1945 Sonora Model RDU-209-229 Radio

The Sonora Radio Company began in 1908 as the Sonora Chime Company. The company patented a system of bells that were put into clocks. Later, the company went into the production of phonographs and radios and used the slogan "Clear As A Bell", a leftover from its chime production days. This particular six-tube super-Heterodyne radio is certainly "Clear As A Bell". With an attractive wooden cabinet, clear dial glass and bone colored knobs, it's a welcome addition to any radio collection.
