Radio days: "Radiola"

Thanks so much for the 7,000 views!




The image is dedicated to my true-blue Flickr friend, _davidh_. Thank you for your wonderful testimonial, Dave, and unwavering encouragement and support!


Dave loves experimenting with new techniques and themes and his work always has a clever, original and often humerous slant. I recommend you check out his photostream:


AWA is a legend in Australia - virtually every home in Australia had an AWA radio and television at one time. As I often call David a legend, this seemed like an appropriate image to choose as a tribute to him. It is not meant to be indicative of your vintage, Dave, but if the cap fits - wear it :-D




AWA (Amalgamated Wireless Australasia) sold their first "Radiola" home radio receivers in 1924. The model in my collection is circa. 1950, probably 1955. It is a four valve mantle set in a cream bakelite case, and still works like a charm after all these years.
