The exhibition was on display in the Bóveda from the 1st until the 5th – that’s the tunnel lane running beneath Salobreña church, more or less – which was very popular with the locals and visitors alike. It has since been moved to the Municipal Library.
The exhibition is a tribute to this great invention that, for the first time, allowed you to take your music collection and play it outside your home, as you walked a long. OK, who didn’t have one of those suitcase record players? But you still had the problem of plugging it in, unlike the cassette machines, which ran on batteries… smartie pants!
I actually found a small ghetto blaster recently that has a tape deck incorporated along with the CD player so I snapped the blighter up for all my old tapes! Admittedly, it chewed the first one up, but hey!
