I remember having my first boombox back in 1989. It was a black Sanyo that took 6 D batteries and played 2 cassette tapes. I would lug that beast everywhere, while me and friends ripped up the neighborhood skateboarding. Those were the days!
For those of you who are boombox enthusiasts, here’s a great site that profiles the history of the ghettoblaster. Some of them older models were dope!
