Hobnobbing with Harbaugh - The Store

June 1962 Popular Electronics

June 1962 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

"My husband wants a selenimum rectalfire, a silicode capasitator, and a 16 bome appleflyer." That is the caption of one of the "Hobnobbing with Harbaugh," comics that appeared in the June 1962 edition of Popular Electronics magazine. Dave Harbaugh's "Hobnobbing with Harbaugh" was a monthly feature for a couple years that dealt with stereotypical (pun intended) behavior of technophiles and their often unwilling, often unwitting wives, girlfriends, kids, parents, workmates, and neighbors. Check out the large list of other electronics-themed comics at the bottom of the page.
