Me and My Radio
Pictures of Simon's listeners with their radios to mark the BBC's 90th birthday in 2012.
My radio is my room, it fills it up with all the other people in the world and I can never feel lonely when I have it turned on
Me and My Radio in 1961 and now in 2012. The radio has not changed and still works, however I have changed and stopped working.

This is me and my old portable valve radio, can’t receive Radio 2 as only MW and LW. I recreated the original advert's photo!

The 'wireless' that belonged to my grandparents - it has many memories for me and I'm really proud to have been given it.
Fred and his Radio, special to him because it was given to him by a dear old gentleman named Richard who died age 96 in 2002.

This is a photo of our frog waterproof radio which we listen to in the bathroom. He's called 'Freddy'.

My trusty old 1956 Philips B5X63A Bi-Ampli radio. This model was specially made as a present for Philips employees in Holland.
I live in Berlin - there's nothing like Radio 2. My contact with home is internet radio streamed through a tablet.
On holiday in North Wales in 1962 listening with my dad and sisters. Our Radio has always been part of our family!
Here I am in my shop listening to your show - the radio behind me is 80 years old this year and still going strong!
Me and my 1955 KB radiogram that was brought from Chester to southern France. It's been fully repaired and works beautifully!
Me and our ancient PYE valve radio. It takes a while to warm up, but reminds me good things are sometimes worth waiting for!
