The BBC Micro, Part 3 with Daniel Jameson
Hello, and welcome to episode 102 of the Floppy Days Podcast for December, 2020. I just love these old machines and love to learn and talk about them. The year is 1981 and we are talking about the legendary BBC Micro or Beeb as it’s affectionately known. This is the final episode on this incredible machine, where we will be covering Ads and Appearances, Modern Upgrades, Emulators, Buying One Today, Community, and current Web Sites.
Again, as with the last episode, since the BBC Micro is a British machine I thought it only right that my co-host for these episodes should be someone from the UK. Daniel Jameson, a prominent member of the stardot forums, graciously agreed to help me with this and provide the “color” commentary during this episode. I think he adds a lot to the show.
Before getting into the details of the Beeb, I will talk a bit about new acquisitions and what I’ve been up to, a very brief mention of any upcoming shows, and then right into the meat of the episode.
