Before iRadio

20130618-130521.jpg
As we are moving toward listening content on demand more and more, it’s time to go back in time to see what tech was like a couple of decades ago. I am old enough to have interacted with radio programming in the pre-internet days. Eventhough I’m predominantly visual, I still listened to radio. Here’s a few things I did outside of just listening to music.

  • I listened to The Dr. Demento show on Sunday nights.
  • I read along with a storytelling of “Star Wars: A New Hope” on a radio program.
  • I used the cassette tape player to record music playing from the radio station.

Those were unique experiences. The explosion of technological advances today are exciting, and creative people are continue to make unique experiences. Still, I think not having access to media back in the day created an anticipation and enthusiasm that lead to nostalgic moments like the one I’m having right now. What are your memories from the past that cannot be duplicated today because of technology?

I have a family. I work with families. That's why I write about family. I'm a kidmin pastor by day, writer by night, delivery man for my wife's floral design business, and a picture-taker dude 24/7.
