On Mondays at 5, I host a show called “Life’s a Game” at Wired Radio.
There’s two parts to it, basically:
1. I play music I like, that isn’t commonly heard, and occasionally, relate to videogames.
2. I talk about videogames.
This was the first show of the new year, and while it didn’t go off with the bang it should have done, it’s a very competent return, which I couldn’t have done without the wonderful people at wired radio, and also my producer Natalie Preddie, who also guested on the show this week. This week’s show is named after Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, one of the worst films/sequels ever, with one of the best subtitles ever.
Before my show, at 4pm, my friend Alexandra McLoughlin presents a show called “Don’t Let Me Get Me”, in which she interviews up and coming bands, and plays music of her choosing. This week, I guested on her show as well as a band called the Bibelots, and I will be guesting on her show plenty of times in the future. As such, the download from her show is here, too.
On Tuesdays at 10am, I am part of the new Wired Radio Breakfast Show, and as such, downloads for that will be posted on these summarycap pages from now on, but this week, I messed up, and as such, the download will be on this recap page on Thursday.
Also, none of these shows will feature the original music that was played, due to podcasting/copyright reasons, but the song introductions (Ie, “This song is…”) are kept in for reasons of you knowing what the songs are so you can listen to them of your own accord, and also because editing those out makes the shows sound very awkward and badly flowing.
Each song listed in the playlists below are linked to a youtube video with the song in, if you don’t have the songs yourself.
To Download, find the show, and where it says “Download Here” next to the show name, click the link, then right click + Save as, and enjoy :D
All shows are 128kbs.
