 78582
The Carnegie Museum has several examples of household items such as radios and phonographs from years ago, including a 1941 radio. At one time, radio dominated the entertainment and news industry. In fact, on December 7, 1941, millions of Americans first heard about the attack on Pearl Harbor. Do you want to see a 1941 radio in person?

Visit the Carnegie Museum, opening again March 1.
