This model of Philco Radio is known to collectors as the “Bing Crosby Special” because of a Philco ad featuring Bing Crosby with the set.

The front lid opens (it flips down) to receive a 10 or 12 inch 78 rpm record.  When the lid is closed the record begins to play.   It also shuts off automatically when the song is finished.

This was a very popular model in its time. So much so, in fact, that it remained in production through the 1948 season.  It originally sold for $59.95
