Bonus Track – My Year as a Paperboy

Hi there, here’s my first Bonus Track episode about working as a paperboy back in the 80s. The inspiration for this was an episode of Klickitcast, which is a podcast about Beverly Cleary books. In one of her early books, Henry Huggins has a paper route and it reminded me of my own paper route. One thing I had wrong was that the News Tribune merged with the Home News, not the Courier News. Thank you all again for your kindness and for listening, I hope you enjoy these bonus tracks.

Floppy Days 71 – Brian Bagnall, Commodore: A Company on the Edge

Interview with Brian Bagnall, Author “Commodore, A Company on the Edge”

Welcome to the Floppy Days Podcast, where old computers survive to tell another tale. My name is Randy Kindig. In the previous couple of episodes, I covered the history of the Vic-20 computer with the help of Neil Harris, Brian Bagnall, and Michael Tomczyk. Although I used some audio clips from each of those gentlemen to walk through the history timeline, I actually have a full-blown interview with each that I want to share with you over the span of three episodes. I’ve already published the interview with Michael Tomczyk, leader of the Vic Commando Team and assistant to Jack Tramiel. Next up, I am publishing the interview with Brian Bagnall, author of the book “Commodore, A Company on the Edge” and who is working on the follow-up book “Commodore: The Amiga Years”.

Before we get to that, I will very briefly cover upcoming shows and a bit of feedback, but then we will get right into the interview with Brian Bagnall.

Classic Episode Repost: Power Records Playhouse Ep.5 Davy Crockett Plus Much More!

Hey guys! This week we’re all away from The Station so our offering to you is a classic from the past. This is one of my favorite episodes of All The Times. You have Power Records Playhouse which is super fun AND A.B Silver. Believe it or not, I miss that guy sometimes… Here’s what I wrote about the episode at the time.. Enjoy!

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week! I really mean it this time. It’s super fun. This week we take a listen to a sort of weird western tale of bear hunting and grinning, Davey Crocket! It’s totally weird dude. Iceberg has some real issues with the dudes attitude. Give it a listen. It’s sure to cause a chuckle. I hope so anyhow.

Then it’s on to At The Movies where we talk on Richard Linklater’s latest, Everybody Wants Some. It’s an 80’s Baseball Flick with a great soundtrack.

After that the show winds in with a Toys R Us Report where we talk about some Zootopia Toys, The Flea Market, The Supergirl Season Finale and Jonah Hex on Legends Of Tomorrow.

We picked up a new Patron this week! That’s always fantastic. Dude has a real fun twitter HERE! Make sure to hop on over and give him a follow. I do. He also has a fun website which you can find HERE At TapesFromTheCrypt.com

It’s a great show like always, Make sure to tell a friend and make sure to stop by SupportTheReport.com and check out how you can get the ISR Supertape VHS Tape! It’s totally worth it! Just do it already!
