Vintage Audio Art

My wife picked up a pair of pajamas for our seven-year-old at Target today and I just had to share. It also started me thinking. 

The prevalence of vintage audio and nostalgic technology indicates a longing for simpler,  non-digital times. For me, surrounding myself with some of the familiar technology of my youth - vinyl and record players, rotary dial phones, standard table radios, cassette and reel-to-reel tape decks, helps me to stay connected to my past and therefore appreciate where I am now. Our house if filled with nostalgic items, of which my HiFi collection is just a sampling.

What other ways has vintage audio entered our modern culture?
