Realizing he could sell more radios by providing quality entertainment, Crosley developed WLW, the world's most powerful radio station. It's rumored that the station could be heard at times as far away as Australia. Crosley's station broadcast a gamut of programming but reached its 500,000-watt peak in 1932 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt first flipped the gold plated switch from the White House to transmit his Fireside Chats. At that time, the impressive Turntable Console CD was a common fixture in homes nationwide. As American as baseball and root beer floats, this furniture styled piece was as functional as it was fabulous. Crosley's Turntable Console is handcrafted of solid hardwoods and veneers and is true renowned design is true to tradition with an AM/FM radio and three speed turntable discreetly hidden under the hinge top lid, yet adds a dose of modern technology with a fully functioning CD player.
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.
