On my desk at the day job I still have my radio. This is a double cassette deck / CD / radio I got in ’93. It hasn’t been used in about three years but it still works. Except the CD player. That’s kinda iffy, honestly. It has an AKIRA sticker on top. This was my only radio from ’93-’99 and then when I took this job it ended up on my desk and was the office sound machine for many years until we switched to Pandora on a communal machine.
Today I was joking about it with a coworker and absently popped the cassette decks open. And there was, in Deck 1, a tape. and I looked at it and smiled.
It is still one of the best releases ever. I have long since replaced my copy, and the only thing I have that plays cassettes is this one radio no my desk still (why is it still here – no one knows, but it is).
I should put it back, for emergency Funk reasons.
