and actually NO... I didn't not grow up in the Radio era. Close, but not quite.

TV was around for me and even though we didn't have a TV until I was about 5 or so I still didn't listen to much radio because I was too busy playing outside.

In HS radio was HUGE... for music that is. And obviously. My discovery of radio as 'entertainment' in other things besides music came about in Germany on the Armed Forces Network. We didn't have a TV and each afternoon the AFN would play old radio shows like "Our Miss Brooks"... "The Shadow"... "The Jack Benny Show"... etc. My wife would sit around our small kitchen table... me with a German Lager and maybe some pumpernickel bread, and listen in for a couple hours or so. Fell in love with it.

Then in the 60's and 70's when I didn't have season tickets I'd listen to the Ram games on the radio because it was harvest season and I'd be out in the field. And I know this will sound 'nuts' but I think I actually preferred the radio to TV. "What you grew up with", I suppose.

These days I will nearly ALWAYS, if the game is tight, head to my pickup and listen on the radio... in fact, only time I did NOT do that, I think, was this last SB. Hence the reason we lost. - JamesJM
