This is the radio my dad bought when he came to the UK in 1962. It’s powered by #valves and still works, I managed to tune it to #AbsoluteRadio and #FleetwoodMac started playing. Bands available: #MW, #MSW (what?) #SW times three and an auxiliary input for tape. We had it repaired sometime in the mid-1980s, cost about £18, for new valves which were probably damaged while moving house. #MadeInEngland
