The 50s. A New Style in Radio


Hot off the workbench a 1950s Philips Table Radio.  If it’s the era of the fifties that float your boat, this could be the one for you.  This bakelite beauty represented a complete change in styling for Philips Radio.  The purists among you might notice the knobs aren’t original. We now have a dilemma.  Original knobs that don’t fit properly or new knobs that do their job?  This argument could run and run.  We’ll leave it up to whoever buys it.  That’ll keep the customer satisfied.  If I knew how to, I would put a link to a song.

    Ah, his is the one my parents had/have. When I was small I used to put little stickers on the glass front to mark stations I’d discovered and liked.

      I’m on the lookout for photos of radios when they were originally used, so if you have any please share.

    I’am looking for a 1950’S puppy radio. All I know is it is a schnauzer pup with a red ribbon.And a radio inside it.

      Hi Laura, have never seen one but will keep our eyes peeled. We like a mission.
