Rediscovering Music with VQ – WIN an Emma Bridgewater Retro Radio

10th August 2017

For so long we never listened to music, I enjoy music but it just wasn’t part of our routine, kids TV took over. Aria likes to watch CBeebies while she eats breakfast, I oblige as it gives me a chance to peek at social media. The TV then tends to stay on in the background throughout the day until we switch it off before going to bed.

I missed music. Music is good for the soul. I decided that it was time to make a change, to have a dance each morning that wasn’t to Mr Tumble’s dulcet tones, to start the day with a smile.

We have now fallen deeply in love with our VQ Retro Mk II Dab radio in the most beautiful Emma Bridgewater blue daisy print*. We tend to keep the radio in the kitchen. Each morning when I am preparing breakfast with Aria we stop for a moment, we turn the radio on and have a sing and a dance. I often turn it on while cooking tea and sometimes we will pop it on during the day too, usually when Aria is ‘helping’ me carry out the chores.

Now, the retro Emma Bridgewater radio is quite special. It looks amazing which is an instant hit as far as I am concerned, but it’s also a very functional piece of kit. The sound quality is superb, it features DAB, DAB+ and FM radio, it comes with a dock which can be used to play music from your Apple device or just to charge it. One of my favourite features is the re-chargeable battery that gives you around 25 hours listening time in between charges meaning that we can take our tunes out into the garden with us. Also, the leatherette wrap means that I can quickly wipe Aria’s bubbles/hand prints off it, mammy win!

    Oh, wouldn’t be without my digital radio now- it was a companion through many late nights as a student and the habit’s stuck into parenting/adulting.
    I love the VQ retro styles, been after one for a while, but the Emma Bridgewater prints are really something special aren’t they.

    Delighted to have found your blog!
    All the best, R x
