Our latest find.  1963 Kolster Brandes Rhapsody De Luxe Portable Valve Radio which featured in Alicia Keys music video “Girl On Fire”.



In 1963 you would definitely have needed a portable radio.  The nation was waiting for news of the Profumo Affair, the Great Train Robbery and the assassination of John F Kennedy and The Beatles released their first album “Please Please Me”, followed by a string of Number One hits with “From Me To You” , “She Loves You” and “I want to Hold Your Hand”.
