Philco Model 48-464 Brown Bakelite Table Radio (1948)
Another big bakelite radio with 6-tubes and providing BC and SW coverage. Similar styling to the 48-472.
However, this one has had greater usage during its years and the decals have all been eroded, with the
exception of a trace of one above the bottom right knob. Nevertheless this set cleaned up nicely. The
schematic & specifications for this 6-tube radio are all available here, courtesy of NostalgiaAir.
I bought this radio from a small antique store a few towns over. The guy used to call me from time to time
letting me know when he had a radio he thought I might like. Got a few interesting sets from him, including
my AK Kiel 55 table. Unfortunately, a while back I heard this guy had been murdered by his son. He had
moved away to another district with big plans for his business, but they weren't to be. Sad story.
