A lovely radio at a local Sue Ryder Sale

I saw this lovely suitcase style radio at the Sue Ryder Sale at Nettlebed on Saturday. Only £20, but out of my pocket on that day……………….. I returned with a Sony Radio Cassette with CD Player and mega bass for £1. I got it knocked down from £3 as well, cassette unit does not work.  A Technika, cheaper smaller unit cost £5 secondhand.  The Sony radio cassette, cd player works very well indeed but is slightly scratched in places.  Sadly my LG Dab, fm and am radio cassette cd player has had to be binned, the mains input has gone and cannot be repaired.  No worries about DAB in the Thames Valley, signal is very bad, especially on the BBC multiplex where I live!

I have searched briefly on-line and found very little out about the set other than is was made in the 1950s and is referred to as a “handbag radio”.    It did go for £10 on eBay, and their model below looks in better condition.

If the picture above disappears it is due to eBay deleting the entry.
