The Tandy Color Computer 2 is a circa 1986 computer sold by Radio Shack. I acquired one in late 2015 as I felt nostalgic about the computer I started programming with back when I was 9. One January night in 2016 I sat down and wrote my first substantial BASIC code on the TRS-80 in over 25 years. I just had an itch to make it play the Star Wars theme and so that's what I did.

I used sheet music for a piano and typed the code in by hand on the Color Computer 2 and recorded the execution through a VCR connected to my modern computer. (I was unsuccessful in saving my work but I included screenshots in the video if you want to check out the code).
