Your comments:

  • I have one, same year I was born and remember listening to Dan Dare on Radio Luxembourg and cricket on the Light Programme with my Dad. A great radio with a lovely tone.

  • This radio was designed by Eden Minns (who, along with R. D. Russell, was responsible for many of Murphy's strikingly modern cabinet designs). The A122 was one of the 'baffle' series - intended to combine pleasing styling with good acoustic properties. It has a four-valve circuit covering long, medium and short wavebands.
