Someone on a local buy/sell/trade facebook site was looking to borrow an old boombox. They didn't specify which one or what it was for. I messaged them to find out what 'style' they were looking for.
He sent me a snip of the Beastie Boys album cover with the M90. I thought, oh shiat - he wants to borrow THAT boombox.
I asked what for? He said that for his families xmas card, they wanted to recreate the album cover and if I had that boombox how much would it cost to buy or borrow it?
I told him to give me a case of beer and a xmas card and it was all his to borrow.
Today, I got both the radio and xmas card. Super happy to have been a part of this. And, from what research I could find out, that album cover picture was taken in New York and this M90 was found in the trash somewhere in Brooklyn, New York before it ended up in my hands.
Couldn't have been a better match.
