In British English, a radiogram is a piece of furniture that combines a radio and a record.
The word radiogram is a radio and gramophone suitcase. The corresponding term in American English is console.
The radiograms have reached their peak in the post-war period, supported by an increasing interest in the discs. Originally, they were made of polished wood to blend with the furniture of the 1930s, many of which were designed by the greatest designers of the time. Expected entertainment instrument for the house, equipped with a speaker larger than domestic radio, the radiogram quickly started to develop features such as the automatic disc change, which accepted six or seven records and played them one after another. Certain records could be ordered in the form of a box which would combine the part recorded in order, to adapt to an automatic changer configuration. In the 1940s and 1950s, sales of the radiogram, associated with the new FM wave band, and the advent of the 45 -round single and the LP disc, meant that many manufacturers considered the radiogram as more important than the emerging sales of televisions. Subsequent models have taken over modern lines, the brilliant piano finish and plastic and golden garnishes from the 1960s. Stereograms versions have become available to take advantage of stereo recordings. As the tape formats gained popularity, some subsequent models also incorporated coil strip turntables, cassette decks or 8 -track band players, or the possibility of connecting external tape decks .
While the development of radio in Valve ended in the late 1960s and transistors began to take over, the radiograms began to become obsolete. In the late 1970s, they had been replaced by more compact equipment, such as the Hi-Fi channel and the music center.
Since the radiograms have been made in such large numbers, they are not as rare or precious as televisions or table radios of the same period. An exception to this are the models of certain manufacturers who have become collectibles such as Hacker Radio LTD. , Dynamon, Blaupunkt, Braun and Saba.
