This episode is part 2 of a 3-part series on the Tandy Color Computer, also known as the CoCo. I have special guest hosts to help me this month: John Linville and Neil Blanchard of the “CoCo Crew Podcast”. Join us as we discuss Coco tech specs, peripherals and pulling it out of the box.
I also go over my new acquisitions, a short overview of VCF Midwest 10 that occurred on August 29 & 30, tell you about upcoming vintage computer shows and cover some podcast feedback.
