Hey Thomas,

Interesting little tidbit.

Noticed a Sony CRF-320 being used as prop in a 1982 episode of “Taxi” (Season 4 Episode 11), See captured enhanced attached photo [above].

“I Wanna Be Around” : Louie turns the tool room into a survival shelter.

YouTube (marked at a point where shortwave was made comment to) :

Look for it just left of the CB and desk microphone.

Thank you for sharing this, Dave! Wow! What a classy radio to have as a prop on display in Taxi! Great catch!

Spread the radio love

    Some studio exec bought a new radio and by using it as a prop gained a tax write-off on the purchase price.

    and the desk microphone was a Shure 444 which I owned and used several years ago, a pretty darn good desk mic, I’ll add 😀 if you need a robust and good mic for your rig, and find one of those in good conditions and with the original mic capsule, go for it !
