      You take that back! I had a fantastic top of the range Alba that immediately played side 2 when side 1 was finished. It ate batteries like a…

      “Transformer with a case of the munchies”? Who the hell wrote that? Brian? You’re fired, man.

    If one needed to block out the sounds of certain siblings in your life while asserting a new ferver for cassette gifts and personal moosic…these were WONDERFUL.

    Interesting to see the price of batteries v walkman there, two (presumably AA) batteries are 26p each, so that’s 52p for the pair. That’s around 2.6% of the value of one of those £19.95 models, which means in today’s money – when two AA batteries in Argos are around €2.40 – a walkman would be the equivalent of €92.

    And sure enough, a Sony 8GB Walkman is €95 in Argos (http://www.argos.ie/ProductDisplayTRK019?partNumber=1418660). But now they don’t need batteries.
