Remember the old days back when wireless was a radio wave transmitter and receiver then sometime in the early 1900s radio receivers became vogue. At first they were big and bulky cathode tube devices fitted into wooden décor art cabinets that found its way into people’s homes. With battery technology getting better as the decades progressed the wireless portable radio came into fashion.

I have always loved descriptive words, and in Afrikaans they have a few gems such as tontledoos tinderbox, draadloos radio, or my all too favourite the bleetradio television. So today’s photo is of the retro radio sitting on the cabinet behind my desk.

Ohhh we mustn’t forget the boombox era, boom boom boom!
