I wrote up a web page on the history of the All American 5ive AM MW radio. AA5 history These radios were sometimes called "AC/DC" sets, as they were hot chassis that could run off of AC mains or DC mains.

There's an Aussie rock band called "ACϟDC" that likely took their name from a derivative meaning of the term, one not associated with radios...
