The boombox was a big part of the Eighties. They were extremely transportable and came along with us everywhere. Even on the BMX!
The one I owned was a silver dual cassette tape player but unfortunately it didn’t have the must have feature of its day ‘the graphic equaliser!’.
Countless hours were spent pressing those buttons on the cassette player creating the ultimate mixtape!
We wanted to capture these experiences when we took the Arcade Street Crew down for a boombox photoshoot recently. The theme was about revisiting the simple times of hanging out with your mates, playing mixtapes and carrying a boombox everywhere!
Oh... the good old days!
