The Boom Box Project by Lyle Owerko

When I first ran across this on Jay-Z’s Life and Times site, I was both drawn to the concept of immortalizing such an apparatus of music history and also thinking “Don’t all boom boxes look the same though?” I may have been born in the 80s, but started paying attention in the 90s; so I’m of the walkman era and boom boxes just weren’t an everyday occurrence.

Having looked through a few pages and the video below tis crazy some of the styles that were put out back in the day; and that for most part they are just going to go to waste. So shout outs are in order for Lyle Owerko for his collection and putting together this fantastic book.
