Actually, I'm listening to BBC Radio 4 on Long Wave on my Sharp 9494 ! :lol:

Just thought I'd try LW as I don't ever use it, too see the reception quality.

I love signal strength meters too, I often go through the bands comparing strengths of various stations.

Sad but true. ;-)

Nice! I saw them live at an outdoor festival back in 1987, they performed with Jimmy Cliff, Steel Pulse and a couple of other reggae bands. The show was at an open-air ampitheatre along the Rhein river (called the Loreley) in Germany. What a great time! Went with a bunch of my Air Force buddies.

Sounds like an ultra cool experience JT. :thumbsup:

I've always fancied the idea of reaching a Reggae Sunsplash event with all the big names, being a massive Reggae fan!

At work.
Not many in the office today, so I'm playing my iPod through my Hitachi TRK8200.

I've got a GF777 right next to me which sounds a lot better, but I just like the sound of this Hitachi. It's a good, honest mid>full-size boombox. It suits 80s music very well.
It's a bit light on the bass, but I think that about just about every boobox short of a Kaboom :-)

Listening (at a sensible level, it's early) to the GF9494, an old cassette with 'Phantom 309' by Red Sovine!

[quote name="Boom Shaka Laka"]Friday night it was Juice Newton on this Sony CFD-444, a recent Salavation Army thrift find. Not the biggest sound, but love the vertical CD player. (Yeah, it still works!) =quote]

Thanks for reminding me! I found one of those at goodwill also. Actually I find the 444 is louder than some other boxes in its class. It has a nice line-in and solid but not abundant bass. Nice EQ also. It has a cool very dated look also ("CD" wow :-P ) If I can find mine I'll take it to work with me today :thumbsup:

Hey Jovie... read your review on S2G about the 444 http://stereo2go.com...9665#8601039665, and it was very helpful. Made me feel really good about my purchase! Thanks!! :-D

Lounging in my back yard, with my Hitachi TRK-8600, on this delightful 59º (F) Sunday afternoon in May, enjoying the cool breeze and Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side"... on Detroit's classic rock station, WCSX 94.7FM. Ahhhh! :-P
