Crystal Radio

Description

Donor, Charles E. Tanner, purchased this crystal radio from the base exchange while attending basic training in 1957 at Lackland AFB, Texas.

The trainees were not allowed to have radios at first but were eventually permitted to buy these small crystal radios to listen to in the evenings.
