    Rather different nostalgic memories came to mind when I read that (circa 1980s)


    Is this the version you remember? A VHF64?:

      I loved that old Bush, but after fiddling with the knob too often, Dad banned me from messing with his Hacker. I was still allowed to slap my platters on the Pye black box though, so it was all good. I was listening to the Test Transmissions before they launched Capital Radio, non-stop music with no DJs, it was like heaven.

        Cue a racist rant from Alf, despised by Rita, but added to by "innocent" Mrs. Hollingbery (Carmel McSharry).

          The pub radio is not on, so he can't hear the latest cricket score. I hope he doesn't intend to pay by cheque.

            This wireless from Somewhere on Leave (1943) looks more like an early television set:

                  His grandfather Felix Aylmer prefers the Home Service and the twittering of nightingales accompanied by cello , though Laurence Olivier can't fathom why.
