We took a dirty and damaged Ferguson Finesse radio from 1953 and brought it back to life. It’s had an electronic overhaul to get it working again and we’ve replaced the missing magic eye.
Now we’re left with a real dilemma. Despite our best efforts, we’ve had no success hunting down a replacement speaker cloth. None that would do the transformed radio justice. Do we leave well alone and accept that this sixty year old is a stunner and still in pretty good shape without a complete facelift, or do we compromise and go for straight, plain and wrinkle free?
