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:
- geoFolks – Meet some members of the GEOS clan whose creative applications can inspire GEOS users everywhere.
