I can't Live Without My Radio!

In the early 80's & 90's the Box was a staple in Hip Hop.(LL did a song praising his Radio!)If you went to any park,corner, or neighborhood and heard music I bet it was coming from one or a few large Box's. For the ill informed a Box is a large radio. Photographer Lyle Owerko recently compiled a series of photographs which document numerous different boomboxes. The boombox on the shoulder would become an image ingrained in the minds of many for generations to come. Fifteen different boomboxes are seen from popular brands to the now defunct unknown brands. Check it out over at, click Portfolios and then The Boombox Project.
