Notes

Vision Electronics Midnight Owl;
Designed as creme colored owl, their eyes are used as tuning and volume controls, gold anodized aluminum wings. The "Midnight Owl" is like Bubo from Clash of the Titans, an American 1981 fantasy–adventure film involving the Greek hero Perseus. It was released on June 12, 1981 and earned a gross profit of $41 million domestically, on a $15 million budget. A novelization of the film by Alan Dean Foster was published in 1981. Warner Bros. released a remake of the film in 3D on April 2, 2010. But this radio has been made more than a decade before this film. It could be a Fred Roberts item, made in Japan, sold by Sears, Roebuck.
