Not much good came out of the eighties. Any positive cultural additions (the films of John Hughes, The Ferrari Testarossa, Cindy Crawford) were mitigated by an overwhelming number of bad additions (leg warmers, synth pop, any and all hairstyles). Boomboxes were an exemplary positive addition, but with the advent of digital music, they’ve gone the way of the dinosaur. Almost. This retro 80’s beaut brings back the flash, and fits any iPod device to supply the tunes. It also has an auxiliary in so your options aren’t limited, as well as an FM tuner. Moreover, you can record anything off the FM tuner as an MP3 directly on to a SD card or USB drive. And while it includes a power cord, it’s made to run off those “D” batteries, just like they did back in the day.
