The Sears Compact Stereo Christmas Commercial

I am not sure I would be as bold as these kids if I came across my Sister’s Christmas present before she did. Probably because I thought they would kill me if I messed with their stuff. My one Sister did get a stereo for Christmas one year and she was so happy because it had a cassette player and not an 8 Track. I remember thinking, how am I going to rock out to Disco Duck on this thing without the 8 Track player. I soon learned that a cassette deck, especially one with the ability to record, was a powerful thing.
