I'm proud of it too.  Or rather, I was back then.  I got my first real music player for my 9th(or close to) birthday.  I was sooo super stoked! My girlfriends were jealous, it was that cool.

It looked very similar to the one pictured above.  But mine had TWO cassette holders and I could unhook the speakers from the main middle part and spread them out across my room(like two feet away really).  I miss that boombox.

My friends and I used to record music all the time off(your going to love this one), the RADIO.  Ha, ha!  That's how we got our pirated music.  There was no ITunes, or Amazon, or what have you.  We recorded it straight off of the radio.

Sometimes you'd get the occasional DJ voice in the song, but that just made it more special. Getting a commercial on it sucked though.  You really had to watch your start and stop buttons, if you know what  I mean.

I used that thing forever too.  I think I took it when I moved out of the house.  I have no idea where it is now though.  But it treated me good while I had it.

What did you first music player look like?  Share a pic below!
