The little pass switch on the panel board is the mag,ic wand that makes your home a stag,e of all the world. Throw the switch one way and the world’s greatest radio artists are yours to command on a six tube Kolster Radio Receiving, Set; throw it the other way and be entertained by your favorite artist or orchestral selection in record form on the Columbia Electric Viva-tonal Phonograph.
