Episode 126 - VCFMW wrap-up & Glenside Picnic

We’re doing our wrap-up show discussing all the fun we had last weekend at VCFMW, hear from those that were there, and rejoice in the awesomeness of the event.   We'll also have live coverage from the Glenside Color Computer Club's (hosts of the Chicago CoCoFEST!) Pick Nick, so more Chicago area retro goodness!  Join us live today, if you were at the event, we'd love to have you join us on the panel to share your experiences.
