Most American households had only a radio for entertainment and news in the days before the advent of television. The living room had the large upright cabinet units, while smaller tabletop sets could be used in the bedrooms or kitchen. A little more unusual was the "medium" sized chairside radio. As the name implies, the radio sat next to your easy chair for easy operation. These were made in much smaller numbers, and are more difficult to find today. Ours is a Zenith model 6S-239, from 1938. The Zenith company made some of the finest American radios of the day, with full, rich sound. Our radio is in fine working condition, and an original finished cabinet. A unique feature of this set is the speaker baffle, which is mounted on the top side of the set, allowing the sound to escape through the sides. There are book case compartments on both sides. The radio plugs right in and lights up, a functional and beautiful piece of furniture!
