Episode 048: And then there was one

In return for your patience with my completely erratic publishing schedule here is a little something for your Christmas stocking. Sadly, the (huge) delay is partly caused by the podcast going back to its single-host roots, as Makke has had to cancel his co-host gig. That being said, here’s eight carefully selected tunes that should put a smile on your face – including one that’s become a regular fixture at this time of year. And a brief recap of what’s been happening in the world of C64-related music. Enjoy!

Bad News, Everyone!

As some of you might have seen on our twitter feed, Operation Fatherhood has forced Makke to shelve his co-hosting of the #C64 Take-away. I only learned this a week ago myself (not the fatherhood bit – that’s been out in the open for a while) – and the news was a bit of a shock, truth be told. Rest assured that there aren’t any complications or anything of the sort – it’s just eating up his spare time, which babies have a tendency to do. 😀

While I have managed to create the bulk of the show on my own in the past, I believe that Makke’s contribution has become an integral part of the podcast format since he joined up back in early 2009. Which makes it harder to go back to the old single-host formula. Sure, I might be able to get another co-host (although right now I have no idea who that would be) and set up a double ended recording to compensate for us being in different locations. But there’s something about being in the same room as your co-host that comes across in the final product.

Long story short, this leaves the podcast in the state that the old K Foundation poster referred to as a “major rethink in progress“.
