    Last night Classic FM had a video game music special, and it was wonderful. Anyone interested can listen to it here.

    I heard bits and pieces of it yesterday. While I'm not as game-savvy as I used to be, it was an enjoyable show. Thanks for the link. :)

    I thought this was going to be about the music from the Sega Genesis and the like.

    Yeah, was much enjoyed from my sick bed. Brightened my mood for an hour or two.

    I was expecting more Genesis era too but then I listen to a lot of Sonic covers on youtube anyway.

    ^^ Not sure if we're on the same wavelength or not, I was thinking it was about classic FM (synthesis) video game music which put me in mind of the Genesis. I was reading classic "FM video game music" special and not "Classic FM" video game music special.

    I'm not familiar with Classic FM, sounds like I'm out of the loop. Not the first time...

    Classic FM is a radio station in the UK that plays Classical music. They have a "Saturday Night at the Movies" programme that this week did a special on video game music.

    Get well soon, Bob.

    I don't usually listen to Goodall's show (I only listen to the radio when I'm driving), but I did chuckle when I heard the show being trailed earlier in the week. The nice thing about Classic FM is their willingness to play all sorts of orchestral music, not just traditional classical music. Especially over the lunchtime request show, you sometimes hear stuff like Star Wars squeezed in between Mendelssohn and Schubert. The juxtaposition is quite entertaining, almost regardless of the content itself! :D

    Another get well soon :) I love classical/film scores and a friend introduced me to Goodall's show a few months ago. The Bond show was particularly fine. Can't say big fan of other Classic FM output though. A bit middle-England for me.
