Episode 052

A full year later than originally planned, the podcast that refuses to go away no matter how many curveballs life throws at it returns. To compensate for the lack of recent outings, this one is a whopper containing a total of 15 tunes, all handpicked for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!

Comments disabled on older posts

Even though C64Takeaway.com has a pretty nifty anti-spam plugin installed, roughly 150 unwanted messages managed to sneak into the moderation queue over the past 30 days, and even more before that. So in order to save time on maintaining this site, comments on all past announcements have been disabled, and new posts (like this one) will now have comments disabled automatically after six months.

While it initially annoyed me no end that I have to limit your option to leave feedback via the site, I have also realised that the change will have little impact on real-life usage, since the vast majority of comments on older posts are from people asking when a new episode will be out. 😀 – Very rarely (if at all) has anyone left comments on an older post after stumbling upon this place via a search-engine or referral link somewhere.

On the plus side, this change leaves more time and mental energy to spend on something I’m trying to resurrect this winter. If all goes well it should pop up on your radar sometime before the holidays.

Episode 051: Has it been 30 years already?

Introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 1982, and available to the public in August of 1982 – it’s everyone’s favourite computer: The C64. To coincide with the “C64 Month” campaign (Twitter + Facebook), here’s my contribution in the form of a new episode of the C64 Take-away. As usual the mix consists of a set of great chiptunes and remixes, blended in with a recap of what’s been happening in the world of C64-related music. Enjoy!

Episode 050: Redefining ‘infrequent’ since 2005

Ho-ho-ho! Christmas comes a few days early this year. After passing my project manager exam on December 13th, I cleared the mountain of books and papers off my desk and started preparing this episode. In honour of this being the 50th show(!) here’s almost an hours worth of sonic delight – five remixes and five chiptunes, carefully selected for your enjoyment. And while the show doesn’t have a Christmas theme as such, the closing tune should be able to melt even the coldest of hearts and let the Commodore love flow freely. As usual mixed in with a brief recap of what’s been happening in the world of C64-related music. Enjoy!

Episode 049: Everybody set the 8-bit spirit free

Greetings programmes! After another massive delay caused by too much going on at work, causing me to relax (among other things) in front of the Xbox rather than sit down in front of the microphone every month or two, here’s the first episode of 2011(!). Hopefully making up for the radio silence with nine carefully selected tunes – including not one, but two classic remixes. As usual mixed in with a brief recap of what’s been happening in the world of C64-related music.
