Graduation Gifts 2 (Technology Version)

May 15, 1968, Appleton Post-Crescent
Revisiting the great graduation gifts in store for the graduates of the 1968 high schools of the Twin Cities.  Can't beat the "buy one, get one free" aspect of that free transistor radio along with the portable TV.  Black and white, of course.  But in an age of communal television viewing, it was every kid's dream to have his or her own TV set.  And... no finicky cables or satellite hook-ups to worry about. Just the good old aerial it came with or, if one was more tech-minded...rabbit ears.  After all, this IS 1968.
