PURE’s Best Selling Radios Available in Amnesty

London, UK 19th May 2010: “”PURE – the world-leading leading radio maker – is offering a selection of its best-selling radios as part of the Radio Amnesty, announced by the radio industry today.””

Consumers will be offered a discount on a new PURE digital radio when they hand in their old analogue radio to participating retailers.

Discounts will be available on selected PURE radios through a number of retailers including John Lewis, Comet, Tesco and Argos as well as selected independent retailers.

The amnesty will run between the 22nd May and the 26th of June 2010 and will promote the additional and exclusive-to-digital coverage of sport and music.

Says Colin Crawford, PURE’s director of marketing: “”Having started the digital radio revolution with the release of the EVOKE-1 in 2002, I’m delighted that with the passing of the Digital Economy Act, the radio industry, manufacturers and retailers have now got together to create a strong digital radio promotion for the UK’s summer of sport and festivals.””

The analogue radios collected during the Amnesty will be reconditioned and sent to the Children’s Radio Foundation in South Africa and UNICEF, where they will further the personal and intellectual development of children through giving them access to radio programmes for children. Radios which are beyond repair will be recycled under the WEEE directive.
