Say, what's a "Marathon Boombox Demo"?

Ha! I guess we never explained that one. Bachmann came up with a lot of song ideas while he was living in a little apartment in Carrboro over a Greek restaurant called The Marathon. He recorded most of his ideas on a boombox. If you were born after, say, 1985 or so, you may not be familiar with the term "boombox." If you are not, it's a portable tape player/radio about the size of a briefcase that we used to cram full of batteries, and walk around with, listening to "Pac-Man Fever" and "Rapper's Delight."
