Bob Brodie: User Group Manager for Atari

Hi and welcome to another special interview edition of Antic the Atari 8-bit computer podcast.  My name is Randy Kindig and I'll be providing the interview questions for this episode.  I'm extremely pleased to provide this interview with a name well-known in the Atari community: Mr. Bob Brodie.  Bob worked for Atari as User Group Manager and later Director of Communications from 1989 to 1994.  Bob was directly involved in many of the Atarifests in that timeframe and I recall personally meeting him at an Atarifest in Indianapolis.  I think you'll find that he has many interesting stories and perspectives concerning his time working for the Tramiels and even a story involving an Atari 1450XLD.  I personally want to thank Bob for the time he spent talking with me, even calling me back when he remembered additional information or stories he thought might interest everyone.  Bob is a classy guy and I enjoyed talking with him immensely.

This interview took place on February 17, 2016.


“Oh, about 6 ½ feet up in the air, I see a 1450XLD, unboxed, just sitting there!”

Excellent interview! This is the sort of thing I'd hoped/hope to feature on my site. How do you find these people? Or do they find you?
