wow!

This is just crazy Exclamation

As a teenager and budding electronics enthusiast back in the ‘70s I used to spend many hours thumbing through those Radio Shack catalogs… Cool

I still have some of their old products around the house (with one still in constant use: an APM-300 Audio Power Meter). My first real synth was a Realistic Concertmate MG-1, custom manufactured for Radio Shack by Moog Music back in the ‘80s.

It sure will be a lot of fun to browse through those old catalogs… a real trip down memory lane…

Thanks a million for sharing this link Exclamation

Hey! Just looking at the 1983 catalog, pages 54-55, has three products that I still have:

Realistic 10-Band Wide Range Frequency Equalizer

APM-300 Audio Power Meter

Realistic MG-1 Synth

They even have a picture in there of Elton John endorsing the MG-1 Exclamation Laughing
