SOUNDWAVE : "Ah ha! Found them! Take a look at these things son!"
SOUNDWAVE : "Way back before there were cassette players, the humans used to listen to music on big things like these. These are called records!"
FRENZY : "Wow Daddy! There so big! Does that mean bigger is better?"
SOUNDWAVE : "No son. I always told you mom it was how you used it that really matters."
SOUNDWAVE : " Then, the humans switched to a portable device for listening to music
called a Walkman."
SOUNWAVE : "They would walk around like idiots with these silly things over their heads"
FRENZY : "Help, I'm all tangled up!"
SOUNWAVE : "Someday son, maybe you'll record your own music and be a big star"
SOUNDWAVE : "Which one would you like to listen to son?"
FRENZY : "No, play me daddy! Play ME!"
SOUNDWAVE : "That's enough for tonight son. Get some sleep or you'll be tired for tomorrow's attack on the humans. Sweet dreams. Daddy loves you!"
FRENZY : "I love you too daddy!"

lovely post. Really appreciate all the effort that has gone into it and its such a good introduction to how music media has changed over the last decades.ReplyDelete
i'm sure your son would find it illuminating!
Thanks for checking out this post HD~ Nice to hear from you again.Delete
The Sony walkman was actually my wife's since I don't know what happened to the ones I purchased. The records and cassettes are from my collection since I'm a collector of sorts. It is nice to see that records are making a comeback, but that is probably due to the music industry trying to find ways to bring in lost profits from illegal downloading.
Also, I would not have been able to complete this post if I hadn't purchased the Hasbro MP Soundwave, since I won't be opening my Takara version.
I also look forward to passing on my collection to my son when he gets old enough.
