January 1950 Radio & Television 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.

As evidenced in these mid-last-century magazine advertisements, Sylvania Electric marketing moguls learned early what sells products by exploiting the nature of their audience. The cartoon-style ads shown here appeared in social publications like Look, Life, and Collier's, where both men and women - many of them numbnuts - are the expected audience. Compare these with the type of ad run by Sylvania in a 'serious' magazine like Radio-Craft.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
