Who couldn’t do with a bit of C64 remixes and SID chiptunes to take our minds off these troubled times? I know I could. After a bit of retail therapy, the podcast now has a portable studio setup. To celebrate, here’s a new episode for your listening pleasure.
On a lazy Sunday morning in December, what was supposed to be a quick microphone test ended up as an entire episode. Stay tuned to discover if a certain tune gets to close the show for the 7th time since 2005.
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.
