Supercollectors: Boomboxes

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

LL Cool J once proclaimed “I can’t live without my radio.” It was an ode to the massive, but portable, AM/FM/cassette players of the 1970s and ‘80s. Today, photographer Lyle Owerko still can’t live without boomboxes. He owns more than 50 of them, as documented in the book “The Boombox Project: The Machines, the Music and the Urban Underground.” He joins us to take your calls, in the latest installment of Supercollectors.
