Brazil 2014 Dansette Radio Goooooooooooooal!

Dansette Companion for Brazil 2014   Goooooooal!

According to the BBC website:
“Football became a national phenomenon in Brazil in no small part because radio carried it all across this giant land. Radio made football glamorous and exciting to a Brazilian audience, and gave it much of its language.”

This 60s Dansette Companion has been refinished in Brazilian colours and fitted with an iPod input. An ideal companion for the football commentaries?

Banksy and Olufsen Radio?

Banksy and Olufsen Radio?

I’ve always been a sucker for puns, so I couldn’t resist making this. A work in progress but the radio was in a poor state and the panels did need a complete respray. What do you think? Should I keep it like this or make like Transport for London and paint over it – as they did with the original.

Bang and Olufsen Beolit 600

Bang and Olufsen Beolit 600

This Bang and Olufsen Beolit 600 is a seventies design classic from the Danish designer Jacob Jensen. With its brushed aluminium sides and top and curry coloured panels (very 70s) it is a highly collectable radio. As an added bonus B&O fitted an input socket, originally for a record player. Or maybe those geniuses of audio design anticipated the rise of the iPod? See it at
