Electronics-Themed Comics
February 1960 Radio-Electronics

February 1960 Radio-Electronics

February 1960 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Three out of five of these electronics-themed comics are fire related. Maybe that was a common issue back in 1960 when they appeared in Radio-Electronics magazine, but it was probably just a coincidence. The page 39 comic has a topic common in the earlier days of television as can be seen in some of the others in the huge list of electronics- and technology-themed comics at the bottom the the page. Being a lifelong teetotaler, I can't really relate to the page 153 comic, but I'm guessing a lot of RF Cafe visitors can appreciate it.

* ChatGPT came up with this when queried about the etymology of the word "teetotaler:"

The word "teetotaler" is derived from the phrase "T-total," which was used in the early 19th century in England to describe a person who completely abstained from alcohol. The origin of the phrase is uncertain, but one theory suggests that it was derived from the practice of using a "T" to mark a person's name on a pledge card, indicating their commitment to abstaining from alcohol. The word "teetotaler" first appeared in print in the 1830s, and it quickly became a popular term for those who abstained from alcohol. The word gained popularity in the temperance movement, which was a social movement that advocated for the prohibition of alcohol. Today, the word "teetotaler" is still used to describe someone who abstains from alcohol completely, often for personal or religious reasons.
