I could spend hours at this site. Check out Radio Shack Catalogs – Like ALL of them
I used to wait for the TV commercials heralding the arrival of the NEW RADIO SHACK CATALOGS (usually some time in the fall) which would usually have a coupon for a free plastic 4 or 5 cell D-battery flashlight. My friend Tad and I would ride our bikes to the store, get the Flashlight and the Catalog. The guys in the store viewed us as annoying kids, but what they didn’t realize was that by being nice to us, they were creating Radio Shack fans for life. A little short-sighted, but they were on commission, so I guess we were still just annoying kids.
The 1980 catalog has a TRS-80- computer for on $499.95. HUZZAH!
