Ekco Radio Continued, Model U332  

U332. Usual four valve plus rectifier set using UCC85, UCH81, UF89, UABC80,  UL84, UY85. Interesting in as much that it was Ekco's receiver that followed the mid 1950's trend of producing receivers in pastel colours. This one is shown in sprayed baby blue. The base colour of the bakelite was brick red, and that appears to be the most common colour, presumably because there was no spraying cost involved.  The radio was designed to be moved easily, the picture below right shows that a "grab indent" has been formed into the card back of the receiver to facilitate easy pick up.
