Remco & Rush

Rush Limbaugh was recently on William Shatner's 'Raw Nerve' show.  During the last segment Rush proudly pulled out his favorite childhood toy to show to Shatner and his audience.  This is a Remco Caravelle AM Radio Transmitter/Receiver.  Rush reminisced how he always wanted to be on the radio.  This was his Christmas present back in 1962.  Rush said that he would spin records and dj from his bedroom as his parents would listen from another room.  The radio worked on a single 9 volt battery and could broadcast up to 500 feet away.  I believe Rush's signal broadcasts a little further today.
