Welcome friends to the 17th Diary of an Arcade Employee Podcast. For this show I discuss Williams Electronic’s 1982 arcade classic “Joust”. In this episode I do not have any vintage commercials to share as I am fortunate enough to have something far more awesome, audio featuring Lonnie “Lon” McDonalds from when he visited the Arkadia Retrocade to roll our Joust machine to Ten Million points, making it the 106th Joust cabinet that he has done this on.
If you have any suggestions for future games to cover or comments on the show itself you may email them to me at VicSage@Retroist.com. You can also contact me on Twitter
and of course on
