The more I hear about these things, the more I think I missed out.

That was a cool device you had, and some interesting stories.

My son owned a Sony Minidisk Walkman which still exists. I was prompted to look for it today, and having found it discovered it's still working. He doesn't want it, so I must see what it can be used for.

Minidisk Walkman

Thanks for the comments, guys. Sorry I've been so silent with shows and comments lately, just really busy at work.

I think the Sony Walkman minidisc had a much Slimmer profiled than my Sharp MD702, so it might work pretty well as an actual Walkman where you're carrying it with you while you walk around. You could also record a show on it. Have fun! :-)

Jon great episode, perhaps we can get the powers to be link these as a series to entice others to produce more. As a failed light wheel mechanic I love the truck episodes!!!
