Technology changes and improves with time.

We used to have a more modernized version of that telly. Ours was with a very sensitive touch button for changing chennels and if you shut the right door the telly went off. We also had d panasonic video machine that was a big as a photocopying machine.

Now 3D and HD tellies are here. Nawa!

Only GOD knows what will become of our present tellies in the future.

Old school swags. Walkmans were the smart phones of the past. so many were stolen, borrowed and never return.

and to save battery we rewind the tape using pencils. Nothing like vinyl scratches or CD skipping. If a tape went bad we repaired it our self, edited it with cellotape and if we got bored of a collection we simply dubbed on it. Bootlegging era. I remember owing WOW mix tapes, Freshwave mix from ojuelegba and the other guy at Yaba (cant remember) and Jimmy jart tapes from Obalende.

A GOOD mix required a good tape. The ultimate being Denon Chrome Tapes!

Old school baby.

Old school baby.

We used to call that "surgery". My brother was the chief surgeon. Our implements were pencils, biros, cellotape and razor blades.

I also remember that there were these gigantic cartridges. The radiogram and the stereo-set in my brother's room had cartridge players.

At least you had a television. Growing up in Nigeria, we watched a radio...mainly because my dad had forbidden us to touch it.

Then came the ultimate sound box; 5 CD Changer, one vinyl player, 2 tape players, radio tuner, amplifier and equlizer with 4 huge speakers.

eagle,eye:
I can remember when our own started giving wahala.... it will up its volume without anyone touching it. Then if you want to bring down the volume you will slap the TV on top or by the side.
If there was a visitor and the volume raises by itself, my sister will or any older sibling will call me (being the last) I will stylishly go close to the TV and slap it without the visitor being the wiser. And if you look for my trouble I will simply close the doors to the TV.

grin grin yeah we used to slap ours too. And my dad would lock the TV door to keep us away from it, but we would unlock it with a nail that was hammered flat at one end.
On hearing popsy coming, we would quickly lock the TV and pretend as if we had been good kids all day. grin
We also had a pendulum clock. When we don't feel like going to school (primary 4 afternoon session) we would climb up and catch the pendulum to a halt. When daddy returns at about 4 pm and is mad why we didn't go to school, we would point to the clock and say its not yet time grin grin

And I remember the video games. We had this binatone console (late '70s/early '80s). The only game we had on it was tennis (it was in black and white). You watched a white dot go back and forth over a net.

Then we got this atari console (early/mid '80s). I loved it! We had "Maze Craze", "PacMan", "Spiderman" (which was my favourite) and a "Superman" game that nobody understood.
