Now - A Transistor Wall
Transistor radios have
become increasingly popular because of their lightness and
portability. Now a new idea in transistor radio receivers is
introduced by Decca with a circular wall fixing model. Similar to a
clock in appearance it has a lever for volume control and push-buttons for
waveband selection. The radio has been tested for steam resistance
and its performance is said to be unimpaired whether used in the bedroom,
living room, kitchen or bathroom. Could this be the start of a new
trend in transistor radios?

Decca have produced a transistorized radio to go on the wall.
Designated model TPW70, the radio is round in shape. The radio fixes
on the wall in the same manner as an electric clock, by means of a wall
bracket. It is powered by a 6V PP1 battery. Wavebands 190-555m
and 1,140-2,000m. It has six transistors and a 5in. 25ohm elliptical
speaker. Overall dimensions: 10in. dia by 2in. deep. Price
