Mark spots a vintage radio in “Travelers”

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Mark Hirst, who adds the following to our growing archive of radios in film. Mark writes:

I’d spotted this radio in the Netflix time travelling series Travelers early on, but it was never in focus to nail a decent image.

In spite of that, it does have a distinctive design that SWLing readers might recognise.

Sitting in the book case next to the stacked books, I’m guessing it’s ornamental rather than functional.

Mark, you obviously have a knack for detecting radios in film!  Thank you for sharing!

Post readers: Can anyone ID this radio?  I love the design–guessing it’s a Bakelite chassis?

Spread the radio love

    It looks like a Northern Electric, and if so, does have a Bakelite chassis. I recognize as my family had one of these while I was growing up in the 50’s & 60’s. I also remember it had a ‘hot’ ground & if you touched the wrong places, one got a nasty shock – the perfect intro to a life-long hobby
