Thanks :)

I thought of Tandy to. They always did some interesting things back in the day. I used to stop in the Store in Burton in mid 90s on my lunch hour. Though I brought a midi cable from there which was faulty and they wouldn't give me a refund as I had ripped the bag when I opened it! Guy in shop said they cant resell it otherwise. Like why would they be reselling a faulty cable ?! Well I stopped going in after that. Still.. I always remember going in and buying those packs of 10 resistors "on a card" . Think I used to go in and buy like 20 different values / packs at a time. Always got strange looks from people ???

There's also this link http://www.tandycatalogues.co.uk but it appears to be offline since 2013 according the wayback machine, shame looks like it had 2 (maybe even 6) catalogues scanned and online.

Seems like the vintage catalogue links and website in the previous post belong to a guy called Darren Grant (who appears to have bought the rights to the Tandy name in the UK from RadioShack and merged his previous company ADSL Nation under the Tandy name).

Heart kinda feels sore after looking at things like this. I admired the video output of one of the Tandy computers and would play California Games on the big screen projector tv with friends. Always wanted a Tandy Sensation, too. My art teacher got one and was so happy lol he was always playing the included (I think it was Mozart or some symphony CD) that came with it when I was in class through those MPC speakers haha... good stuff.

I loved the fact that it was an all-in-one that it would allow me to watch TV on it, listen to CDs and connect any game console to play whatever all while having access to real computer games. Needless to say, I never got one. :( :lol:
