Late 80's, throughout the 90's. the Boombox was AWESOME here in America.
Now, Boomboxes are making a comeback, but for now just in Japan.
More and more people, especially young people have interest in Boomboxes in Japan hoping to experience something new and fresh. No joke.
Many have never played a cassette tape in their lives and thinks it's a novelty to hear the sound quality.
We can only hope the craze and the retro trend makes it's way to the states!
