In this day and age of rapid global expansion, it is important to keep up with every sort of trend. Clothing and fashion, hair, music, etc etc. The trendiest burrito joint of today may be the sad and abandoned shack of consumeristic dreams of tomorrow. Which is why I’m here, to provide all with the most up to date reviews, so that everyone can make educated decisions as to what to buy to boost popularity and awesomeness levels. Today’s feature is: The Walkman Radio

At first, I was skeptical. Portable music? The idea was too far-fetched for me to grasp instantly, but it can’t be denied that modern technology keeps getting crazier and crazier every day.

Overall, I was very pleased with the versatility of the walkman. Slightly too bulky to fit in a pocket, it is nonetheless able to be conveniently clipped onto a belt, allowing me to display my cool factor to the world. I was fortunate enough to purchase a very new model, which means that my personal radio runs on two batteries as opposed to four. Speaking of two, it has two headphone inputs in it, so in case a friend of mine has also headphones we can listen to the same music at the same time! Very reasonably priced at around $105, you still may need to save your allowance for a few weeks in order to afford one of these babies, the way I did. If you’re planning on purchasing a walkman, I recommend buying a fanny pack to put all of your cassettes into for easy access reasons. This allows for switching of albums while you’re on the go.

So far I am impressed with the fantastic quality of the sound the device offers, and the extreme portability. As mentioned above, I am also quite happy with how it merely needs two batteries in order to operate. Consensus: BUY. ONE. NOW, before they get swept off the shelves by your friends!

Note: Just got word of some new gadget called an “iPod”. Anyone have any info about this development? Let me know in the comments!
