Hello from London

I recently got this radio which is housed inside a wooden body with the beatles logo on front.

Has anyone seen on of these before and could it have possibly been a prop from one of their movies?

My knowledge is limited on this radio,except it has a 1960s plug,

any help or advice greatly appreciated

thank you

Er... wish I could help you @snoopy 

I know very little about old radios and such, but it looks to me that maybe it is a custom radio, like somebody made it by themselves, because I've never seen that Beatles logo before.  Does it turn on/work at all?

  Also, welcome to the forum!apple01Cool find by the way!

It doesn't look like an official Beatles logo, so it might be made by someone else.  Then again, what do I know about these things?

Also welcome to the forum @snoopy!

And here's a picture I found on the internet that you can have as your profile picture, if you want.

But, why is George wearing what look to be John's glasses? a-hard-days-night-john-7
