If you appreciate good humor, then you'll appreciate these comics from the January 1958 edition of Radio-Electronics. Their themes are representative of situations common in the era - like TV repairman woes and men obsessed over electronics gadgets while ignoring their wives. Not that there are ever any comics in today's electronics magazines, but if there were, they likely would poke fun at Oblivion texters and depict fathers being made to look like fools by their disrespectful kids for not knowing how to program a Roku player.
