Due to the Baseball playoffs, I was just thinking of the hand-held transistors radios we had as kids.  What ever happened to all of those?  I stll have mine - it's in the shape of a Jaguar E Type!  Cool, but hard to hold while riding one's bicycle!

Jean Shepard - what a great storyteller! 

Ya we had one of those early Zenith hand-helds that looked like a face
and had the little prop in the back so you could stand it up. 
Those early Mopar x-sistor radios were kinda crappy 'cause like all the
early ones they had Germanium rather than Silicon X-sistors in them, as
did most early HiFi stereos. It wasn't as noticible in the car radios
as in the home units but they had terrible sound compared to what came
after and were unreliable as well.  I much prefer an all tube unit, easier to troubleshoot and sounds better!

Quote from: POLARACO

with the telescoping antenna.  

Yep!  I still remember crying when my antenna broke off and my Dad could not fix it.  I have that radio somewhere....
