Told you the C64 Take-away would be back in February, didn’t I? The first show for 2008 features a bit of catch-up on what’s been happening in the world of C64 related music – including two new album releases, a hardware gizmo that will let you musician types use that sweet SID sound in your work, and a couple of upcoming live concerts. Plus of course, lots and lots of great tunes carefully selected for your listening pleasure.
