Solid State AM Transistor Radio BP-156 – Built 1970

Nostalgia for Saturday – Photo
It’s amazing how far we’ve come since 1970. I would have been 5 years old and I think my radio was solid white. This one has faded and the yellow is now mostly gone from around the speaker. A big difference from the iPods with their built in FM radio don’t you think? Can you imagine being tied to only a few local stations that could be picked up on the little transistor radio? Maybe after dark or if the weather was just right a station further away could be heard. I can remember hearing a station from Ohio and thinking how is this possible when we are 700 miles away. Strange how such a small inanimate object can trigger memories…

    Radio was and still is a wonder. My transistor radio was a wee bit older. :)
