Oh my!! I remember getting my first transistor radio when I was around 9. Eeks, listening to the Beatles and Herman's Hermits ;)

Thanks a lot for bringing up my age Mick!!

Walkmans and cell phones didn't have a thing on us, did they Laurel? :D

Well now that is a unique take on the subject (and all too true!). I like very much the way this all works together. The neutral color palette is excellent as is the texture in the background. Nicely done Mick!

Thank you, Shani. I was thinking about the theme for a long time when it hit me: wouldn't an old vacuum tube and a 1950's transistor be considered prehistoric by todays computer nerds? :)

I bet they are, John. Even 25 years ago when I tried to replace tubes in my old guitar amplifier, finding them was a challenge.

Pásztohy Lili:
In direct opposition to what John just said: cheap! cheap! :D
