The radio of the future is... a television? This 1942 ad for Admiral radios featured modernist designer Samuel A. Marx and his vision of a "radio of the future." Like most American visions of the future from the 1940s, this one is drenched in talk of war and what technological advancements are just around the corner; after the war.
