Vintage radio sets are becoming increasingly popular with manufacturers reproducing models based on past century designs.  At Past Times Radio we offer you the opportunity to own the real thing !

Past Times Radio has been established since 1999.  We specialise in the restoration and sale of vintage valve and transistor radios made from 1930 through to 1980.  Be it wood, Bakelite, portable or floor standing you are sure to find something of interest here.  Once upon a time British companies such as Bush, Ekco and Marconi were market leaders in the world of wireless.  Sixty or so years later after a visit to our workshop these individual pieces of radio history are lovingly restored to their prime.   Even with the introduction of DAB radio in the UK the good news is that analogue FM and AM broadcasts are here to stay.

So if you are looking for that extra special gift or a stroll down memory lane, you've come to the right place.

We pride ourselves on giving a first class service to all our customers, with a no quibble money back guarantee.

All items are dispatched promptly by secure courier and are packed to our legendary standards so you can rely on receiving your chosen set when you want it.

This website is updated regularly with new items.  If you would like to receive an email notification when we do this update please send an email to our usual address.  If you don't find what you are looking for please contact us, we may be able to help.

January 2021 -  2020 can sod off!

Workshop open as usual.  Not much stock for sale right now but we are keeping busy with repair and restoration work.  Visitors by appointment only depending on the current restrictions for travel.  Happy to do a video call if you want to have a look at something in particular.

EU customers  - very pleased to have you!   Please contact for an exact shipping quote as many couriers this past week have been messing about with parcels.  Some are currently refusing collection from the UK to  EU destinations but this due to Covid-19 restrictions at ports rather than anything else.  Or so it would seemů 

Past Times Radio is also now active on Twitter  -  you might want to follow @pasttimesradio  -  In the future we will be using this for latest news and updates, as well as general radio chat and fun. 
All part of our new website which will go live soon.

Our repair service is as busy as ever with both transistor and valve based things. 

Of late we have been working again on valve guitar combo and head unit amplifiers.   My ears still work!   

We are proud to remind you that Roberts Radio made us their official recommended repair specialist several years ago for all of their back catalogue of classic analogue models.   This continues and shortly we will be launching a new dedicated Roberts repairs website. 
So if you have a Roberts Radio  that needs some TLC do get in touch.

We offer the same service of course for Hacker Radios, and most other quality vintage style portables.   B&O also repaired.

Please see the "Contact Past Times Radio" page for our address and other important details.
