June 28, 2012 – I remember when I was about 14 and I bought my first ghetto blaster. I bought it in Spruceland Mall, using money I made from my job at the pet store. It was awesome. And I had fabulous headphones that covered my ears like ear muffs. The tapes didn’t flip automatically, but that was OK. Oh but it was cool.
Isn’t it amazing that now we can carry the equivalent of hundreds of tapes on one little machine that is the same size, but half the width of a cassette, and the headphones slip unobtrusively inside your ears.
