I’ve been hard at work in the Revived Radios workshop producing some craftily, customised, christmas-coloured (ok that’s enough alliteration) Roberts Radios. One in a gorgeous red and green, genuine Harris Tweed from the Shawbost mill on the Isle of Harris and one in rare sweetheart rose oilcloth from Cath Kidston. Both radios are fully refurbished and guaranteed and come in a Revived Radios gift box. They make a unique christmas gift. Even the person who has everything won’t have one of these!

We have recently refurbished two original analogue Roberts Revival radios. Roberts were inspired to create this model by the demand created when a vintage Roberts radio was featured in an 80s Martini advert. These were some of the last Roberts Radios to bear the ‘Made in England’ label and were upholstered in much more durable coverings than the later Roberts Revivals. One is in a ravishing, red Rexine cover and one in beautiful blue, genuine leather. After a full check up (with any dodgy parts replaced) and a good clean and polish they are looking as good as when they left the Roberts’ Factory in East Mosley. See them and our other re-covered and refurbished radios at www.revivedradios.com
At Revived Radios we were recently asked to produce a custom radio for the retirement of their CEO Kevin Cahill. We were happy to do this and it looks like Kevin was happy with the result. Happy Retirement!
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? www.revivedradios.com
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 www.revivedradios.com
