 SOFTWARE TOOLWORKS' THE MIRACLE PIANO TEACHING SYSTEM(TM)
 ROLLS OUT TO RADIO SHACK STORES
 NOVATO, Calif., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The Software Toolworks (NASDAQ: TWRX), a leading publisher of education, entertainment, and edutainment software, announced the single largest Miracle Piano Teaching System(TM) distribution arrangement since the creation of the product.
 Radio Shack, a division of the Tandy Corp., carried the MS-DOS version of The Miracle(TM) in 750 stores during the 1991 holiday season. As a result of strong sales performance, Tandy will now carry The Miracle in all 4,600 Tandy-owned Radio Shack(R) stores and offer it to an additional 2,000 Radio Shack dealers.
 The Miracle will also be featured in Radio Shack's 1993 Electronics Catalog and will be highlighted in other promotional media through the fall, reaching tens of millions of potential consumers. In addition, Radio Shack will offer extensive product training which will include satellite television programming to ensure a high level of product knowledge at the retail level.
 "Tandy's support for The Miracle is the single most important news to our company since I've been with The Software Toolworks and it happened because The Miracle performed for Radio Shack and its customers last holiday season," said Bob Lloyd, president of The Software Toolworks.
 Bob Miller, vice president of merchandising at Radio Shack, said "The Miracle is a product ideally suited for Radio Shack, America's Technology Store(sm). It combines home entertainment and computer- assisted learning for the entire family." The Miracle
 The Miracle with its three components -- software with up to 1,000 piano lessons, a 49-key keyboard, and a cable connection to the user's personal computer or Nintendo Entertainment System(R) -- is the only interactive system of its kind available for Macintosh(R), Commodore Amiga(TM) and IBM(R) PC and compatible personal computers including Tandy(R) computers, as well as Nintendo and Super Nintendo Entertainment Systems(R) for people who want to learn to play the piano.
