Retro

Retro (Host of The Electron Show) is a living, breathing encyclopedic techno-geek that embraces the new while building upon the proven. Some say he came to this planet by bailing out of a damaged space craft just before it crashed in New Mexico and was released by the authorities after agreeing to share the technology behind the solid state transistor. A true believer in time travel, electrostatic fields and lines of magnetic flux.
