I talk with Ava about Pop-A-Card, the first game I purchased, and the machine that brought me my love of repairing and playing Gottlieb machines (all eras) and EMs and Bingos!

Mar 30, 2015

I talk to Steve Smith and give him wide berth to tell his view of how we met and how I fell in love with bingos.  He discusses various topics, including differences between flipper vs. bingo pinball, playing on location as a kid, and how he got his first pinball.

 

Forgive sound quality - I was sitting too far from the mic and didn't notice.

Describing how to use the schematic for Pop-A-Card to troubleshoot both a scoring and a lamp problem.

Proper cleaning and adjustment allow for operation of the next higher score reel.

Mar 24, 2015

Discussion of hugely popular baseball-themed games from the 50s and 60s.

 

I'll leave discussion of 1930's and 40's games for another episode.

Big thanks to the support of two of my favorite pinball podcasts - The Pinball Podcast with Don and Jeff and The Spooky Pinball Podcast, specifically the EM Dungeon segment.

Thanks fellas!

One ball horse racing games were made by Bally and were around for over a decade before the first bingo.
