Twilight Zone Second Season

"No one ever saw one quite like that, because that's a very special sort of radio. In its day, circa 1935, its type was one of the most elegant consoles on the market. Now, with its fabric-covered speakers, its peculiar yellow dial, its serrated knobs, it looks quaint and a little strange. Mr. Ed Lindsay is going to find out how strange very soon - when he tunes in to the Twilight Zone."

Ed Lindsay hates television, so he gets his old radio out of the basement of the boardinghouse where he lives. He soon finds he can receive programs from the past when he's alone. Vinnie Broun, an old maid he was once engaged to, believes he is imagining the whole thing. Vinnie gives the radio away to a junk dealer. Lindsay retrieves it, hoping it will still work. It does, and when he calls Vinnie into the room, it is a younger Vinnie that appears. It is 1940, and Lindsay, young again, has been given a second chance.

"Around and around she goes, and where she stops nobody knows. All Ed Lindsay knows is that he desperately wanted a second chance and he finally got it, through a strange and wonderful time machine called a radio... in the Twilight Zone."
