I just found my Ghetto Blasters (portable cassette player) whilst clearing out the shed and bad memories came flooding back! I remember asking my mum and dad for a ghetto blaster with twin tapes for Christmas.
My face must have been a picture when I pulled it out of its box ! The whole point of my ghetto blaster was to take it with me to a breakdance party, but when I spotted the that it only had one tape deck and a PIANO, yes a PIANO on the front instead of twin decks, my world fell apart! My dad said to me "we got you a record player last year with twin decks so we reckoned you would like the PIANO instead". My breakdancing dream was over. God bless you Dad!
