The TDE Podcast Episode 6: Doug Wismer of Electrohome

Episode 06 of the Ted Dabney Experience podcast is out now! If you enjoy reading, 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.

You can check it out on our website here.

We can also be found on all the usual Podcast hosts including:
