A lot of people ask us at our shows about converting a vintage radio which belonged to their parents or grandparents. We are happy to do this and have done many in the past.
If you want a conversion carried out we can convert your radio in one of 3 ways:
- Bluetooth only
- Wired only
- Bluetooth with Aux in
If you are interested in having a conversion carried out you can bring your radio to one of the shows we are attending where we can assess its viability. Alternatively send us detailed pictures and we can let you know if conversion is possible.
A standard conversion starts at £80 but the final cost will depend on the following:
- the size of your radio – if it is very small it maybe too difficult to get the extra tech inside
- whether the speaker still works or is unusable – we can replace the speaker with a suitable alternative if it is torn but most of the time the original speaker is usable
- whether you want the exterior cleaned/ restored.
Once converted the radio will be able to connect to any portable music player including iPad, tablet, smartphone or any other Bluetooth device including Amazon Echo. It will no longer work as a conventional radio, though you will be able to stream digital radio through your phone or tablet using an app such as iplayer or BBC sounds.
