Wilcox-Gay Recordio, sometimes referred to as a Recordio-Gram Machine; this is a great unit for restoration.
78 speed only, record player works but the radio does not, it needs a special cutter for recording records and a microphone.

Wilcox-Gay ( a Charlotte MI company) began producing these units in 1939 and went out of business in 1963.
This unit was manufactured in the late 30's or early 40's.
Essentially, this is a tube powered radio/turntable, that also has the capability to cut special records called "Recordio Discs" which several are included.
The unit was designed for people to record voice messages which could be sent via mail to a recipient.
