Vintage Cobra Radio

In cleaning out that old cabinet, I also found this radio.

This is the first portable radio that I remember having. Ran on a 9V battery, so you know it’s old since it seems like most later electronics always seemed to require two AA batteries.

I can remember sitting in the back of the van when I was a kid, one night on our way back home from somewhere, and listening to “Funkytown” by Lipps, Inc. That’s my longest lasting memory (and perhaps earliest?) of this radio.
