My family was lucky enough to have a Telstar. Watching the commercial still kind of gives me the same chills that I get the first time I saw it played. I couldn’t believe I could control what was on the TV. Thank you, Connecticut Leather Company.
Welcome to the Retroist Colecovision Podcast. Today’s show is about the too short lived video game console, the Colecovision. I kick off the show talking about how I almost got a Colecovision when I was a kid by accident. Then I talk about the Coleco company and how it got its start. How it got on the road to making the Colecovision, some first hand accounts of Colecovision usage and its ultimate demise. I also briefly touch on Coleco in the post “vision” years.
