No, this is not gobbledygook. It makes eminent sense. I wanted a radio whose quality was akin to that of a legendary ‘Grundig’, but I was happy if it wasn’t German! I do my best to avoid German products — especially bloody German cars. Why? Very simple. Others may have, BUT I have yet to forgive them for BOMBING my beloved England. Yep. Yes, the Japanese bombed Ceylon once — but, as far as I am concerned, WE the Allies exacted our retribution on them. Anywho … I am just glad that I was able to get an American designed, Chinese built radio that is purpoted to be as good as a Grundig — without it actually being a Grundig.

Growing up in Ceylon, before I witnessed, with my own two-eyes the damage that the bloody Germans had wreaked on Liverpool, I was into Grundig radios — both desktop and portable. We didn’t have TV. Just radio. Though there was a paucity of imported goods we did have a smattering of Grundigs. Grundigs were good.

I had NO idea that Grundig had gone ‘kaput’ in 2003. I didn’t realize that German companies went kaput. Well they did. ‘Grundig’ is now just a brand name used by others.

Eton has bought the U.S. rights for the name. The radio is not German. It is not bad. I have only used it for less than 30-minutes, but so far, so good.

For the last 10-months I have started listening to the radio during my 2-hours a day of walking/light jogging. Helps me deal with the time.

Learnt a lot about portable radios in the last few days. Suffice to say the Chinese are BIG. Yes, Sony has presence and products but the Chinese are eating their lunch.
