This is a special interview-only episode. I’m very happy to announce that my special guest for this show is Don French, co-designer of the TRS-80 Model I computer and long-time Tandy employee. Don has a long and storied history with Tandy. The TRS-80 Model I, the machine that saved Tandy and spawned a long line of historically significant computers, was his brainchild. He worked closely with Steve Leininger to develop the Model I. In addition, you’ll hear that he worked with Bill Gates, Paul Allen and many other giants of the microcomputer industry. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I enjoyed talking with Don.
