What's on this tape

Post by Symoon » Fri Jul 10, 2009 5:15 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone know for sure what's on this tape?

This "Oric retailer cassette" is being sold on Ebay, auction ending in 2 days...
I wonder if it's just the Oric-1 demo?

Probably an in-store demo. Several manufacturers had them. I remember the morning ritual in the shop I worked in, it was all about going round the demo machines loading these cassettes.
