Lens on History: You know it's portable — there's a handle!
Say hello to the state of the art in portable music systems for 1958! You know it's portable; there's a handle on the side!
Built by Telex right here in Rochester, this model has all the latest features. Using 45 rpm records with the automatic record changer, you can make stacks of wax that will keep the music going for at least 15 minutes. A stack of LP records provides music for almost an hour. Of course, dirty dancing might cause the record to skip.
You didn't lug a 25-pound box of records to the party? Not a problem. With the built-in AM/FM radio, you can listen to KLEE or KROC until they sign off at midnight. Then, with the help of the powerful antenna, you can tune into "Wee-Gee" in the Cities, or, on a "good" night, listen to 89 WLS Chicago.
