Managing Editor of LOADSTAR Disk-Mag Interview

Recommended Posts

Over the past 6 months I have had the incredible honor and privilege of corresponding with and interviewing Fender Tucker, the managing editor of Loadstar magazine from 1987-1999.
As many of you may recall, Loadstar was the longest running professionally published Disk-Mag that covered and supported the Commodore 64/128 scene. It started in 1984 and went all the way to 2007, believe it or not. And every issue was 100% created on Commodore 8-bit machines.
It's a very cool corner of the Commodore community not often talked about these days we shouldn't forget.
He's also selling his entire Loadstar Archive (hundreds of disk images, 1541 & 81, C64 and quite a few C128 disks) with PDFs of the newsletters, music files, and more. It's pretty cool and only $15.
