If you appreciate
good humor, then you'll appreciate these comics from the January 1958 edition of Radio-Electronics. Their themes are representative
of situations common in the era - like TV repairman woes and men obsessed over electronics gadgets while ignoring their wives. Not that there
are ever any comics in today's electronics magazines, but if there were, they likely would poke fun at Oblivion texters and depict fathers being
made to look like fools by their disrespectful kids for not knowing how to program a Roku player.
"You're pulling in a strong station from Australia, mam."
"You know our motto, sir. We fix the set in your home or no charge."
"Didn't work this time, did it?"
