Solid State Stereophonic

It’s no secret that I go a bit crazy over vintage finds, I love things with a story to tell, so it would not be much of a surprise to see the look on my face when Simon bought home our new Record Player – an AWA Radiola from the 1950’s. It’s just gorgeous, and has the loveliest sound. We have spent the afternoon listening to hummy sounding Jazz and Glenn Miller soundtracks. When it comes to design, the 1950’s have it so very right, don’t you just love those legs?

    Oh my, that is amazing! We had one just like it when I was young. Where did you get it??

      isn’t it sweet! Op shop… they come into the shop fairly often but don’t last long as you can imagine, and this is probably the cutest one I’ve seen so far x

    That definitely has the 1950s, mid-century look, though anything with “Solid State” marked on the faceplate is likely from the 1960s or even 1970s. The first mass marketed all-solid-state “radiograms” we had here in the U.S. were from the Magnavox “Astro-Sonic” series which was first sold in 1963. That’s a nice piece and it must have been well made to last this long; I hope it keeps serving you well.
