Tuesday 13 January 2009
It begins with an interview because, hey, we don't let just anyone guest on One Life Left, much less give them the coveted title of OLL's Resident Film Expert. It's a formality, though, and post-theme we welcome our new colleague: spoiler warning! It's Joe Cornish, the tall half of TV / Radio / Multimedia's Adam & Joe. O. M. G!
Aside from the special guest star it's business as usual this week -- music, news, reviews, and one brand new feature that seems to work out pretty well. It's probably best you just listen, really. Oh! And if this is your first One Life Left here are some primer notes (there's a more detailed history in the About section).
-- We broadcast across London on the brilliant Resonance FM live every Monday evening, then we podcast the show the day after. We are Ste, Simon and Ann. Hi!
-- We're a radio show about videogames but not like that. You should be able to enjoy One Life Left even if you haven't picked up a joypad in weeks, months, years or ever. Um, that's our intention, anyway.
-- We mix inane chat with music that sounds like videogames and features from brilliant regular contributors, including Craig 'The Rage' McClellan (our resident gaming poet) and Derek Williams (a market-stall trader in Doncaster who plays a synth and tells us what's been selling this week).
-- We've been doing this for nearly three years, we welcome (and encourage) listener contributions. You can join our growing guerilla army in our Facebook group, on our forum, or by subscribing to our podcast on iTunes for free. Please do that.
Here's a link to the start of Season 4 so you can catch up.
Music in #89:
Tetra Star -- Robots Need Love Too
MC Chris -- Nrrrd Grrrl (Schizmo's Chiptune Remix)
Nullsleep -- Salvation for a Broken Heart
and Taliah, of course.
Download the MP3 of #89 directly here. And see you next week when we'll be joined by another brilliant guest. Who? There's a clue in the show. Jeu Fini!
