Diggin’ in the Carts, the Radio Show

Remember the fantastic Diggin’ in the Carts documentary web series about Japanese game music? Well, it continues, in the form of a weekly radio show on RBMA Radio, hosted by Nick Dwyer, who¬†was also behind the web series. I haven’t listened to it yet, but looking at all the episodes that have been produced so far (and thankfully all archived on the site), it continues to be a treasure trove of interesting coverage on Japanese makers of music for games, with each episode accompanied by a terrific¬†selection of tracks.

All that classic music you’ve heard in Taito games? It was created by Zuntata, and the great news is that 114 albums of its game music can be found on iTunes — and more importantly, available to stream through Apple Music. I don’t tend to listen to game music outside of the context of playing games, but I love that this stuff is made available. Thanks to Simon Carless for pointing out this post, which is based on this announcement — and if you’re wondering where to start in terms of listening, here are a bunch of reviews.
