Assorted Computer Magazines from the 80's/90's

As the world moves ever forward and new technological breakthroughs enable us to experience our music and video on ever smaller and better devices, I want to pause and take a look back at some old equipment / magazines that I have here, mostly lying in cupboards, wardrobes, in the attic and even under the bed. The items on display are from my own collection however I am on the lookout for our listeners to send in their own images too for display here.



During the early 1980's I was the proud owner of a Sinclair ZX81 BASIC home computer, with an external 16k of RAM... during this time I used to buy some computer magazines to learn how to program in BASIC and also to read about new computers.  I enjoyed reading and keeping these magazines and even today, almost 40 years later I still have my collection of magazines.  here are some photos of the good ones, others have torn covers so I didn't take photos of those.
