Deco Radio - Dr Peter Sheridan

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 6 November 2014

Peter Sheridan is a Sydney dentist who has run a practice in Maquarie Street for more than 40 years. He was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2001 for his work with multiple sclerosis sufferers and carers. He is also an expert on clinical photography. He has always been a collector, but Art Deco radios are a relatively recent obsession. Now he has produced a beautiful and informative book on the subject. 'Deco Radio' reveals the fascinating story behind these beautiful radios and looks at the influence Art Deco and Industrial Design had on the evolution of radio styling in the 1930s and 1940s.
