Many, many thanks to Zerbinator for his continued support. His encouragement and expertise are very much appreciated by me. You can find all of his fun-to-listen-to podcasts here, including my favorite, “Please Stand By.” And I’d also like especially to thank him for providing the opening and closing theme music for Tube Tunes; all of his fantastic music can be found here. And, again, thanks are in order for him for providing TUBE TUNES with the “We’ll Be Right Back” drops heard during the podcast. Thanks, Burford.

I would also like to again thank Rob “Flack” O’Hara and Sean Johnson for adding TUBE TUNES to The Throwback Network. It’s a great place to find just about any retro-themed podcast you can think of. Please check out the network here.

I also need to thank the Free Music Archive for the following musical artists and songs that were used in this episode under the Creative Commons License: “Jingle Time” and “Smiling Cars” by David Szestay, “Maybe” and “So Far So Close” by Jahzzer, and “Little Tomcat (Instrumental Version)” by Josh Woodward.

Finally, my thanks to Ferg of The Atari 2600 Game by Game Podcast. His inspiration and dedication to covering every game cartridge ever made for the Atari 2600 (I think over 1000 of them!) is what gave me the courage to begin this podcast. And his continued support and promotion of TUBE TUNES on his excellent podcast is greatly appreciated by yours truly. Please, check out his podcast, even if you’re not an Atari 2600 collector; or at least visit his website here.

ANTIC Interview 273 – Bob Woolley, Atari 1200XL hardware hacker

Bob Woolley, Atari 1200XL hardware hacker

Bob Woolley has been upgrading and modifying Atari 8-bit computers — primarily the 1200XL — since it was released. His hardware products include video output improvements, keyboard repairs, built-in CompactFlash cards, a dual-ANTIC computer, and a parallel bus interface for the 1200XL. Bob was editor of Atari Classics magazine from approximately 1994-1997. He is still active in the San Leandro Computer Club and on the AtariAge forums.

This interview took place on March 14, 2017.

“I actually use the Atari as my computer. I couldn’t write any code on one of my PCs. Whereas if I’m going to write code, I do it on the Atari.”

The Toys R Us Report Ep.112: Who’s Who In The DC Comics Universe: Killer Frost plus King Kong

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with a neat scene where me and Iceberg 13 play Burger-Time on The Jupiter Bases’ new Multicade. You don’t want to miss Iceberg’s tips for success at the game. Dude is a great video gamer.

From there we move onto At The Movies where I share my thoughts on King-Kong: Skull Island and right after that it’s the meat and potatoes of the show.. Who’s Who In The DC Comics Universe: Killer Frost. In that segment you learn everything you’d want to know about Firestorm Villian and CW’s The Flash team Doctor, Killer Frost. It’s both fun and informative..

In the final segment I breakdown a fun giveaway we’re doing where you can retweet the link to this episode over on the official IseeRobots Radio Twitter account for a chance to win a sweet pair of Walking Dead Minimates!

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.
