RCS Nostalgia: Sony Walkman Sports

Remember these?

The Mothership. Totally acceptable for that shoebox of mix tapes.

The AM/FM arm-band version. If half of radio wasn’t ads, then it would still work.

The AM/FM Headset. Seen frequently at most college football stadiums. Never wanted to miss a Munson broadcast even if you were watching the Dawgs in person.

    Ha, I'm pretty sure my dad still uses one of those AM/FM headsets.

    I watched True Lies yesterday and noticed Elisha Dushku wears a walkman in the film. I miss mix tapes. Good post.

    I still use a walkman to listen to play0by-play at Phillie's games….

    I feel embarrassed that I had two of the above and remember trying to show them off.

    I swear I was just thinking about these the other day!! I was jogging happily with my iPod remembering the days I'd try to tune into my favorite station on that stupid thing. I also used to run holding a cd player. So cool.
