You do know different airlines have different rules about luggage?

Perhaps if you stated who you are flying with someone can help you.

Also which route - it could be subject to the restrictions on certain items on some routes to the UK/USA.

Unless you're flying a route subject to the current electronics ban and your luggage otherwise complies with airline policies I don't see why a radio/cassette player would be a problem in checked luggage.

Hopefully it's not an 8-Track, those can get a little unwieldy to lug around.

Believe it or not, players are still being manufactured and music is still being released on cassette tapes :)

I don't understand what you mean. You say you want to take it on the plane but not in hand luggage but then you say you don't want it damaged.

Not taking it in hand luggage means checked luggage which means more likely to be damaged.

As long as it fits in hand baggage size and weight for the airline you're flying with, that would be the best way to reduce the risk of damage.

You just need to be aware of current electronics restrictions for the UK and US

Are you saying you want to take it as hand luggage in addition to your hand luggage allowance?
