The Beginning of Stereo

Things were different back then.
Your car didn't have a stereo radio it only had AM. Engineers worked on methods of putting both Stereo audio channels onto a single radio station -- or "Multiplexing", as it is called. We all know about multiplex FM Stereo; it was introduced in the USA in 1961 and became especially popular in the 1970s. Today, virtually all radios have FM Stereo capability.
