Radiogram (device)

Braun Table Radiogram, Model SK5, c 1962

Granada Radiogram, c 1960s

In British English, a radiogram is piece of furniture that combined a radio and record player.[1] The word radiogram is a portmanteau of radio and gramophone.[2] The corresponding term in American English is console.
Radiograms reached their peak of popularity in the post-war era, supported by a rapidly growing interest in records. Originally they were made of polished wood to blend with the furniture of the 1930s, with many styled by the leading designers of the day. An expensive instrument of entertainment for the house, fitted with a larger loudspeaker than the domestic radio, the radiogram soon began to develop features such as the record autochanger, which would accept six or seven records and play them one after another. Certain recordings could be ordered as a box set which would combine the recorded piece in order, to suit an autochanger set-up. In the 1940s and 1950s, sales of the radiogram, coupled with the then-new F.M. waveband, and the advent of the 45 rpm single and the LP record, meant that many manufacturers considered the radiogram to be more important than the fledgling television set sales. Later models took on the modern lines, piano gloss finish and plastic and gilt trim of the 1960s. Stereogram versions became available to take advantage of stereo records.
As valve radio development ended in the late 1960s and transistors began to take over, radiograms started to become obsolete. By the late 1970s, they had been replaced by more compact equipment, such as the hi-fi and the music centre.[citation needed]
Since radiograms were manufactured in such huge numbers they are not as rare or valuable as TV sets or table radios from the same period. An exception to this are models from certain manufacturers which have become collectable such as Hacker Radio Ltd., Dynatron, Blaupunkt, Braun, and SABA.

Biography[edit]
Edmondson is the middle daughter of comedians Adrian Edmondson and Jennifer Saunders. She grew up in Devon[2] with an elder sister, Ella, and a younger sister, Freya.[3] During her second year at the University of Manchester she decided not to audition for the Drama Society and, instead, formed a comedy group with four female friends. They appeared at the following Edinburgh Festival.[2] After years working the comedy circuit with the all-female sketch troupe, which they named Lady Garden, she broke through into television in 2008. [4] She made her début in the Ben Elton sitcom The Wright Way, which was axed after one series.
Her role in the 2015 six-part BBC Three series Josh was singled out by The Independent newspaper as “very watchable”, saying her “comic timing stuck out”.[5]

Reception[edit]
Critical response[edit]
When the film was released The New York Times film critic dismissed the film, “The Devil Thumbs a Ride, which came to the Rialto yesterday, is a distinctly pick-up affair … In the role of the thug Lawrence Tierney, who played Dillinger a couple of years back, behaves with the customary arrogance of all gunmen in cheap Hollywood films. It is pictures like this which give the movies a black eye and give us a pain in the neck.”[3]
Recently, film critic Dennis Schwartz was also critical of the film, writing, “Felix E. Feist (The Man Who Cheated Himself/Donovan’s Brain/The Threat) directs and writes this ugly hitchhiker crime drama that has little entertainment value, the characters other than the main protagonist are too incredibly dull to ring true and it has

Early Years[edit]
Roy Stephan Rosselló Díaz was born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. At the age of 11, he enrolled in the country’s top music school and by age 13 had started his career with Menudo, one of the greatest pop phenomena of all time.
Rosselló was a member of Menudo from mid-1983 to January 1987 and debuted on the album A Todo Rock. During his time, Menudo reached great popularity in Asia, more specifically in the Philippines and Japan. They had hits like “Indianápolis” and “Like A Cannonball,” which was featured in the film Cannonball Run 2. It was also during his tenure in the Menudo lineup that the group scored their biggest hit in the United States, “Hold Me.”
Menudo holds the Guinness record for largest audience in a concert, 200 thousand people at Morumbi Stadium, in São Paulo in 1984, while Rosselló was a member of the group.
Post-Menudo[edit]
At age 17, he left Menudo to pursue a solo career. He spent an entire year touring the United States, starred in a movie called Star of the Jungle, and was the host of Frente Jovem, a Brazilian TV show.
In 1991, Roy Rossello studied TV production
