Vintage Sharp Radio

R340.00

I cannot tell you the number of vintage radios I’ve bought in the hope that they work, only to be disappointed! I’m won over by their good looks – and memories of my German grandfather, Fritz, listening to his black portable radio when I was a child – but invariably when I get them home, all excited, I find out quickly that they’re dead as a doornail! So I didn’t hold out too much hope for today’s Japanese-made Sharp ‘Gazelle’ portable, but was pleasantly surprised when I clicked the ‘on’ button and heard talking! Yay! It was especially surprising given that we live at the base of a giant ridge and so get really terrible reception! Not only did it work, but it was loud and clear! Double whoop! Obviously it has some signs of wear and tear (we sadly had to discard it’s removable case which was falling apart), and the carrying strap has long gone, but it’s still a very attractive radio – and most importantly it works like a dream!
