Back to the Future

Our latest Roberts Radio restoration.  1970’s Solid State Portable RIC 2 Radio.  The sun came out and our attention moved to the great outdoors and what could be nicer than this mustard yellow radio to brighten our day.  And what does RIC stand for?  It’s an integrated circuit of course, containing no less than eleven transistors.  This radio could be connected to the car aerial or headphones.  It had all mod cons and originally cost the princely sum of £16.85, when a Mars Bar cost 2p and Rod Stewart began belting out “Maggie May”.  Back in the day,  Bell bottoms, platform shoes and hot pants became fashion staples and every day was a bad hair day.
