Long before the family gathered in front of your 60-inch 4k HDTV, people depended on radio to pass the time. New technology brought the voices of the world into the home of anyone who could afford a receiver. News could be broadcast instantly, and people could tune in to the same station every week for entertainment as well. The radio brought live entertainment into everyone's home at once, and it changed the world. In the days before transistor radios, everyone had a tube radio, which needed time to warm up before you could tune the station. A trip to eBay can let you travel back to the era where radio dominated the airwaves by bringing a piece of classic Americana home. Technology has changed, and radio has evolved over the decades, but there's something truly magic in the warm and fuzzy sound of a vintage radio. And some things never change: everyone is still bickering about which show to tune in for.
