A Old & Out of Order Receiver

The above photographs are of a Old also now going out of order, Philips Receiver of one of my uncle who bought it perhaps in late 1970s a few months after he joined  a state government job in Assam.He used to listen mainly news regulary at the top volume so that others also could listen it.And I also listened numerous  hours of radio programing  via it  wayback in late 1980s & 1990-1991 period specially at night & early morning hours when he was out of station.I still remember listening to Voice of America Programing specially News & News related programs, BBC World Service & above all numerous hours of BBC Cricket Test Match Special besides our All India Radio-Guwahati programs on medium wave.It was working more or less satisfactory until one and half year back.Though he visited local electronic shop for repair but they replied parts were not available .He was sad as if he lost a closed  friend..... he lost his long time talking ,news giving companion.....And he is still keeping this receiver at his home as a personal memory.

Thanking You
