A very cool radio

In the mid-1950’s, Philips introduced a refrigerator with a built-in radio. It was sold in Europe and as it ads proclaimed “even America does not know about it yet!”

Here is a French advertisement for the Radiofrigo.


Here are photos of the unit from an exhibit at Musee EDF Electropolis, Mulhouse in France:
