RUN: The Commodore 64 128 User’s Guide (September 1989)

RUN magazine was my favorite Commodore 64 magazine. By 1989 the Commodore 64 was certainly in decline but RUN was still going strong and would continue for a few more years. Advertising pages had declined significantly but all the content was still there. The September 1989 issue includes: Features
