Ralf Homann_Chuck'n'rem Digital Folklore (Audio)
Oct 03, 2008
From Ralf Homann: "Instead of serious talks or clever conducted interviews, this upcoming episode of The Monoshow hosted by Ralf Homann will celebrate fabulous sounds of the early home computer software Basicode. In the '80s, before www, Basicode was used in some highly developed countries to broadcast software via specific FM radio shows (e.g. BBC, Dutch Public Radio, or East German Radio). Listeners could record the software by compact cassette or datasette and upload to their computer for early gaming or very serious applications like arranging addresses alphabetically. Vinyl-stored software was also available. Please chuck your datasette drive and start from scratch: Monoshow will provide some Basicode games and important surplus noise.
