Episode 6 – PS1

U R NOT READY….er… E (some of you will see it and get it)…..but you will be after listening to these blasts from the 32-bit past! The first Sony Playstation (Also known as the PSOne or PS1,) had some of the greatest games to have been released during its generation, and with those stellar titles came music that would capture our hearts and engage our senses into overload. Mike and Justin help you return to the mid to late 90s with 10 tracks full of well known as well as obscure PS1 video game music to help you relive the days of turning your systems upside down when the discs read error popped up.

Episode 5 – An Evening with Coda

On today’s episode, XVGM Radio ventures into unknown indie territory when we interview video game music and chiptune composer stalwart artist, Coda. We’ve hand picked some truly amazing tunes from his blossoming career and hear about his progressive rock interests, how his appreciation and friendship with Jake Kaufman inspires him, and try to figure out how many deli meats can fit into a cockpit. Wait, what?! Strap yourselves in and get ready to appreciate some truly fantastic compositions from CODA.

Special thanks to Scarlet Moon Productions for the interview opportunity! Check them out at: http://scarletmoon.com/
