Sony has announced that, after 30 years, they will no longer manufacture the Walkman Cassette player.  Upon hearing this news I had to ask the question, “Wait, what?  They still make cassette Walkmans?”

Not anymore they don’t.  Truth be told, I remember getting my first cassette walkman.  It wasn’t small, often ate tapes and came with Steve Bartman headphones but good lord I loved that thing.  It got me through many a family vacation and kept me entertained while I delivered newspapers and mowed lawns.  RIP, old friend.
