    This is going way, way back--even before my time. Still if you like watching old shows like Father Knows Best on Netflix, take a look at Episode 21 in Season 3. Bud gets his hands on a Zenith Transoceanic, and the episode really is about the radio and the family's use of it. It doesn't just show up as a prop in a couple of scenes.

    I barely remember seeing that episode when I was a kid. I just watched it again (thanks) on Netflix!
    Amazing to be setting here on the edge of my seat while the "Betty Ann" was in distress! I'm glad Netflix
    and others like it have these old shows to enjoy again!
    Thanks for posting this.

    Oh, I always wanted a Zenith Transoceanic when I was a kid. Never got one. BUT, I did end up getting
    a Hallicrafter SX-96 from a TV shop I worked in (after school )when I was 16. I had to clean out the storeroom
    and repair the radio. But, it was worth the effort. Lots of visits to far away places and other interesting things.
    (in my mind of course)

    It's on Netflix, you need a subscription to use it. There are probably other sites as well that have
    "Father Knows Best" episodes as well.

    I just finished watching it, as well, on NetFlix. Thanks for the heads up.
    I just saw a Zenith Transoceanic for sale at a hamfest in NJ. I thought about it. But, didn't pick it up. I should have. Cosmetically, it was very nice. Not sure electrically.

    If you ever see "Ray" with Jamie Fox as Ray Charles,in one scene when they are home on the left side of the living room you can see a model#664 Zenith radio/phono in the background. We used to have one just like it.
