I have found memories of my Walkman and the small collection of tapes that went with it. The CD came around and things were better sounding and Walkman found its way to the bottom of the drawer.
After watching this video by YouTuber Techmoan I want my Walkman back. It is something amazing to consider how much development went into this format over the years.
If you like that video I would check out his others. He does reviews of some off the wall audio and video formats from years gone by.
