KansasFest 1992 celebrity roast

Posted Fri, May. 14th 2010 in News

Antoine Vignau of Brutal Deluxe Software recently unearthed a lost classic: a recording of the fourth annual A2-Central summer conference — aka KansasFest 1992. The video was originally assembled by Steve Disbrow, publisher of GS+ magazine, and opens with Tom Weishaar’s telephone interview of Steve Wozniak, commemorating the 15th anniversary of the Apple II’s release. Much of the remaining video is dedicated to the Friday evening formal dinner, including the annual “Tie One On” contest and the celebrity roast, in which “amusing stories, anecdotes, and just downright falsehoods” are told about Roger Wagner.

Now you too can relive this historic occasion, as Antoine has made this video available online. The entire film runs two hours and 17 minutes, is divided across 16 YouTube videos, and can be found in this playlist:



This video is one of many multimedia recordings of KansasFests past, linked to from our photo and video gallery.

It’s amazing to see that so many traditions have stayed alive longer than its 1992 participants could’ve imagined — KansasFest, the tie contest, celebrity roasts, and more. You too can be a part of history at KansasFest 2010. Register today!
