Retro-Wednesday.....



This was supposed to replace cassette tapes back in the Eighties. It's a format called the Mini-Cassette. This particular little item was called the Pocket Rocker. I believe I got this for 75% off in 1988. It came with 2 taped songs...La Bomba, and Tequila.
....of course, New In The Box!! Never Opened...hehehehe
.
Peace...!!!
