GenXGrownUp Backtrack: Radio Shack

“Breaker, breaker 1-9, I just eyeballed a bear trap with a bunch of Evel Knievels about 10 miles past the coop. So if you don’t want a bear bite back it down.”

Huh?

That was just some CB talk in honor of this week’s Backtrack Topic all about Radio Shack! Any GenX’er who was into anything electronic will have a story about visiting a Radio Shack. They were the place to go when you needed a hard to find part or when you wanted to speak with some knowledgeable people about CB radios, computers or anything that used electricity. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep up with the times and made some bad turns that led to a few bankruptcies and its eventual downfall.
