1970s Roberts R606-MB Portable Radio Three Waveband MW/LW/FM

This 1970s Roberts R606-MB Portable Radio Three Waveband MW/LW/FM has recently been fully checked, serviced, cleaned and polished. It is complete, and the tatty leatherette fabric has been professionally replaced with a very ‘on trend’ duck egg blue check, with a matching duck egg blue leather trim.
In very good cosmetic condition, with a few small blemishes on the teak sides. The chrome grille, volume and tuning dials have some surface scuffs; the push buttons are in very good condition. This would make a great vintage radio for a seaside cottage or any room with a duck egg blue theme!


The Roberts R606-MB is a 3 waveband radio (MW/LW/FM)

  • Switchable AFC provides accurate tuning and good station locking on FM.
  • Red movable Station Markers
