Default Panasonic Radio

Found this at work looks like its been sleeping for many years.
In good condition should clean up nicely, just needs a new whip aerial.
I gave it a quick power on and as I expected all the controls crackle but it seems to pick up stations.
I think mid 1980s, seem to remember seeing these.

Default Re: Panasonic Radio

You are very lucky if the tape works ok. Most belts have turned to a black sticky mess, but I believe some manufactures were not affected, Philips being one of the worst.
