Electronics-Themed Comics
March 1961 Radio-Electronics

March 1961 Radio-Electronics

March 1961 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Most of the time the tech-themed comics which appeared in vintage electronics industry magazines reflected popular issues of the day. In 1961 when these five comics appeared in Radio-Electronics, home stereo systems and television performance woes (with the need for repair and/or adjustment) were at the top of the list. Less domestic issues like the fledgling satellite technology, digital computer systems, vehicle navigation, and medical instrumentation often made the cut as well. The page 48 and 81 comics address stereo, page 99 does satellites, page 116 covers medicine, and 121 hits on TV. A saying in the world of humor is that in order to be successful, there needs to be some truth in the gag in order to be truly funny. Sometimes the truth element is subtle and might even require the targeted audience to be privy to not so widely known information. Such is the case with a couple of these.
