solid state digimatic

I’m always noticing peripheral things.

While watching a 1972 episode of the TV series Columbo, I saw this “Solid State Digimatic” on a nightstand. That would mean it’s a Sony, but the name is not visible on the plastic front due to the camera.

It’s an AM/FM number-flipping clock radio. I loved those things and thought they were swank. The design is elegant.

To the right of the minutes, there was a colored flywheel so you could be sure it was running.

  1. That’s the kind of background information I love.

    I haven’t seen Colombo for a while, although Peter Falk’s funny acceptance speech on YouTube entertained me at Christmas.
