Old Time Radio cassette tapes - RF CafeThere are few better ways to wind down a work week than with some good old-fashioned (literally) technology-themed comics. This three fifths of a handful of comics appeared in a 1944 issue of Radio News magazine. You need to know when looking at these scenarios that people in the 1940s cherished and revered their radio sets like people today do with their cellphones. Magical and supernatural attributes were assigned to them by some, especially the non-technically inclined. Entire families gathered around the radio in eager anticipation of the latest episode of "The Shadow," The Lone Ranger," "Little Orphan Annie," "Jack Benny," and "Inner Sanctum Mystery." BTW, if you want to experience the aura of old time radio shows, many of them are available for listening online on the Old Time Radio Catalog website and others. Or, you can do like I did and buy a set of Old Time Radio shows on CD. My set is on cassette tapes, which only be found these days on eBay.

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...
