Pocket Rockers


The Pocket Rockers format was a small, continuous-loop audio tape format that contained two songs each.  It was targeted primarily to children.

Here is a link to a page devoted to the Pocket Rockers format.

Following is a list of the Pocket Rockers tapes that were released.  (Note: I have not seen most of these, and have relied on a variety of sources in compiling this list.  So there is no guarantee that this is a complete list, or that all of those listed were in fact released.)
