Silverball Chronicles Ep 2: Stern Electronics…No, Not That Stern

Silverball Chronicles w/ David Dennis and Ron Hallett

Episode 2: Stern Electronics… No, Not That Stern

Before Stern Pinball Inc., which dominates the pinball landscape today, there was Stern Electronics, our second episode’s topic. We cover where Stern Electronics came from, Sam and Gary Stern’s early years, Dave mispronouncing names, the change from electro-mechanical pinball to solid state, the sketchiness around that transition, legendary designer Steve Kirk, Stern’s wild art, and the death of Stern Electronics.

As always we love to hear from you. We can always be reached at
