WATCH: Will Kirk visibly emotional while discussing The Repair Shop

Speaking about his interest in radio restoration, he wrote: "I would say people like myself have an interest in the past, perhaps because it seems they were better times, things were less complicated and hearing the sound coming from a radio loudspeaker. Perhaps the family were sitting around listening to the Clithero Kid, The Navy Lark on a Sunday lunchtime or late in the night or hearing from a 1930's radio that war in Europe has ended.
