ANTIC Interview 280 – David and Betsy Ahl, Creative Computing Magazine

David Ahl and Betsy Ahl, Creative Computing Magazine
Dave Ahl was the founder and editor-in-chief of Creating Computing Magazine, which was the first personal computer magazine. Betsy Ahl was editor of the magazine for nearly its entire run. Creative Computing was published starting in November 1974, was acquired by Ziff Davis in 1983, and ceased publication in December 1985.
In addition to Creative Computing, Dave and Betsy published a variety of other magazines including Sync (dedicated to the Timex Sinclair computers) and Creative Computing Video & Arcade Games Magazine. They also released a record album — First Philadelphia Computer Music Festival (1979), a board game called Computer Rage, and software for a variety of platforms under the Creative Computing Software label. Dave was author of BASIC Computer Games, the first million-selling computer book; plus its sequel, more BASIC Computer Games, and many other early computer books.
After Creative Computing, Dave was editor of Atari Explorer magazine for five years and he started Atarian magazine in 1989. Later, he published Military Vehicles magazine.
This interview took place on April 3 and 4, 2013, when I was doing research for a book about the first personal computer magazines. Although I’ve decided not to write the book, I am publishing the interviews that I did for them. The other major interview was with Wayne Green: there’s a link to that interview in the show notes.
The first part of the interview took place in the bar at the Heathman Hotel in Portland, Oregon. (There’s some ambient background noise and music — remember, this recording was meant to be my notes for a book, so a little background noise wasn’t an issue.) The second part of the interview was recorded in my dining room, a much quieter atmosphere.
The day before this was recorded, Dave and Betsy attended a grand opening get-together of tech luminaries at the Living Computer Museum in Seattle, Washington. This event is mentioned several times during the interview.
A full transcript of this interview is available at Also, there are many links to related articles, interviews, and magazine scans in the show notes at
Teaser quote: “When I started Creative Computing, I mean there weren’t even personal computers at that point. I was convinced, I guess, that they would come about. I had no idea that it would be three months later that the Altair came about.”
Outro music: Scott Joplin’s Maple Leaf Rag, played on an RCA COSMAC by Joe Welsbecker on the First Philadelphia Computer Music Festival record (1979.)

The Toys R Us Report Ep.117 : A Double Hunnam! Lost City Of Z and King Arthur plus a Return To The Lebowski-Verse?

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with a long meandering discussion about how sick I feel and how bad I also feel for missing a big wrestling show. I’m dumb but don’t worry, I feel better now.

Then we move onto what is essentially The Main Event of the show, a double-Hunnam! It was a week were I saw two Charlie Hunnam movies in a row! One was called The Lost City Of Z and the other one was a flick known as King Arthur! I dug it and I’ll tell you why.

Then during the final segment of the show we go on about some TV Shows, a movie that returns us to the Big Lebowski Universe and a bunch of other stuff. I wasn’t feeling great and sort of just rambled on and on.. It was sort of fun, I guess.

Make sure to hop on over to Support The Report and check out how you can get the ISR Supertape VHS Tape! While helping to support the show. Man, we need all the help that we can get.

Also hop on over to The ISR Superstore and take care of some of your Retro Junk Shopping needs while also supporting The Toys R Us Report.
