This edition of Off the Beaten Path is about things you may have never seen. We start off with the FCC “hunting pirates” and explore a few things that you might now have seen (or seen with an all new look).
Ride along with the Federal Communications Commission on a pirate hunt.
It’s always interesting to see how the future of cars is perceived to look. Here’s some possible future rides for us.
Abandoned Record Factory
Records have made a comeback, but here’s a great look at an abandoned old record warehouse. I’m sure a few of us know a few collectors who’d love to rummage around this place!
Anyone who was at least a kid in the 1970s probably remembers the “I’d like to teach the world to sing” Coke commercial. Well, if you haven’t (or haven’t seen it in years), it’s been remastered with a beautiful new look to it!
And finally …
Really! As radio people, we may not have thought about the audio playing inside of Kmarts, but, yes, they called that “Kmart Radio” … and thank goodness someone preserved it! This is a strange but fascinating history of “store radio” and may take you back to being a kid and going in the store and hearing the music and getting the pitch.
