Episode 24 – An Atari 8-bit Family Affair

Turn your POKEY up to 11! It’s time to rock out with some top drawer rippers from the Atari 8-bit family of computers. They may not have been able to set the world alight like the Commodore 64 and NES did in the 1980s, but these machines definitely have a curious place in gaming history, and one that is worth exploring!

Episode 23 – Sonic the Hedgehog in the 1990s

I’m joined by Chris Machell to cover some top drawer jammers from the Sonic the Hedgehog games of the 1990s! With the enduring popularity of the original 2D Sonic titles in the world of retro gaming, it’s easy to take their soundtracks for granted, so we’ve picked out some superlative individual tracks – including classics and deeper cuts – to demonstrate the scope of what is among Sega’s most important contributions to the world of VGM!
