The old Transistor in our kitchen plays merrily every morning, it has no Digital Audio Broadcast, but does have a lovely tone !
My book entitled, Looe in Cornwall a photographic tour, is on sale now.
A classic Bush Radio if I'm not mistaken. Brings back my youth...sigh. Nice detail shot

@grouser: It's the big Bush dial ;)
Great details and a W&B really well processed ! Love the angle and the lightning !

A beautiful shot of this well-kept nice old radio (an original from the 1960s?)

@MadScientist: Of course :0
A fine close up of this classy looking radio. Nice angle and processing to come up with a fine shot like this.

Beautiful frame . Enjoy this lovely music :)

Yeah, I remember when the quality of the radio was in the number of transistors it contained... great shot.

@Earnest: That's true Earnest, 10 transistors, 30 transistors or more. Then we had, ALL TRANSISTOR and Solid State. We've come a long way.
a nice frame on retro old posts!

Lovely retro radio ! Fits well my car ! :-)

@Florence: Rock & Roll... let's go for a drive :D
There's a lot to be said for the classic designs of a past era. I'm up there with the latest digital technology on so many levels, not least my stereo which has six speakers, gold plated banana plugs, double wired high power leads and a host of gizmos that spellbind everyone who comes to my house and hears thier favourite track at studio quality..... and yet, when I'm washing my car, it's an old transistor radio that pleases my ears.
Great shot, Michael. Quality in those mono pixels and happy memories.

@SOUL AFLAME: I'm up there with you Paul, having myself also the gold banana plugs, and binding posts on my Tannoy floor standing speakers with Van den Hul shielded cables and a system that plays my classical discs with the purest hifi quality. I once had a Tandberg system made in real wood, with a beautiful Blue illuminated frequency scale and polished steel switches...... how times change.
Oldie's but goldie's :)
It looks as new! Great picture!

Love old kit like that . . needs a Ford Consul on the drive for the start of a perfect day !
21 Mar 2010 8:09pm
@Ronnie 2¢: Yeah, or a Vauxhall Cresta :)
Excellent retro shot! I can hear the old tunes coming from it!

This is the BBC Home Service - and now we go over to radio's favorite ventriloquist act, Peter Brough & Archie Andrews...
"Go on, put the knife, put the knife in, I won't tell."
What you describe is a mish mash of the 2 plots from Dead Of Night & Magic. In the former the vent is Michael Redgrave, in the latter, Anthony Hopkins.

@Zorilla: Ah, the Home service, Light, and Third, soft mellow tones that a nation depended on.
Regarding the ventriloquist... I have never seen either of those films, 'put the knife in I won't tell' just came into my head. Call me paranoid, but maybe that dummy is controlling me :0
A lovely design. Very nicely captured Mike.

A beautiful image again, we have a very nice atmosphere here.

An iconic make Pye? Where have all those radio station names gone on the old medium wave (and long and short)
23 Mar 2010 1:57pm
Oh I listened to a row brewing on Radio 2 just yesterday about the switch over to DAB, the nation is divided! My love of technology is at odd with my love of old stuff, I digress, it a lovely frame and makes me want to tune in to Lazer 558 :)
23 Mar 2010 8:18pm
@Craig@Random Ramblings: I wonder why they are divided, good quality FM is superior to DAB.
23 Mar 2010 8:24pm
What a beautiful old classic. It even has "fresh" on the dial it seems. That must be a good station.
24 Mar 2010 4:21pm
@Steve Rice: Don't listen too long to Fresh, it's been known to send folks crazy :0
