In this episode George revisits his childhood by interviewing David Scarpa, the author of the book Beyond Playland. His family owned Playland arcade in North Lavallette NJ for almost 3 decades starting in 1957. The interview focuses primarily on the Arcade’s history and some of the Classic games from days gone by. There is very little pinball in this episode. They talk about the area and turn their attention to what happened to the games and how things have changed in the industry. Randy Senna (Randyland) purchased most of the older games and now has an arcade and soon to be museum in Wildwood, NJ featuring some of his collection. He also was featured in a Hoarders TV show and has numerous videos on YouTube. The discussion then turns to Seaside, Barnacle Bills, The Sawmill and Hurricane Sandy. If you grew up during this time vacationing in the area or curious how times have changed you will be entertained by his stories, views and perspective.
