Mine was like this, but I think it was AM only. I still remember the smell of its leather case.
I liked to listen to "Lee Alan On the Horn", a very popular Detroit show that came on as I had to go to bed.
I'd listen under the covers using its single ear piece.

("Two speakers? Why would anyone want that?" asked the Fab Four when told about stereo.)

Say what you whale about the book (based on a true account Melville only "happened" across), but this show is fascinating:

It's easy to see why she graced WWII bombers and her pics were in barracks everywhere.

Today in 1977, NASA unveils a photo from the Viking probe, sent to Mars (and famously including a lander that photographed the surface landscape of Mars) to do intensive surveying.
 Obviously looking at this photo it’s easy to see why this attracted so many people’s attention, considering there’s a face right there!
The image is certainly compelling, and some people, such as Richard Hoagland  appear to have based most of their careers off of
promoting this image as evidence of life on Mars.  Who’s to say, really, although later and better photos seem to conclusively show
that this is a natural rock formation that only coincidentally appears to be a face.  

p.s if  Mr. Hoagland  would have only taken this shot 100 km to the west
 he would have "snapped" my Jr. High School! 
Better luck next time, I guess.

Federal employees work on flex time, which means they can start and finish their 8 hour day at the time they choose. My daughter works for the gov, and as far as I can tell, she works a full day, from 7:30-4(:30?)
