Do you detect any (probably unintended) irony in the page 76 comic from a 1947 issue of Radio-Craft magazine? It shows a husband and wife shopping for a new radio and has the husband telling the salesman, "I don't care if it is FM - I want one that plays in the P.M.!" I'll let you think on it for a moment. As with many of the comics that appeared in the magazine, the scenarios were suggested by readers. The other comic played on the common music programming schedule that included times of "dinner music," "evening music," etc. If you like these comics, then you'll appreciate the huge list at the bottom of the page of others with tech themes.

Hint for the FM comic: Frequency modulation (FM) is related to phase modulation (PM) by an integral function. Both are forms of angle modulation. Get it?
