For whatever reason, my teen son was interested in getting a Walkman and cassettes. Can you believe that? He said he found it cool. Retro must be cool again somehow or maybe it’s because of the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, who knows.
His quest started by looking for the items at garage sales and he wasn’t successful. He then went to Fry’s and found that they still sell Walkman. He then went to an old record store and bought several tapes in mostly classic rock.
He then came home with all his findings and asked for help on how to “work it”. I was amused at listening to my husband explain to my son how a cassette tape works.
