Electronics-Themed Comics
January 1945 Radio News

January 1945 Radio News
January 1945 Radio News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Here is a batch of electronics-themed comics that appeared in the January 1945 edition of Radio News magazine. The editors must have been frisky and into the holiday spirit(s) when choosing comics that month. You'll see what I mean. Marvin Townsend, one of the artists, was a frequent contributor to electronics magazines. As with Townsend and those drawn by Frank Beaven and others, you can usually tell who drew the comic by the character forms. There is a huge list of other comics at the bottom of the page.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
