Summary:

It’s fun to take a trip down memory lane, for those of us who can remember where to find it, and an infographic by RadioTime has triggered a nice one. It’s a look at how the car radio has evolved since the beginning. Ah, those 8-tracks.

Evolution of the Car Radio_infograph

It’s always fun to take a trip down memory lane, for those of us who can remember where to find it, and an infographic by RadioTime has triggered a nice one. It’s a good look at how the car radio has evolved since the time of the Great Depression. My memory banks were revved up thinking back on innovations like the audio cassette and the 8-track tape. My, didn’t Foreigner sound great on both of those formats? Take a look at the graphic and take your own trip down that lane of memories. Leave a comment about where you think we might be headed next for car audio.

  1. I’m surprised they skipped over widespread adoption of FM. That was a big deal!

  2. No mention of satellite radio? Howard would be hurt if he understood the internet…

  3. Pretty sure that Paul GALVIN founded Motorola, not Professor Frink (frequently uses the word GLAVIN).
