We have Darryl Still (Atari UK/Europe's marketing manager) on our podcast this week, he shares some great stories about the Jaguar from concept to launch and defending it in the press.  Plus, some great stories about the ST and Lynx.

Cool thank you, can`t wait to take a listen. Back in the day I always had the feeling that Darryl was fighting against the windmills in UK. Looking forward to hear him tell his part.

Wow, great interview.

Still remember fondly when Edwin (of Atari Lynx User fanzine) and me went to Atari HQ in Slough and meeting Darryl. He was very easy going, friendly, overall we had a great time there. Regrets, missed foto opportunities, should've taken a camera along.

'Enormous amounts, massive quantities of Atari JRs and Atari 7800s sold in the UK due to catalogues sales.'
