Join Kingy and Ric in this epic episode where the lads share their memories and chosen games in this exciting 8-bit era.  They mainly focus on the micro-computers of this period; if Commodore, Sinclair, Atari, Acorn and Amstrad floats your boat, then this is the episode for you. Expect gaming anecdotes, the bad humming of tunes and camaraderie driven banter.
