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

From about the middle of the 1950s through the 1990s, stereo systems were a pretty big deal amongst music listeners. A lot of the interest was driven by rapid improvements in technology in sound recording and reproduction equipment. An economical boom in the post Korean War years combined with a process developed by Emory Cook to cut dual channels of stereophonic sound onto vinyl records enabled a fad fueled by teenagers of building the best home sound systems possible with available funds. Audiophiliac adults, of course, were also prime motivators of the technology since they had deeper pockets and could afford higher-end equipment and larger collections of records. Magnetic tape was also a bit part of the craze, but the big money was in vinyl. If you peruse the vintage electronics magazines like this Radio & TV News, Popular Electronics, Electronics World, et al, you will notice the pages were filled with technical articles on and advertisements for stereo music reproduction gear. This is all not to say there are still not plenty of stereo aficionados out there, it's just that probably not as large a portion of music-listening public feels the need to own much more than a quality pair of headphones or earbuds and a smartphone to obtain a nearly concert hall quality of listening experience. That's good news for parents not having to badger their kids to "turn down that d*$% music," or apartment dwellers not needing to pound on the wall or ceiling when a neighbor has his stereo blasting. I'm guessing people age 40 and older might do the best job completing this "anagram," which is a misnomer for what is actually a crossword puzzle.
