K.I.C. is an importer of transistor radios made in Japan and possibly other Far East locations.  Known Brands are Raleigh, Remington, and Kaytone.  K.I.C. may be an abbreviation for Kaysons Import Co. or Kaysons International Corp., but this is unproven.

Note that some Raleigh models have labels from Raleigh Electronics Corp.
