My first computer was a Commodore PET which I got in the late 1970s. The PET stored programs on cassette tape, and over the years I amassed nearly 60 tapes containing hundreds of programs. A few years later I got a Commodore 64, which stored programs on disk, and eventually I ended up with about 350 disks containing thousands of programs.

Recently I used an XE1541 cable to transfer many of my PET and C-64 programs to my PC. I then ran them under the VICE emulator and recorded these movies with CamStudio.

Most of the PET programs shown here are from CURSOR magazine, a cassette-based publication that included a short newsletter with descriptions of the programs in that issue. These programs are from the late 1970s and early 1980s and are designed to run on an 8K PET, which makes them particularly retro-licious.

The C-64 programs are mostly early demos that showcase the C-64's audio and video features. Some were produced by Commodore while others were created independently. Most of them are from way before the demoscene years, which took demos to a whole new level.

I've only just begun making movies of my thousands of PET and C-64 programs so check back occasionally to see new ones as I add them. Unfortunately Youtube's compression is less than flattering so email me if you'd like a higher quality (and larger), uncompressed version of any of them.
