   Europe's First Magazine for Personal Computers

PCW was founded by the  Angelo Zgorelec in 1978, and was the first microcomputer magazine in Britain. PCW’s first cover model, in February 1978, was the Nascom-1, which also partly inspired Zgorelec to launch the magazine. Its August 1978 issue featured the colour capabilities of the Apple II. PCW went monthly from the second edition. Zgorelec went into partnership with Felix Dennis who published his first issue in September 1979 before selling the title to VNU in 1982 The magazine was later owned by Incisive Media, which announced its closure on 8 June 2009 after 32 years.
We are avidly building this collection, as computing and the development of radio programming became entwined in the early 80's  as computerized programming, commercial scheduling billing and music scheduling rapidly took over station operations.
