Today, July 1, marks the 40th anniversary of the Sony Walkman.

Who had one?

My first portable Walkman-like player was a Sanyo. I was probably in 4th grade when I got it... I was always envious of my friends that had a Walkman with orange foam headphones ;-)

Somewhere in my stash of old gear I have have a yellow Sony "Sport" Walkman that spent hours upon hours with me at the Gym. Never let me down.

My first and only was a Panasonic unit, it got me through my junior and senior years of HS. This reminds me of my very first audio upgrade, ditching the included 'phones and getting a better pair.
