So I ran down to Cedar Rapids yesterday after work to pick up a Radarange...two actually, but the second didn't pan out. However, it wasn't a total loss. I decided to hit up a couple thrift stores to kill some time and found this sealed LP celebrating the bicentennial...because nothing says Amana like Danny Davis and the Nashville Brass!

The backside (2nd pic) is the best...Men in lab coats inspect another RR-6W rolling down the conveyer belt, no doubt listening to Battle Hymn of the Republic through the in-house speaker system. I'm assuming that's a drop cord coming down from the ceiling, or maybe another magnetron has gone up in smoke.

Yes, Amana, a century old tradition of fine craftsmanship. Try our icemaker!

Good save, Cory! I love those ol' records that were 'sponsored by' some manufacturer or another. I've got a 1960 Steve & Eydie album sponsored by Silvikrin Shampoo - it's actually pretty good, too!

Now, let's hope you have a nice vintage hi-fi to play it on... LOL

It came with our 1977 RR-7A (I think that was the model) RadarRange.
It also came with the "browning skillet" which looked like Corning Ware with a different pattern which I also still have. It has a special coating on the outside bottom that heats up in the microwave.

I used to see this record all the time--but I had never actually bought or it or taken it if I traded or swapped it at a record store for something I'd brought in if there was nothing else there I really wanted but didn't want to take back what I'd brought to trade in...

Yeah, when I caught the cover I was hoping for an industrial musical, like GE's Songs to Sell By, but for 50 cents I couldn't pass up an LP with a Radarange as part of the artwork!

Besides, where else could you find lapels like that for fifty cents???

Love the tag-line for Amana's appliances on the back cover, their motto:


"It worked then... And it works today!"
