  1. Strangely entertaining and funny; not sure if it was the way you read it or the fact that material from 1973, much like the clothes of that era, is just funny. I liked this.

  2. Thanks Jimbo, glad you enjoyed it.

    The guy reading is me, if I were born in 1950 in Mobile Al and moved to California early summer of 1973. just a few weeks prior to be a part of this new company. Its my second week there and I have been helping out where needed. They let me know about this idea for making the employee newsletter audio friendly, and I volunteer to do my part making it so. At this point I still have trouble pronouncing the original company name siz-a-gee but several people have let me know that it doesnt really matter as going forward we will just be Atari, a word meaning To take a position from the Game of Go. Its a fascinating time and a really groovy place to work. So many real people.
