Sonora Radio

Chicago, Ilinois  [1913-1957] 

Sonora Radio Sonora Radio + Television Corp of Chicago, Illinois started off as a clock maker which somehow led to phonographs + finally to radios.  As radio manufacturers they made numerous style radios in wood, bakelite and one catalin model the Coronet KM.  The 1941 Coronet KM was available in 3 color combinations:  Alabaster/Onyx Green, Alabaster/Plum and Alabaster/Pastel Blue.  Today they are all quite difficult to find and are highly regarded by collectors.

Some Coronets were sold to Allied Radio Corp and branded "KNIGHT" with a gold foil logo affixed to the front of the cabinet.  These "Knight" branded radios are rarely found.
