On the final day of the 8-Bit Symphony Pro kickstarter, at 83% funded with little under 5 hours left on the clock, I posted a message on twitter saying:
“If the 8-Bit Symphony Pro kickstarter funds, I solemnly vow to create at least two episodes of the #C64 Take-away before 2019 comes to an end. Think of it as crowdfunding the podcasts with all the proceeds going to professional symphonic recordings.”
And it did fund, so here we are. Episode 54. Whether or not you are one of the people who helped fund this because of my tweet – Thank you for being a part of this awesome community!
First episode in what feels like forever (according to Wolfram|Alpha it’s been 4 years, 5 months and 3 days). In return for your patience this episode clocks in at a little over an hour, so expect the usual C64-related music goodness, hand-picked for your listening pleasure. Apologies in advance for any mispronunciations I made on the show. And if I don’t sound as cheerful as usual, it’s because I was really focused on the recording process. 🙂
Thanks to everyone who kept the faith and stayed tuned over the years.
As mentioned on this episode, the podcast is back on iTunes after being removed for undisclosed reasons. So in order to help new people discover these great tunes, I’d really appreciate it if you rate and review the show on iTunes.
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!
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!
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!
