Vintage Radio UK Style


Please note new address :-


As a small boy in the late 1920`s I was fascinated by the radios ("wireless") of the period with their rectangular oak cabinets, complete with lift up lid displaying mysterious contents. Later, as a schoolboy in the 1930`s, I made many"wireless"using some of the vast quantity of second hand parts that became cheaply available as the DIY boom faded with the arrival of more commercial sets and the "screwdriver and pliers"man ceased to be able to deal with the increasing complexity.
This small site arises from my nostalgic recollections of those departed days,together with a recent opportunity to obtain sufficient components from that period to make some restoration possible.
