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

It's Friday, so why not kick back at the end of work today and enjoy these electronics-themed comics from a vintage edition of Radio & Television News? Seeing a comic panel in any modern technical magazine these days is rare, if for no other reason than a fear amongst publishers (and their lawyers) that somebody, somewhere might be offended. You have my invitation to create a good-humored cartoon about me or RF Cafe anytime you wish, and I promise not to sue you. I'll even post it here on the website if you like.

BTW, these comics make good fodder for the front page of your technical presentations - a good way to soften the edge going into a meeting, especially if you are not good at delivering jokes.
