150 – Used Electronics Truck

October 30, 2010

One of the many kinds of blue trucks that regularly go rolling through my neighborhood (and likely nearly all Korean neighborhoods).  This one, from what I can understand, is offering cash for used electronics, such as computers, refrigerators, air conditioners, and pianos.  As I recorded this, I was walking and the truck was moving, so it’s kind of interesting to hear how the sound changes as the truck drives down the narrow streets.  (150 – Electronics Truck)

Recorded 10/3/10, 1:48PM (local time)

    They had something similar in Egypt. People would go around with pushcarts yelling “Bikya” and would take just about any junk you gave them. They’d sell it to someone who would restore it, or recycle it if it was beyond repair.

      Yeah, I heard that a few times. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to record that one.
