What was broadcast in 1957?


Listen to "Ha tudnék szeretni" sung by Erzsi Kovács with the MHV Dance Orchestra, recorded in 1957

There are two antenna connections: left "without filter", right "with filter". Text on the sticker: "The mains plug has to be removed from the socket before removing the back panel. Touching the chassis can be hazardous. The radio must be protected from moisture!"
A slide strip below the antenna connections can be used to switch on a rejection filter.
