The first transistor radio hit the market just in time for the 1954 Christmas gift-giving season. While the inner workings remain relatively unchanged, this timeless piece of technology has become smaller and more attractive over the years.
Why are AM / FM radios a better choice over smartphones?
• Battery Efficient – they use much less battery power because they are simple electronics
• Reliable – they don’t rely on cellular service or internet connection speed to work
• Lower Cost – they cost far less than MP3 players, ipods, and smartphones
• Long-Lasting and Durable – Many people keep their radios for decades because radio technology doesn’t change. There are no software updates or hardware upgrades to keep up with.
• Nostalgic Feeling – There’s something about listening to a radio. It’s like taking a step back in time.
