Join me as I embark on a mission to restore my Atari Video Music, Atari’s trippy music visualiser from 1977. In this 2-part special I’m going to be replacing the woodwork, designing an s-video output mod, and converting the device to run on a UK 230V power supply.

Thanks to John from Amigos Retro Gaming / This Week in Retro podcast for your voice acting contribution!

Also big thanks to h0ffman for allowing me to use his track “5k Reese” to demo:
