Retro Memory #25 – The Transistor Radio

The Latest Tunes Were Discovered Via This Handy Little Device

For many years in earlier times, the transistor radio was the only way to go if you wanted to take your music with you. Before the days of FM radio stations that dedicated hours to playing full albums, the transistor radio provided music over AM radio, and that was fine.

During its heyday, the transistor radio could be found everywhere, from beaches to bedrooms. Sadly, the Sony Walkman in the early 80’s was a harbinger of the transistor’s ultimate demise.
