Hi everyone, I run a podcast regarding E.M. and bingo pinball.
I discuss mechanics, troubleshooting, cleaning, maintaining, playing and more.
Last year, I did an episode a day, bite-sized snippets of information regarding one of the above topics, a game-by-game review of all of the bingos that Bally produced between 1951-1980, and many in-depth interviews with notable personalities and interesting folks in the E.M. or bingo sides of the hobby. I’m up to episode 377 as of today, with a current bi-weekly release schedule.
I’ve been lucky enough to interview guests such as:
Steve Young - Pinball Resource
James Willing - the E.M. Dungeon
Jeffrey Lawton - author of ‘Bally Bingo Pinball Machines’ and ‘Bally vs. United - the Bingo Pinball War’
Sal Mazzeo - slot machine restorer and collector
Vic Camp - notable bingo player and E.M. collector
Gordon Hasse - pinball historian and woodrail aficionado
Phil Bogema - bingo pinball restorer and player
Hugh Kown - bingo pinball restoration expert and one of the most highly-regarded technicians
…and many more - no insult intended to any of my other guests if I didn’t list you - there’s a lot!
My goal is to further understanding and appreciation of electromechanical games and purely mechanical games. When I started the show, I saw lots of talk of people writing off E.M. games. Bingos have always been under-appreciated by the flipper community, and I want folks to at least understand some of the very unique and ingenious mechanisms involved in gameplay.
I do the show by myself, which makes scheduling easy, but I understand if it’s not your cup of tea.
If anyone has any feedback or requests for coverage on the show, I am more than happy to discuss.
You can reach me at email@example.com or call me on the ‘bingos line’ 724-BINGOS-1 with suggestions or requests for help.
Your emails or phone calls will not be used on the show without your permission.
Thanks for your attention, and I hope to hear from you soon!
