Early '70s Transistor Radios

Michael Jack, who's a recording engineer and producer in Toronto, has a world class transistor radio collection including plenty of vintage early '70s specimens. Although I don't talk much about the technology of radio in my book, I couldn't resist getting in touch with him about some of the models I remember, such as the Panasonic "Toot-A-Loop" (that's what the first two in this gallery are), and he was kind enough to send me some photos. You can sample the full enormity of the Michael Jack collection through his Flickr page.
