The portable cassette player that kick-started the entire industry.
If you’re old enough to remember this little gem then congrats. You’ve been around the block a few times. If you remember it because you had one – then you’re among the blessed. This week marks the Walkman’s 41 anniversary of the TPS-L2, a metal cased, blue and silver hunk of a thing that sold more than 30,000 units in the first 2 months alone. It eventually sold over 200 million units to cassette loving fans worldwide. You may not have known but it was in production all the way until 2010.
No. They’re not releasing a commemorative addition or anything like that. Although I would snap that up in a heartbeat – Let us know of your personal experiences with the Walkman if you owned one and give it a review!
