Hot Slut Of The Day!

The Sharp Boombox!

The technical name of Sharp’s Jordan almond-colored music boxes of wonder was the Sharp QT-50, but everyone I knew just called it the little pink (or mint or purple) boombox. In the mid-80s, every girl I knew either had one of these musical vessels of pastel perfection or begged for one for Christmas or their birthday. My sister had one and it was the pink star of the bedroom we shared. The Sharp Boombox was a radio, cassette player AND cassette recorder, so it was definitely a technological marvel to me and didn’t think it could ever good better than it. And it really hasn’t, because does the iPhone or iPod come with a strap so you can wear it like a purse and strut through the neighborhood blasting hot tunes as everyone fell over from your coolness? I think not!

Just looking at the Sharp Boombox takes me back to my bedroom floor where I’d lay and wait for Tiffany’s I Think We’re Alone Now to play on the radio so that I could record it on a cassette. And I think my sister’s old Sharp QT-50 may still be in storage in my mom’s garage somewhere. I need to plan an expedition where I put on an Indiana Jones hat and climb through the hills of cardboard boxes in my mom’s garage to look for this important artifact from the 80s!
