So the guy who runs this 80s NostalgiaCon is partnering with us to set up a huge boombox exhibit, museum, dance floor and photo wall.  7 of us have already committed to going, but the more the merrier, because we need help to set up and keep an eye on all our radios during those 2 full days.

 

Check out the video. There will be concerts, celebrity appearances, and all sorts of 80s nostalgia rooms. Bring the whole family!

Great to see so much love for boomboxes!

You guys put up an awesome display there, many very nice radios!

 

Being in California is definitely a geographical advantage for doing something like that! I doubt they would use the Berlin expo center for stuff like that, only big corporations showing off their new products there...

Yeah we feel privileged for the opportunity to be there, they gave us a lot of space, and it was actually the first exhibit people saw when they entered the building!

 

By the way, here's our new IG page:

Nostalgia con was a blast! We we're front and center the entire weekend, and as Reli mentioned, we we're the very 1st thing that people saw when they entered the event.

Lots of artists and celebs came by our display and showed us lots of love. To name a few we had Michael Chambers aka Boogaloo Shrimp (Turbo from the 80s movie Breakin) with us all weekend long, we we're graced with the presence of The Sugar Hill Gang, Monie Love, Mellow Man Ace, Arabian Prince, Dj Sir Jinx, Rodney O, E Love (LL Cool J's right hand man back in the day) Cary Elwes (Princess Bride and Stranger Things), Corey Feldman from Goonies (who wanted to buy Melvin's custom painted blue Victor). We got so much positive feedback from countless attendees, and they really loved having the opportunity to pose and take pics in front of our "boombox wall" banner while holding a real boombox, a J1 belonging to our friend and fellow collector Rob.

This was a huge effort for all of us that we're able to be a part of it, everyone came together and contributed in one way or another to pull off this great event.

Here's a few more pics
