Default Past Times Radio Doncaster.

HI just bought two radios from Past Times Radio, a Philips V5A and a Roberts P4D. Was nice to meet Richard and see some of the wonderful radios he has for sale and repair. Well worth a look on his website.

Kind regards, Bob.

I’ve had great service from Richard too. The sets are sensibly priced and well packed.

Morning.
Over the years I have been to Richard's and it's a pleasure to see him each time I go. He is always helpful, the first time I met him I needed a knob for a Saba radio so out comes Richard with a large box full of radio knobs and yes the one I needed was at the bottom of the box.

Just had a nice browse through his website, first time for me as I wasn't aware it existed.

Quite fancy the little Defiant radio for some reason.

He seems to be less widely known as the years have gone on. Maybe more competition from eBay etc?

I’ve bought about 4 or 5 sets from him over the years, and they’ve all arrived safely and been exactly as described.

Just bought an AVO testmeter from him, and he chucked in an old and somewhat sad looking AVO RF generator for another fiver.

I haven't bought any radios for a while, but have dealt with Richard several times in the past.

I can recommend him without any reservations, he's a true gent, and very accurate in describing, packing etc his sets. I have no reason at all to think you'd be disappointed. 100% rating from me.
