I would guess that the "rider" for Bon Jovi’s appearance at the Monsters Of Rock festival in 1987 was a bit more "sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll" than a vintage bakelite radio. But wires obviously got crossed and it was the radio they got. Well, not every member was overly keen on sticking it on the mantelpiece, with the 1949 Philco Transitone bakelite radio belonging to bassist Alec John spotted by the Bayraider team on eBay.
It was sold by the bass player around 13 years ago to someone who is now selling it on eBay. You’ve still got a couple of days to get a bid in – in fact, as no-one has yet bid, you might get it for the starting bid of $700. Interested? Head over to Bayraider now for details of this and many more quirky auctions.
