Earlier this week I got a PM on the other site from Frank (Hemiguy2006) that he was going to be heading up to Tampa for a work related training certification thingy. That meant he would be driving within 1/2 of a mile of my house (thats 0.8 km for our European members)! I then thought it would be a good idea to also invite Juan (Ford93) to come by as well, as he has been itching to see my newly acquired M90!

Thus, Boomboxery Mini-Meet #1 was established! No badges were made for this one, but we did have plenty of boomboxes, beer and burgers on hand.

Needless to say, both the back patio and the man-cave DJ booth area got a good workout last night as we shared music and technology. Topics of the evening included boomboxes, site moderation, cigars, DJ club dynamics, sound systems, cassettes, music and this new site.

I would also like to point out that our first toast was in honor of the Fatdog's efforts in putting together this new forum. It was a Boomboxery toast!

Overall, a grand time was had by all... And the guys thoroughly scrutinized my new M90 and ran it through its paces. Overall, they both approve... I got a good one! (which I pretty much already knew, but it was good to hear from some "experts")

Here are some of my pics... Frank took some as well, which I'm sure will eventually make their way here as well...

Bye, Bye Kaboom - In the studio room... :cool:

Yea, looking back, it was really a great night. If I could change one thing, I should have busted out the red Boomboxery Brotherhood T-Shirt I got from Uncle Ed in Sorrento.

Oh well, next time!

Cool pics, HG2006! I'd love to take a gander through jaetee's record collection. Maybe one day I'll get to experience the Man Cave. :-) I also spotted some badges. What are those? :-P

Awesome pics, Frank! Thanks for posting them!

Yea, I dropped the ball and forgot to call Ed. He lives maybe an hour and a half north of here. My bad!

Yup! You got it! My dad got that from ubid.com six or seven years ago for $120 and gave it to me. It was a refurb unit and has worked fine all this time. Talk about a total parental hookup!

The only stipulation from him was that I would occasionally digitize an album for him!

Freddie, Ghettoboom is talking about coming up to Nashville sometime and dropping off some boxes for me to work on. Maybe we could all time it perfectly for a boombox menage. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi Oldschool & Fatdog-I'm only 2 1/2 hours away from Fatdog.
Unfortunately next weekend I have to go to northern Minnesota to work for a week to 10 days.
I'm available the last weekend in May Memorial day weekend or maybe tomorrow!!(Sunday)??
Let me know on this-I have a 8989 to fix up(belts only) and my M-70 needs to have the string put back on and adjusted.
I'm game but next weelemd I have to leave Sunday.
Good idea-GB. :-)
