The radio is a Magnavox Celestial model FM-97, and is a four band, battery operated transistor radio with dual telescoping
antennas. In my opinion, it would have made a better radio that the Packard Bell as it has AM, FM and two bands of Short wave.
There is another version of the Magnavox similar to the FM-97 and is called the Magnavox Constellation model FM-95/FM-96
and is a three band radio that looks exactly like the FM-97 except the grill work is silver rather than black and has only three bands
rather than four.
So if youíre ever asked what the FIRST radio used by the cast was, you can now tell them! (Michael Sohnly)
