Panasonic RF-596 is almost perfect

My favorite radio is this Panasonic RF-596 manufactured back in 1978. It tunes like a champ, has wonderful sound, and the illuminated dial and LED tuning light make every monitoring session a visually dramatic experience. Its dial is slightly off and should be recalibrated, but I don’t want to risk surgery on this otherwise perfect little beauty.

What treasured yestertech do you own?
