July 1, 1979 was the birth of an era for portable music player. This is the day that Sony release its first Walkman player in the market. Advertise with a kid in a skateboarder to illustrate how the portable cassette-tape player delivered music on-the-go.
I remember when my father came home with his new Walkman on clipped on his belt. It was the coolest thing I’ve seen.
Having one in those days will put you in the cool kid on the block.
It sure change the way we see ourselves in the future back then.
