Crosley Companion Radio

Crosley Companion Radio

"Happy Days are Here Again" went the most popular tune of 1930, but for most Depression-era Americans, the sentiment amounted to wishful thinking. In 1932, Hoover was defeated by FDR by a landslide. After this runaway victory, it became apparent that FDR embodied an optimism and speaking voice that seemed tailor-made for radio. He delivered regular radio addresses to the nation known as "Fireside Chats." But FDR's chats weren' the only thing Americans were listening to. Americans were relying upon radio as their evening entertainment. The tunes and talk were enjoyed on radio sets just like Crosley's Companion. Careful attention to detail makes this mini, yet magnificent, Cathedral-style radio as authentic as the 1930's original.
