How To Build A Cuckoo Bird
On the back of a 1966 box of Cocoa Puffs was this wacky, backwards picture. But cut it out, do a little creative folding and you’ve got Sonny the Cuckoo Bird — he’s cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!
In 1925, the Atwater Kent Manufacturing Company became the largest maker of radios in the United States. The company also sponsored the popular “Atwater Kent Hour,” a top-rated radio concert music program heard on NBC and CBS from 1926 to 1934. The show featured top entertainment and became one of the most popular and acclaimed regular radio programs of the era.
At its peak in 1929, the company employed over 12,000 workers manufacturing nearly one million radio sets. The plant itself was an architectural sensation and received hundreds of visitors annually. By 1931, the company boasted that it had produced over three million radios.
Atwater Kent radios were of high quality and many examples of working models exist today. They are highly prized by collectors and restorers. Cabinets were made by the Red Lion and Pooley furniture companies for Atwater Kent and exhibited attractive woodworking designs. Some models so closely resembled contemporary furniture that they did not appear to be radios. One example was a radio inside a grandfather clock. (Wikipedia)
