Since we have been talking radio a bit lately I think even non-radio guys might find this tid-bit of history interesting.
It's a brief look at radio during it's "golden age" back in the 1930s.
Yes it's kind of dorky- but I guess some day people will think we are dorky.
I thought the '37 chevy with it's running board antenna was interesting.
People use to go to a lot of trouble to listen to radio.
