Offered here from my personal collection is this nice Sony TR-817 shirt pocket-sized radio from 1962.  This 8 transistor powerhouse was designed to pull in those distant stations and even has a tuning meter to help pinpoint the best reception.  The classic design of this radio features three port-hole windows:  one for on/off indicator, one for tuning, and the center one for the tuning meter.  The large grill area has several fragile fins that are often dented, but not on this one. The performance is great from a common 9 volt battery.   Have a listen below:
