Now Roberts, purveyor of traditional radios to Her Majesty, has decided to revive the 80s with its Sound 80 DAB/FM radio.
It will, apparently, "transport you back to the 1980s with its fabulous retro styling" and deliver "superb sound" from its three-way speaker system with bass woofer. We're coming over all Ashes to Ashes already.
