Other Stuff: K-Mart SD-5 Radio

This radio came to me as a part of the "big score". I figured it was an old beat up transistor radio from K-Mart when I saw the box:

Of course it was interesting to have the box, and see how much it cost ($4.66) in whatever year it was made. However, when I opened the box, I was surprised to see this:

The radio was unopened, still in its plastic wrap. It's never been used. The batteries which came with it are still there, albeit a little rough looking. There's an earphone stuck under the batteries, as well. What a neat find - an unused transistor radio! I'm tempted to test it out...not!
