So it’s official, Sony, is discontinuing it’s line of Sony Walkman Cassette players as of today, October, 25, 2010, 30 years after it first came out with the popular Sony Walkman Cassette player!
To be honest with you, I thought it was out of production decades ago!
The final batch of Walkmans have been made and were shipped from Japan in April. According to the Sony website, they created and shipped more then 220 million of their popular Walkman Cassette player since 1979 when the company first introduced us to them.
I had one of these beauties that came with an AM/FM radio in it. Man, that was really impressive back then. I have no idea where it ended up to, but every time I see one it makes me smile!
So hats off to the men and women who helped develop the Walkman.
Keep on Jammin’
