I live with a vintage wireless enthusiast. Wireless is completely the wrong word, because you have to plug it in! So Radio enthusiast! I thought I would have a guest writer - my husband!
Hi from the Husband. I have had a lifelong fondness for Ekco radios as my first job when leaving school in 1962 was on the assembly lines at their Southend-on-Sea factory. Rumours that this ultimately led to the closure of said factory in 1966, remain unsubstantiated! You can imagine however how good for quality control it was to have a line of workers comprised mostly of 15 year olds straight from School!
Ekco in its heyday of the 1930's was one of the major players in the manufacture and sale of Radio Sets and now commands some of the highest prices in the collecting field for its "round " or circular sets, the perennial favourite being the A22 of 1946 costing you around £700 for a nice example.
