Andy Qunta… Yes, we had something like that! Spent untold hours with it!
Janine Anne Hemsley… Still use mine .
Dave Luck… Had one very similar, but with twin sliding door’s on the front, good old fashioned Radiogram.
Jim Breeds… Gosh, almost the identical model to the one Dad bought from Bryants! It was a Bush stereogram with a Garrard deck.
Kevin Burchett… I think Madeline Joyce Morton still has one of these she did last year anyway.
Madeline Joyce Morton… Still have one it is a Bush and still works

Lucy Pappas… We had one. I wonder what happened to it?
Steve Thorpe… Had one the same, could plug a cassette recorder into the back. Then we had an ITT Music Centre with meters for recording levels! Happy days 🙂
Andy Maby… My ‘posh’ Aunt and Uncle had one! I remember playing my cousin’s singles: ‘Venus’, Shocking Blue!!!
James Turner… Am I old, just taken this photo in my lounge.

Liz Dianto… My Grandparents had one, and it had a great sound
Terry Pack… We had a mono, valve driven one! Great sound.
Dave Luck… Found picture of my first radiogram given to me by my father, this one was made by Ferguson. This was then replaced by a Rigonda Bolshi Radiogram
supplied by Dave Luck

Nigel Ford… I remember Dad going off to Eastbourne to buy a RIGONDA Bolshoi so he could listen to a Mantovani LP that we bought him for Christmas, though he seldom did and I believe it was an old valve system that sounded great compared with our Dansette Tempo player… but what I really wanted to say was….Nice Bush Madeline….
Mike o Brien… Owned a good few radiograms in my time and stereo systems to boot!.In the early 70’s owned a brand new Rigonda Bolshoi radiogram (I loved it) cost £125.There was at the time so much on the market we were spoilt for choice,Dynatron radiograms were in their heyday then but very expensive I have owned several models over the years(second-hand) One of my favourites I bought brand new was a HMV Stereomaster radiogram the sound was incredible (bought 1971) and cost £64. I am in my early 60’s now and still love radiograms and vinyl.Another favourite brand was Grundig.I own today a Grundig balmoral radiogram (mono) from 1955 a stunning piece of kit I bought second hand last year for £50.It is in superb condition internally and externally,it boasts 3D sound and contains 5 speakers,Collaro RC54 record changer,I did replace the cartridge so it will play stereo records(although the output is Mono).I kept the original so I can still play 78’s.Also included in the price was a complete set of valves all brand new.It still picks up a few radio stations mainly on VHF(FM today).The previous late owner had lavished care and attention on it,and it looks as if came out of a showroom,so all in all a great buy!,especially as it is 60years old this year (I have all the original paperwork).
Alan Wadey… Yes I have one email me.
Jan Warren… OMG!! Mike mentioned “Rigonda”!! – I think they were a German make but our family had lots of mad parties in the 70s and we had lots of big Rigonda speakers to give us the loudest music possible, those speakers became “legendary” in our family, I think some of us have some still in use?!! haha, happy days!! 🙂
