I was clearing some old clothes out of my cupboard recently and found a toy that I got when I was younger and for some reason had never thrown out.
I loved listening to music from a young age and was probably only three or four when I was given “Mr.D.J.” which is a little radio with only one very “tinny-sounding” speaker but what made this thing amazing in the 80s was the fact it danced and mouthed the words to whatever was playing at the time!
I decided to put some batteries in it and low and behold it still worked! The aerial is broken but it can still pick up some radio stations, but I noticed a line-in jack on the back of it and tried connecting my iPod.
Now I have the most retro 80s iPod dock possible …
