    Plaid Stallions Superhero AM Radios



    What was your AM Radio as a kid? Mine was "Little Sprout" from the "Green Giant" commercials, I assume my mother won it.


    It was pretty cool but my older sibling had an FM radio in her room, so i mainly just kept my door open so I could hear Black Sabbath.

    I’ve never seen either one until now. They’re really neat!

    I've never seen either one of those either, cool!

    I never had an AM radio at all when I was a kid, other than a small transistor radio. But luckily I got a sweet stereo system passed down to me by my uncle when I was around 11, so that made up for it.

    I had two AM radios as a kid. I've never seen those but I did have a Batman one. You're probably familiar with it-



    Sometime in the late 70's I picked this one up at a yard sale-



    As an adult, I have replaced both in my collection. The Panasonic sits in my bathroom so I can listen to the news as go through my morning beauty regiment.

    My brother and I had that Panasonic. I think they were blue and red.

    I still have my childhood Batman radio. It's in pretty good shape, minus one red knob. I don't recall listening to it much, but it was in my room for ever...and now it's in my living room!

    Thanks for posting this! I had forgotten about the Superman radio, but I know there is a cookie jar with a very similar design!
