Electronics-Themed Comics
January 1940 Radio News

January 1940 Radio News
January 1940 Radio News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Here are a couple more electronics-themed comics from a 1940-era issue of Radio News magazine. The scenarios depicted in these old comics are often based on the real-life experiences of radio and electronics servicemen. No doubt many guys got clobbered by high voltage or deafening audio when a customer decided to power up a television or radio while being worked on in the home. When this comic with the police car radio appeared in 1940, it had only been a decade since the first 2-way radios were being installed in patrol cars (see "A New Arm of the Law"). A huge list of technology-themed comics is listed at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
