Objects Of Design #165: Roberts Revival Radio

A more traditional way of listening to music in the bathroom

You, of course, may wish to have wireless surround sound in your bathrooms. I, on the other hand, am strictly Radio 4 when it comes to my ablutions and for that you need one of these. It just doesn’t sound the same otherwise. It is a design classic  modelled on a handbag (yes really) and I really want one. My Grandmother had one that span round on its base to pick up the sound better but after she died it never worked again. This version comes in several different colours but I’m a purist and I like white. £160
