On it's way to me, from beautiful Ruse, Bulgaria!
The store owner also sells rare vintage accordions from all over Eastern Europe.

I've been a fan/practitioner of Yoga, meditation etc. since my teens, still do some of it. How cool to have a radio whose name comes from classical Indian music!

Looks like only 8 transistors, probably nothing special performance wise, but still gorgeous.

Perhaps.

The seller told me he has a Bajazzo for sale.

Unfortunately, he also told me all flights out of Bulgaria are essential only, so my expected delivery is in early November.

I almost thought it was Gustav Mahler. I would drop everything to find one if it was.

Best,
