Former WQE student restores vintage radios

Former WQE student Diogo Martins has been adding to his collection of vintage radios by restoring them to their former glory.

Diogo, who completed A-levels in Electronics, Physics and French last year, has made the most of lockdown by repairing the old radios and learning about the history of the wireless devices.

Speaking to the BBC about what inspires him to carry out his hobby, he said: “Without a doubt many of these radios have a family history where families have gathered around to listen to music and information, and it’s that history which I find so endearing.”
