Cossor Model CR4212A



 I can't say much about this radio except it's my wife's favourite. It works OK and has two loudspeakers although made before stereo radio became the norm. I haven't opened it up to examine its innards because it was always being used or I didn't have the inclination. Its got a magic eye which I think was a marvellous invention although most of those still extant have faded from their original rich green colour. I recall they were used, not so much for tuning, but for deciding on the best orientation of your long-wire aerial. With strong AGC you couldn't easily tell how relatively well your radio performed when fiddling with the aerial. With the magic eye you could even get the green bits to overlap with really strong signals from really long bits of wire.

Its just OK for Classic FM, tuning 88-100MHz.
