I remember sometime around 1949 or 1950 sitting with my father as he 
listened to a baseball game on the radio where there was all this 
clicking before the announcer said anything.  My dad explained to me 
that the announcer was sitting in Boston and reading the game plays from 
a ticker.  I didn't quite know what a ticker was, and I thought he was 
somehow able to interpret the clicks.
