Agreed, all these choices can be very overwhelming, if I don't like what's on the radio I just change channels. :)

Re: Walkman

Here’s my old beast, Sony wm-1. Got it at an estate sale long ago for a whopping $.50. Still works, had that Antonio Carlos jobim tape in there for a decade. Even the old red Sony mdr-1 headphones still work. It’s also got the extra headphone jack for when you and a buddy wanna jam out together.

Re: Walkman

So, excuse my stupidity. The moped monday podcasts and such that are put on here, could I ask a "smart speaker" to play them and they would?

Re: Walkman

Re: Walkman

I had the first model, back in 79-80.

Kinda f'd up story of how I got it, but I was only 10-11 years old, so...

We lived in Tucson Arizona and would ride our bmx bikes all night, after telling our parents we were going to the movies.

We were riding down a street by the UofA, where all the college kids lived, and there was a convertible MG midget parked with the top down, and I saw the orange headphones hanging from the rear view mirror from a mile away.

Two seconds later I had my first Walkman.

Whoever's car that was, I hope you had really really bad karma and needed me to check it, or that you graduated and became a very rich, successful person.
