What IS That??

Hmmm, so far there have been zero comments on photos I've posted from my recent vacation so I'll stop subjecting blog viewers to any more.

But...

While looking at the Walk Of Stars, the tour guide mentioned that when younger people saw this symbol, they assumed it was a cell phone. Radio performers from the past would wonder about that??

Apparently they had no trouble with the twin masks of comedy and drama that represents stage actors honored with a star and the motion picture camera symbol was loud and clear as was a tv with rabbit ears.


This familiar looking symbol, to them, was a CD or even a DVD, but what was that thing covering part of it?

Vinyl records are making a comeback so maybe it will make more sense to younger star-gazers along Hollywood Boulevard.

I thought the tour guide's comments were good observations.

I think the first picture is an image of an old style microphone...but it looks like its upside down.

Hey, thanks (finally) for a comment. Yep, that mic is the symbol for RADIO on the Walk of Stars.
