I can't believe it I found a picture of my first radio. Here it is without headphones and antenna.

P.S. I built one shortly after I got this one. They both worked.
Byron,

If that was your first radio you aren't older than dirt. You are OTM.... (Older than Methusalah)

This was gonna bug me all day, so I confess I had to resort to Wikipedia!

# 1 James Garner as Bret Maverick
# 2 Jack Kelly as Bart Maverick
# 3 Roger Moore as Beau Maverick
# 4 Robert Colbert as Brent Maverick

Roger Moore as Beau Maverick? Geez! Who ever thought the guy would have a career as an actor?

Big Bopper

Getting to ride in the back of a pickup (as long as I sat very still with my back up against the cab.)

Steel roller skates (that required a key)

Unlocked doors

Milk man that came to the back door and actually put the stuff in our fridge.

No Interstates. Everyone traveled on the blue highways and it took twice as long to get there.

Dials on the TV, and you had to get up to change the channel and listen to the clunk, clunk, clunk as you spun the dial... heck, I remember getting our first TV

Transistor radios with 9 volt batteries. And you tested the battery by sticking it on your tongue! And all the best stations were on AM radio.

Go-Go Boots and Nancy Sinatra singing about them.

1963 - Gloria Steinem, when she went undercover at the Playboy club to get the scoop.

Fishnet stockings.... the first time around!

1964 - The Pill becomes the most popular form of reversible birth control in America.

Seeing children playing outdoors - hopscotch, jump rope, jacks, trading cards, the simple, fun things that we did back then. Those were the good days of real fun. Now they are inside watching TV or playing electronic games.

When we got our first car - we bought it - usually it was at least 10 years old, with some problems. Now it seems, starting out with a brand new car is the only way, and parents usually pay.

I had forgotten all about that until last year when I stayed in an RV park in central FL over the winter. Once in a while we'd take a shortcut thru town and go through a Mexican neighborhood. Even though the neighborhood was kinda crummy looking and poor there was always something familiar about it that I couldn't put my finger on. I found myself thinking about it when I rode through and I finally realized was what it was. Kids were out riding bikes, playing on the sidewalks, in the little park playing all kinds of games, etc... They weren't in the house like in the other neighborhoods and it reminded me of when I was a kid. I would get in from school and change clothes so fast the screen door didn't have time to shut before I was back out of it!

yep, the good old days!
