A retro radio is one of the most ideal additions to any home. Stylish, invoking a 50s or 60s style, it's all part of the retro revival we've seen in home interiors in the past decade. But remember, we're not actually living in the past, so we can choose products that have the very latest tech, but evoke that nostalgic style.
DAB radios are the perfect choice. 50% of all radio listening in the UK is now on digital. And if radio lovers want to listen to the growing band of digital only radio stations, they need a DAB radio to indulge their hobby.
