6 Of The Best Retro DAB Radios That'll Take You Back In Time


We’re all used to wearing vintage fashion, but recently it’s mid-century interiors which are all the rage.

From teak sideboards to velvet sofas, the past is most definitely in the present – but all these tech gadgets can end up look quite alien alongside it all.

That’s why we think retro radios – DAB ones, because we aren’t actually living in the 50s or 60s – are perfect for most homes. Whether that’s to be used when dancing around the kitchen while cooking or to switch on while having a lie in on the weekend.

    This is the Ferrari of retro radios – it's available in a range of colours, but we love this bright teal colour the best. There's a lot we love – particularly the amber backlight and adjustable brightness, so you won't be having to deal with bright blue light shining in your bedroom at night.

    We love this stylish wood finish. The 'RotoDial' controller on the top makes it easy-to-use, even for techphobes.

    R1 Deluxe Bluetooth Radio, Ruark, £219.99
  • Cult classic

    We particularly love the charming analogue dial on this radio. What's more: it's portable, has 20 preset radio stations and its alarm has a snooze button. Result.

    Akai, Curry's, £49.99
  • Dotty delight

    Emma Bridgewater
    In the classic Emma Bridgewater spot print, this would look great in the kitchen – especially if you've got the mugs to match. We love the 5 watt speaker and it has bluetooth connection.

    Bush Classic
    If you want a fully retro look, try this ultra minimalist radio. The lack of digital screen makes it look even more authentic and it's teeny at just 13.5cm x 13 x 9cm, which is perfect for little spaces.

    This has got everything you need: a dual alarm system and bluetooth. And we love the brown strap against the cream on this.
