Episode 037: In memory of Richard Joseph

On the afternoon of March 4th 2007, veteran composer Richard Joseph passed away, after a short battle with lung cancer. I had the good fortune of meeting Richard at Back In Time London in 2002, and he left a lasting impression – although we only talked briefly I have fond memories of a man who despite his status as a legend was the most down-to-earth chap you’d ever come across. Our thoughts go out to Richards friends and family.

Join in as Makke and I pay tribute with a podcast entirely dedicated to the works of Richard Joseph, both the way he created the tunes himself, and the way other people interpreted his work.

  1. I don’t understand why, but i can’t find this or the other recent podcast (#36) in Odeo. I can’t refresh it either, or at least i don’t know how to do so.

    I love your podcast, friend! I kept playing the recent episodes almost almost continuously.. well.. at least.. until i started playing the older ones ;).

    This brings back memories.. Especially when you start recognizing the music from demo or a game you used to break joysticks with ;).

    Take care and keep up your great work! I’m looking forward to hear more 🙂
