Hot CoCo

Anthony Stramaglia promised Tandy Color Computers, and he sure delivered. 

“In the late 1970s and early 1980s, the home computer market was filled with 6502-based offerings. But in 1980, Tandy Corporation threw their own hat in the home computer ring and offered a Motorola 6809E-based micro called the Radio Shack Color Computer — affectionately known as the CoCo. It developed a devoted following, and as a result, Tandy released two more generations, the Color Computer II in 1983 and III in 1986. A low-cost entry-level “little brother” called the MC-10 was also released in 1983. I will exhibit all three generations, an MC-10. and a variety of peripherals, games and other applications.”
