Electronics Themed Comics: Radio Term Illustrated
April 1944 Radio-Craft

April 1944 Radio-Craft

April 1944 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Here are a couple new vintage electronics-themed comics for your enjoyment as you wind your way through the work week. They appeared in a 1944 issue of Radio-Craft magazine. My favorite is the one with the lady in the vacuum cleaner repair shop. Look at her request! Her husband must have put her up to it. The other comic is pretty good, too. Having lived toward the end of the vacuum tube era, my appreciation of the equipment is more for the nostalgic quality than memories of having to wait for the tubes to warm up and re-tuning the radio and TV set at intervals while listening and/or watching. You might want to e-mail this page link to your friends. A big list of all the posted tech-themed comics is at the bottom of this page.
