THE WEEKEND COLLECTOR: Transistor Radio Design
Transistor Radio Design, and belongs to collector James J. Butters. I was fascinated going through his pages, seeing the cool space-age designs of the fabulous transistor radios of the 50s and 60s. It brought back such a flood of memories, remembering how I, and all of my friends, carried transistor radios around with us wherever we went as pre-teens and teens. Listening to Dodger games, teen idols Frankie Avalon and Fabian, then later, the Beatles and the Monkees, my ear was often glued to my radio.
