    Adam Faith refers to him as a "big nit", but of course it's Adam doing the singing himself.

    Patricia Roc relies on pigeon post instead of transmitting by radio When the bough breaks in 1947:

    I was watching an episode of The Mind Of J.G.Reeder called The Shadow Man and was struck by how unusual the Wireless (as she called it) was with the sound device coming out of the top. It looked more like a Gramophone than a radio I was half expecting the HMV dog to be sitting beside the table. I wonder was this a real model as I'm sure it would be very collectable for arts sake.

    Bachelor of Hearts (1958), Hardy Kruger, is trying to study despite the presence of Ronald Lewis: hope the radio is not blaring!

    Frankie Howerd goes to switch off Malcolm Arnold's pop version of his main title music for The Great St. Trinian's Train Robbery (1966) as he arrives to find Jeremy Clyde and his daughter Maureen Crombie having a bit of fun:

    One of my favourite lines from the film soon follows:

    Jeremy: Just because I'm a trend setter!
    Frankie: You look more like a bleedin' irish setter to me.

    Looks like a decrepit model on the shelf behind fairly decrepit John Moore in his very decrepit café for druggies in SOFTLY SOFTLY TASK FORCE "Moving On":

    The radio that infuriates adrift Windbag the Sailor in 1936, but ultimately saves the lives of Will Hay, Moore Marriott and Graham Moffatt when they later encounter cannibals:

    No need to apologise, Gerald! Please continue posting any vintage radios you spot. I remain optimistic they will be identified eventually but am astounded at how elusive most of them are, despite my awareness of specialist sites like The Radio Attic (hundreds there) and trying various searches by brand name.

    I can't imagine finding that one either. It looks more like a Surrealist painting than a fireplace.

    With apologies to cornershop, this one needed to be added as it's quite unusual:

    We used to have a large radiogram, one of those free-standing bits of furniture with a radio and a record player in it.

    They appear in a few films.
