The wonderful world of vintage radios has afforded us the privilege of being connected, albeit tenuously, to some fascinating people. The smallest of radios has introduced us to the works of two talented folk. Artist Fiona Charis Carswell was on the hunt for a vintage radio to use in her studio. Our emailing to and fro led us not only to Fiona’s heart-lifting work …
… but also to the work of her equally talented brother Hugh who creates beautiful music in an ancient cottage on the Isle of Jura.
In turn we were able to introduce her to a Roberts R300 originally built in 1964. I can’t think of a better home for a vintage radio than an artist’s studio.
Except perhaps a cottage on the isle of Jura.
