Evolution of Car Radio — An Infographic


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.
