RC 248: 8-Bit Music Machine

In the 1980′ and 90’s I like most of my friends spent many hours programming, creating rudimentary digital pictures (I had a mouse for my Spectrum!), playing games and trying to get something vaguely musical from said microcomputers. So in honour of my 8-bit and 16-bit music days, here is a 8-bit/16-bit music special of modern chiptunes to video game covers, mashups and even original tunes from me – bleep and bloop-tastic music new and old.

There seems to be a ghost in the machine called MC R0B07Cl45H shouting out during the show & making bad 8-bit jokes, even causing the podcast to crash in mid PEEK. How authentic!**

P.S. It’s SFW apart from ‘AFS’ aka “Annoying Fucking Song” so yeah, that one isn’t really one you want to crank up at work/school 😉

HIGHSCORE HALL OF FAME goes to:

LOAD “RADCLASH” BLOOOOOP BLEEEEP! POKE 59458,62* BANG! (116Mb, 1:55)

* This is the infamous ‘Killer Poke‘ – do not try this at home, well if you have the misfortune to still run a Commodore PET, which in French also meant ‘Fart’. LOL.

** He was supposed to be from the Texas Instruments TI-99/4A, but like the frankly shite original computer, I could never get it to actually say anything. Nice of the emulator programmers to make it so life-like and mirror reality so closely! :-/
