Murphy Radio started out in Hertfordshire, England, in 1929 when Frank Murphy and E.J. Power first began to manufacture home radio sets. The company grew to become one of the top six radio manufacturers in the world, and eventually began to supply radios to the British Army during the Second World War. After the war, Murphy used its military experience to continue to design and build sets for the British Navy. In 1948, they started to manufacture television sets but stopped production of both radios and televisions in 1964 when the decision was made to enter the electronic market. The name ‘Murphy’ has survived to the present day, but only as a licensee for Far Eastern electronics.
This AC mains receiver type TA366 Murphy radio has been designed for use on 90-250 V 50-100 AC with a maximum consumption of 60 watts. It would have been made some time in the 1940s, and even today combines beauty with functionality. It is still in great working condition for its age, and when you switch it on a dark winter’s evening a rich and warm orange glow still continues to light up the entire room, taking you back to World War II London when families huddled around it to follow wartime news bulletins and listen to Winston Churchill addressing the nation. The casing is slightly chipped but overall in good condition. All buttons and knobs are also fully functional and working smoothly.
