Analog Dial  


This is a radio-shaped Christmas tree ornament made by Hallmark in 2006. It was purchased from eBay in 2014.The seller said it had a working radio in it, and it would come with new batteries. I figured it contained some cheap single-chip FM radio, like you can get at the dollar store (or pound shop as some of you say). It turned out not to be the case. This ornament is way cooler than that!

See the video below. It is not "dubbed in." The sound is really coming from the ornament!


Notice I don't stay on one station too long. If you don't change the station, the radio will play to the end of the recording and power itself off. This is nice because you can walk up to it while it's on the tree, turn the knob and walk away.

It even has an analog dial!
