The TDE Podcast Episode 6: Doug Wismer of Electrohome

Episode 06 of the Ted Dabney Experience podcast is out now! If you enjoy reading ArcadeBlogger.com, you’ll love the other project I’m involved with:

Electrohome supplied CRT monitors to all the big-name video arcade game manufacturers of the Golden Age, including Atari, Gremlin and Midway. Doug talks to us about how the company was saved from potential oblivion by arcade gaming; the pen, paper and handshake conception of Atari’s first vector monitor (over a pinball machine in Chuck E. Cheese) and the finer details of doing business with an early-Eighties JVC. Naturally, Paul asks about hot tubs at Atari.

Doug gave us a real leftfield insight into the supply chain world of the arcade manufacturing industry, and had many cool anecdotes and stories from the Golden Age of coin operated gaming.
