Ringo Starr’s radiogram is to go under the hammer as part of a Beatles auction.
The custom built radiogram was built for Ringo and Maureen Starr when they lived at 34 Montagu Square, London in 1965. It is a quality piece with a Garrad Record deck, Leak AMP and Armstrong Tuner with twin speakers.
Ringo gave the radiogram to his Auntie Everley and Uncle Jim at 59 Madrin Street, Liverpool, which was Ringo`s Grandad`s house. It has been in Auntie Everleys` possession since 1966 and has just surfaced after almost 50 years.
A photograph of Ringo with Maureen sat on the Radiogram can be seen on the original photographer’s website www.HenryGrossman.com under “truth about the girls 34 Montagu Square, London.”
The Radiogram is just one of the many lots in Liverpool`s Beatles Memorabilla Auction at LIPA on August 29 2015.
The Beatles Shop, Mathew Street, Liverpool are hosting the auction at LIPA and this year will be the 24th year. They are still accepting lots for this years sale.
