For my entire video game career, I've had an affinity for game music. As a kid, I was entranced by the melodic Nintendo music with it's catchy tunes and unrelenting charm. I would find myself humming along all the time to game music, often in uncomfortable social situations. As I've matured, I've begun to realize how video game music actively influences how I enjoy games.
I have another affinity, online broadcasting. I am a lover (and maker) of podcasts, and I want to be a more active part of the online media revolution, in whatever way I can. Tomorrow, I'm going to combine these two love-affairs into one, with my new online radio show: The Video Game Music Hour. Each week (hopefully) I'm going to dig up a selection of game tracks I love from the 1980's and 90's, and play some of those.
However, that's not all I am planning.
If you know of a great video game track that you want me to play, I plan for you to be able to call in on Skype. You can make a request of any track from the '80's-90's you want to hear- and I'll try to dig it up and play it. I hope to introduce people to interesting older music- and classics.
If you are interested the show will be on at 7 PM (Central Time) at: ustream.tv/channel/the-video-game-hour
You can call in, my Skype name is: Gamebeastiscool
Also, I plan to put the recorded show on Youtube.
All support is appreciated.
Tetris theme is going to be #1. End of story.
So, you won't be playing any current-gen pieces? Batman: Arkham City's main theme is amazing...
@GoldvsSilver in the interest of not getting in copyright trouble, I'm refraining from new stuff.
