For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, Radio Rentals were a company who would rent you a radio or television set if you couldn't afford to buy one outright.
"Two of the most spectacular areas of entertainment have for several years been sponsored by Radio Rentals. 10 years of show jumping — 3 years of the Royal Green Jackets Parachute Display Team. Radio Rentals care — we support these activities as part of our policy to bring you the finest in leisure time activity. This is just a small part of our operation — we are of course the country's largest and most successful TV rental company. Over 1¾ million people rely on us for our second to none, nationwide service and our choice of a wide range of home entertainment products.
"Have fun with this rub-down transfer — it comes free with our compliments. And remember — next time you are thinking about home entertainment — think Radio Rentals — and pop into our local showroom — our advice is free.
"Our television and video recorders will compliment [sic] your home and household budget. In addition, our service will give you peace of mind."
Would you rather have this transfer set, or a pair of Radio Rentals Golden Jubilee cufflinks?
