Hit or Miss: Decca Wall Radio
As transistor radios were becoming more and more popular it was up to the designers to think of new ways to sell radios. No longer were they limited by the bulk of valves and the possible need for mains electricity, the sky was the limit. So, you've already got a radio in your living room and car, so why not have one in the bathroom too? Released in November 1961. Hit or Miss, you tell me?
Now - A Transistor Wall Radio
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?
