We couldn’t resist this bit of fun – a marvelous novelty item from the obscure Japanese company Answer.
It was a tape recorder, record player and AM radio all in one, beautifully packaged into this silver and black hammer-tone case.
The phono arm and AM antenna plugged in to sockets on the case and the turntable platter sat atop and was driven by the left hand reel.
This particular example was brand new, still in the original wrapping and box.
Dimensions (approx.): 7½” (round) x 2½” (191 x 419 x 64mm) / half track mono
