Description : This radio is rectangular, with a wooden frame. The front face is indented, with beige and cream woven fabric covering the speakers. A gold-coloured, metal "window" is in the upper right-hand corner of the fabric covering the speakers. A glass front below the fabric displays a black background with green, yellow, orange and red markings showing radio bandwidths. Two large, plastic, cream-coloured knobs are on either side of the bandwidth markings. One knob is for tuning, the other for volume. Five cream-coloured buttons below the bandwidth markings control bass and treble. This is all surrounded by a light-coloured wooden frame. The wooden box that holds the radio is dark-coloured. Two wooden feet are attached to the bottom of the radio. These feet slant outwards towards the bottom, and have felt on their bottoms. The bottom of the radio is made of black plywood held on with screws. That back of the radio is also black plywood, and holes in it allow a view of the mechanisms inside. Black, pink, blue, and yellow wires come from the back of the radio and end in a four-pronged plug.
Commentaires : During the mid-twentieth century, the Department of Education broadcast educational programs, called School Broadcasts, several times per week. These programs usually taught social studies or health issues. This radio was used at the Durrell Academy so that students could listen to these programs. At the time when this radio would have been in use, kindergarten to grade 11 was taught at the Durrell Academy. After radios were introduced to Newfoundland, they became an important means of obtaining information, such as weather forecasts; even news about family and friends could be heard on the Gerald S. Doyle News Bulletin. Radios were often located in the kitchen of a home, which was the social centre of a home, and a place where news was shared.
Fonctions : This radio was used in the home, as well as in the Durrell Academy for broadcasting educational programs.
