Episode 468 - Sharka Bytes!


We're joined by someone new this week - Sacha AKA Coffeehound RetroSharka! She's here to talk about one of favourite subjects here at BTTE Towers - computer games of the Microcomputer era! Spectrum, C64, even the BBC Micro, we'll talk about them all, with a few cameos from a few other characters! You think that there was a video game bust in the mid-80s - think again!
