Into The Vertical Blank : Generation Atari show

Summary: In the 80's we sold all of our Atari 800 discs and lost all of our youthful programs BASIC programs and creative output forever.  Or so we thought.A few weeks ago we discovered a lost "treasure":   an audio tape from 1984 that we never remembered recording of us using one of our programs.  With the help of musician Tony Longworth, we embarked on quest to plumbs the depths of this computer audio ephemera, the Pokey audio chip and how it was the cornerstone of much of the Atari "Into The Vertical Blank" experience. Features a remix by Tony Longworth. Written, edited, produced by Steve Fulton, Jeff Fulton  Branding by Daryl Litts Music "Pokey Remix" by Tony Longworth .
