"Happy Days are Here Again" went the most popular tune of 1930, but for most Depression-era Americans, the sentiment amounted to wishful thinking. In 1932, Hoover was defeated by FDR by a landslide. After this runaway victory, it became apparent that FDR embodied an optimism and speaking voice that seemed tailor-made for radio. He delivered regular radio addresses to the nation known as "Fireside Chats." But FDR's chats weren' the only thing Americans were listening to. Americans were relying upon radio as their evening entertainment. The tunes and talk were enjoyed on radio sets just like Crosley's Companion. Careful attention to detail makes this mini, yet magnificent, Cathedral-style radio as authentic as the 1930's original.
In 1920 Powel Crosley founded the company that pioneered radio broadcasting and mass market manufacturing around the world. Dismayed with the $130 price tag for the radio receiver he promised to buy for his son’s birthday, Crosley decided to make his own. Upon successfully building a working set for only $35, Crosley was quick to spot the mass market potential. It was a simple idea - design a fully functioning radio, meticulously craft each unit with obsessive detail and precise accuracy, and of course add a measure of consideration for the wallet.
Today the Crosley name lives on with superbly detailed replicas that truly transcend time. Reintroductions of original vintage radios and turntables feature the newest technologies graced by unforgettable Crosley stylings. The Crosley Collection includes AM/FM radios, portable suitcase - styled record players and turntables, record changers, multi- functional audio cassette/compact disc players, jukeboxes, music boxes, telephones and more. Rich lines, retro designs and authentic crafting have made Crosley today’s premier vintage electronics manufacturer. True to the Crosley tradition, these replicas are as fabulous as they are functional, providing a delightful dose of nostalgia.
