Wayback Machine 1956: Solar Powered Radio


Four Transistors! Solar Power! Who needs a Voltaic when you have this? The best top 40 AM radio delivered without changing batteries. Who knew that the year that brought us Elvis Presley's Hound dog, I walk the line by Johnny Cash and Blue Suede Shoes by Carl Perkins also brought us the solar powered radio. ::Popular Electronix via ::Modern Mechanix
