The Generation Gap – 40 years of the Sony Walkman.

In this PodCast Clive & Chloe look back at the Sony Walkman which was launched in the UK 40 years ago in 1980 (well before Chloe was born). But the impact it had on the way people listen to music was immense and far reaching, leading  directly to the iPod and now music stored on phones and streaming services. It also made headphones and ear phones common everyday objects rather than things only used by WW2 radio operators in or strange radio nerds!
