This week on the podcast we look at the past, present, and possible future of music for our favorite little 8-bit computer system: The Commodore 64. We start with music composed for games from its original retail run, and end with music from new games developed by home-brew indie enthusiasts! We couldn't have covered so much about the system without the help of our friend and special guest: Michael Bridgewater! Not only does he join us to provide color on the hardware and tricks used to compose these tunes, but every track on today's episode was recorded direct from his original C64 hardware!
Rob and Pernell are back together in the studio, and ready to rock this podcast! This week's topic is "Memories", meaning anything that triggers specific memories for us, personal or gaming related. So this one gets a little heavy on the nostalgia. Pernell gets nostalgic for the old east coast Bemani scene, and Rob gets nostalgic for old audio formats.
