    I can remember radios being like this when I was a child – when a radio was not just a piece of technology, it was a piece of furniture πŸ™‚

      And in some cases, only sole piece of entertainment, when TV wasn’t common.
      Thanks for checking out the post and commenting πŸ™‚

    Such a beautiful radio. Long back we had one big radio, I think it was GEC . We used to listen to so many programmes like Binaca Geet mala πŸ™‚

      Back in the 60s & 70s, my family too had such a radio. I didn’t saw that but it must have been like this. My mother sometimes tells me the stories of those days. What a time it was!

    This was such a great post. Made me feel as though I’d stepped back in time.
