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.
