The Boombox - 2 Large Speakers, 2 Small Tweeters, Cassette Tape Player AND Recorder, AM & FM Radio with an Epic Antennaand a large handle to carry is BECAUSE THEY'RE SO HEAVY!
These things were garganchuan! These were commonly carried on people's shoulders (before the Walkman) to listen to some sick beats.
Of course, we are all familiar with Iconic picture of Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything as he lifts his Boombox above his head playing Peter Gabriel's song "In Your Eyes".
For my FINAL episode in my Driving Around Karaoke series - 80's Week, I sang Belinda Carlisle's hit song, "Heaven Is a Place on Earth".
The song was released in 1987 and doesn't make much sense, but man is it fun to sing! Give it a listen and Comment on the YouTube video!
