…and I had to look up when the Transistor Radio was first brought to market because that’s what the smart phone evolved from. The Transistor Radio is 69 years old. It was in 1954 the Regency TR-1 was released becoming the first commercial transistor radio. It became the most popular electronic communication device of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Thank you, Wikipedia. And billions are estimated to have been sold world wide between the 1950’s and 2012. The Transistor Radio came to mind while listening to the new Pickle and Froggy Radio App on my smart phone which is free to download from the App store Google play or the QR code at foreverpgh.com. But unlike the Transistor Radio I don’t have to wait for the jock to tell me the name of the song I’m listening to, the app will tell me and all the songs I missed, even the ones I don’t like and I can tell the app which ones those are too. It alerts me of contests, features and more all packed nice and neat like on my phone along side everything else in my life and all in the palm of my hand. It’s become the one accessory we don’t leave home without and break out into a cold sweat when the low power warning comes on and there is no charger in site forcing you to look for nearest convenience store to buy a USB car charger. Man, talk about coming a long way since 1954, definitely an understatement.
