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.

Radio OK Fred 15

It’s been another very long hiatus — obviously due to me breaking my spine — be the OK Fredders are finally back for a new episode of Radio OK Fred. It’s episode 15, and it’s our special Christmas show. Also, thanks to Djay — which is what I’ve been using at my PLAY events — this marks the first time we record a show live, which means we were able to prepare, record, and have it online all within 2-3 hours — for me, it was the editing that always killed me. So yes, apologies if we’re far from professional, but we’ll get better, I promise.

Below is the full rundown of what we played, as well as a link to the episode. Also, we have a new feed for the show now, so if you were subscribing to the old one, please make sure to switch.
