I was thinking it was a Radio Shack model.
To the OP: $59.95 for a clock radio! Little wonder, there isn't that many around!

I thought the same thing. 60 bucks in early 1950's dollars for a CLOCK RADIO was rather high. In todays dollars it would be $626.76. Wow.

I've got the middle one in the ad (the graduate), and it is indeed a garden variety AA5 chassis. Oddly enough, the chassis is mounted sideways with the bottom facing the front of the cabinet, that way the tuning knob connects straight thru the side without a dial string. Actually, it's a nice sounding radio for a plain-Jane set.

The clock radio to the left of it is built the same way.

Some of the Radio Shack worked well and good value for the money.

Its the same as a Sangean ATS 818. I have good luck with it. Shortwave is pretty decent after dark, and especially away from town.

That's an awesome looking clock radio. I actually once found a 1952 Zenith Bugeye AM/FM Clock Radio at Goodwill for $5 and it still worked pretty well yet.
