Episode 27 -  The First Tandy Computers


In this episode, the Trash Talkers discuss a little known time in the history of Tandy Radio Shack computing.  There was a short period just before and after the release of the TRS-80 Model I in 1977 when Tandy sold many different microcomputers, from Altairs to Vectors, under the Tandy Computers brand.  Later in the episode, we interview one of the key players of the original Tandy Computers division, former Tandy Radio Shack senior manager, Joe Sigler.
