Welcome to part 2 of the now 3 part episode covering the Atari 400 & 800 computers.  This episode will cover Web sites, emulation, books, software, magazines, tech specs, and much more.  I’m very happy to have pretty much the entire Atari 8-bit podcasting group as special guest hosts helping me cover these topics.  This includes Wade from Inverse Atascii, Rob of Player/Missile, Jack of RCR, Kevin from Antic, and Brad from Antic.  We also have memories from Bill of Antic.  Enjoy!!

Hello, welcome to the Floppy Days Podcast.  My name is Randy Kindig and this a special interview show to help get the word out about an upcoming event: Vintage Computer Festival Southeast.  This will be the third iteration of this event and I talk with Earl Baugh, of the Atlanta Historical Computing Society.  He tells us all about the event, including special guest speakers that will be there, exhibits, gaming areas, a workshop where you can learn to solder and much more.  If you can make it to Roswell, Georgia, the weekend of May 2 & 3, 2015, I highly recommend that you drop in and enjoy the show.

Hello, welcome to Floppy Days Episode #34.  This is a special bonus episode and the topic of this show is the upcoming (as of this podcast) 2015 24th Annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFest on April 25 & 26 at the Heron Point Convention Center in Lombard, IL.  I interview Bob Swoger, secretary of the Glenside Computer Club, which sponsors the show.  He talks all about the show and he gives the scoop about what you can expect to see there.  Although the intent of this episode was to primarily cover the CoCoFest, it turns out that Bob has a very interesting and storied history with vintage computers.


One final note: The "Man from Canada" mentioned by Bob several times is Markus Blumrich of Grandora, SK, Canada.


I hope you enjoy it.
