Remembering my boombox

Hello, friends
This week's mission over at CASology is about song.
CASology Week 36: song
There is a story behind this card.
I am the generation who grew up listening to radio with a boombox or home audio component. Back then in the late 80' and the early 90' in South Korea, those two were common music devices and other advanced ones such as MP3 players or portable cd players had not yet been introduced. So you could imagine that I, a junior/ high school student,(woops, I'm revealing my age here, hehe!) spent most of the nights listening to some good radio stations that continued to play most popluar Korean songs of the time. When I think back on those days, songs I listened to soothed me while I went through puberty with emontional storms. 

20 years later, now we live in the world of revolution in terms of music devices. Who would even think that there comes a time when most people listen to the music with much much more advanced and revolutionary tools of Ipod, Ipod nano, Iphone, and so on...(maybe Steve Jobs, not me :D)? 
In my card I wanted to express the moment of reflection: I am looking back to those days when I listened to music with my boombox while I am listening to my Ipot. Hope you could also take some time of those days of your life looking at my card. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. Yup, I had a boombox like that too! What a great take on the cue card Sophia! So glad you joined in on the fun at CASology this week!

  3. A wonderful post and trip down 'my memory' lane. I also had a boombox like that, back in the day of taping songs off the radio! Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at CASology!

  4. Love your card and your story. We used to listening to one of those in those days, in fact, I think we still have one back home (somewhere in the shed), but no one has touched it for a long long time.

  5. Oh, yeah, I had the boom box and made my own home-made "mix" tapes, too! What a great CAS card, what great memories! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!
