126-130 Grant St. South Melbourne

Astor Radio Corporation was an Australian radio manufacturer that began operations in 1926. Astor were based in South Melbourne. Astor was considered to be progressive by offering radios in a variety of colours compared to many other firms that offered the standard wood cabinets. Astors greatest claim to fame may have been the fact they conflicted with the huge Walt Disney Company for naming one of their radios the Mickey Mouse. Legal action soon bought the use of Mickey Mouse logo to a screaming halt!
Astor later took over the radio firms Eclipse and Essanay. During the 60s Astor were amalgamated with Pye who were eventually swallowed by the giant Philips company.
