The Regency TR-1 Transistor Radio.“In 1954 Texas Instruments and Regency radio came together to create the first transistor radio to hit to market, The Regency TR-1. The TR-1 was not only popular for being the first widely sold transitorized radio, but the TR-1 was also connected to the Hollywood scene. Michael Todd, best known as Elizabeth Taylor’s former husband and for his production of Around the World in 80 Days, linked his name to this radio when he gave out the radio as gifts, which were housed in book-like cases, to commemorate his movie. These Michael Todd models are very rare and have been said to be given to people of importance, including members of his cast such as: Arthur Miller, Shirley MacLaine, Lou Berg, Bill Shawn, Frank Quinn and Ted Patrick.” (via)
