The CSP is back & taking you with us to the early 80′s as we reminisce on the awesome library of the Atari 2600! The Atari 2600 VCS was a staple in the homes of nearly every child of the early 80′s up until Nintendo & Sega came along. The second half of the show, the crew talks about video-game themed cartoons and TV shows, such as Pac-Man, Saturday Supercade and Captain N. So plug in your joysticks and paddle controllers and join the fun!
