Throwback Thursday - The Radio Hat

Before the iHeartRadio app, before the Walkman, before the transistor radio, there was: The Radio Hat! Looks like it had an antenna, a speaker, and, no doubt, a battery.  I can't imagine what the whole thing must have weighed.  I wonder why it never caught on.  

This video shows a dapper, up-to-date, on the cutting edge of technology, 1930s commuter listening to his radio hat on his way to work.
