Last year, I got rid of the 1977 Oldsmobile that really =was= My Father's
Oldsmobile. It had an analog dial. I still see some cars of its vintage
on the road.
Around home, my stereo has a digital dial, as has my Sony 2010 shortwave
radio. I also have about six radios with analog dials. One of them dates
from the 1930s. I bought it about fifteen years ago in an antique store
and restored it. Another, my father bought in 1947. The others are a
little newer. This doesn't count three old table radios that are sitting
in a box downstairs in my storage bin.
But my mother, who is not a radio buff, has a couple of transistor radios
that are over 20 years old and still work. And I think my sister also has
some radios with analog dials.
