The longer you live, the more things you see, and that's what GamerDude is talking about in this episode.  He talks about the innovation of the transistor radio and how it made music and entertainment portable. He talks about listening to records when he grew up, from vinyl LPs to the little 45s, and his father's old 78s. He remember when cassette tapes came onto the scene, and how they led to the development of the Walkman. He talks about recording the audio on television shows with a cassette recorder before VCRs made it possible to record the actual show. He remembers the "fun" of programming a VCR, and the actual fun of learning how to create a program that made a pixel of the Starship Enterprise sail across the screen of his old Commodor 64. And he talks about how eager he is to see what the future holds, given what he's already seen in his life.
