T-Shirt Designs in the Wild, 1976







See more at the Billings Gazette. I totally forgot about the CB radio craze from about 1975 to 1981, although I loved Smokey and the Bandit and The Dukes of Hazzard. The Wikipedia article doesn’t mention it, but Glen A. Larson’s B.J. and the Bear was another popular series spotlighting the CB.

    And the ill-fated BJ spinoff, “The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo.” I still occasionally get those theme songs stuck in my head.

    Classic. LoL “Do it in the dirt” hahah …man. ’70s shirts were the best.

    Speaking of CB radios…I wonder how prevalent it is now, especially in the trucking community. It would be interesting to see how it’s done in the past 20 years or so.

    My uncle had a CB set up in his truck back in the mid-’80s, and one night when we came over for a family get-together he let me mess around with it, giving me the basics of CB communication, i.e. “What’s your 20,” “What’s your handle,” etc.. I was probably about 14 at the time. It was surreal to search the frequencies for other people out there. I’d hear static, hisses, pops, that “wooo-eeee-ooooo” wail or fragments of other conversations, then out of nowhere there’d be a nice clean slot and someone would respond and make conversation.

    Now that I think back on that night I realize how far we’ve come along since then. I mean, even the basic ritual of pressing the button on the side of the microphone to transmit your voice seems super antiquated. And the coiled cord? Ha. Forget it.
