Looking back at Radio Shack

Published March 3, 2019

NW Space Logo.jpgWelcome back to Nostalgia Ward. Things have been slow around here, but we've dusted off some audio equipment and prepared an update. Today's NW features one of our favorite defunct electronics stores—Radio Shack!

You've got questions. We've got answers.

The famous tagline of Radio Shack was prevalent throughout the nineties. While listening to some old radio show tapes this past year, I came across this 1995 radio commercial for the brand. This spot advertises a phone sale they were having at the time. Featuring a hilarious exchange between a man called Murray and his mother, we learn they could have won a large amount of money had they only owned a better phone. Certainly a bit outdated in this area of pocket computers (that can also make phone calls!), but that doesn't render the spot any less hilarious.

Do you have an fond memories of Radio Shack? Please feel free to share them with us. We'll be back soon (possibly) with more retro fun. If you have any suggestions or requests, we'll see what we can do.
