It is so funny. I've been looking for simple Independedt CD player, no need air-kind, since I always have memory problem, and having hard time to find what I liked. Recentry, a friend of mine, Margaret, just contacted me for their factory closing sale. What I really liked there was this Sony CD- Cassette tape player! Not just CD player, comes with cassette tape player!! I have to dig my old cassette tapes, that should be somewhere here. Feel like so nostalgic. I LOVE THIS PLAYER SO MUCH!! Thank you Margaret, Thank you, Kate!!
