    Yeah, I had a couple of pairs of those headphones radios. My dad was given them and passed them to me. They worked quite well, though mine were yellow, so a bit garish for my taste. I remember during Euro '96 listening to football matches on them.

    I have a vague recollection of the novelty radios sold by Tandy, but nothing definite. Our closest shop was quite a distance away so I only got to visit it a couple of times a year.

    Not exactly novelties in the strictest sense, but there were electronic kits that allowed you to build a radio, either in a stand-alone kit or as part of a bigger kit of projects.

    As mentioned on the site, Clive Sinclair made kit radios & modular hi-fis before getting into calculators & computers.
