4"x6" oil on raymar panel. • Besides the plain moniker of transistor radio, these little radios were also known as pocket radios because they were small enough to fit in a breast pocket. They all came with a small earphone jack, so that you could plug in your little white earphone and quietly listen—in glorious mono—to a ball game or music whilst sitting in a boring class. That little cord hanging from your head meant either you were cool like a secret agent or there was a good game being broadcast or you were just plain ol' bored. And, if you were talking with nobody around, you were just considered insane. Now, if you have a cord hanging out of your ear and you're talking, people know you're just on the phone. (Though I still think it looks a little insane.) • Man, I feel old just typing that.
