Teletext R Podcast, 17 August 2020 – Chris Bell of Digitiser Fansite Super Page 58

Artwork by @Horsenburger

If you had to make a list of memorable teletext sections, you’d probably have Digitiser somewhere in your top 5. Today’s guest is, aside from Mr Biffo, perhaps the world’s most knowledgeable person on the subject of Digitiser. And today on this interview special of Teletext R, his specialist subject is Reversible Sedgewicks. Owner of the biggest Digitiser fansite on the web today, his name is Bellston, or to give him his full name, Chris Bell.

All music in this episode is from Mr Biffo’s freshly-released album Sound Footage, which is available on Bandcamp now. Opening theme is ‘Nautilus’ and the closing theme is ‘Are You a Baby?’
