Walkman This Way...

Ah, the Sony Walkman.

The height of modernity in 1980.  Positively futuristic!

Right there in your pocket, a portable stereo.  Wow.  

Do you remember choosing tapes to take with you on vacation?  You could fit ten in your carry case and you would oscillate wildly - shall I take Beethoven's fifth or a Flock of Seagulls?  Well, if a girl should look inside, I don't want to appear too uncool...

And I don't know about you, but I used to spend hours making MIX TAPES, the great precursors to playlists.  But I guess that's a whole other entry.

Walkman discman ipod - what next??
