Another SUPER fun episode; I was smiling from the start hearing Kyle's voice. Kirkhope's interview was great fun, and also quite enlightening to hear from a guy with such a long resume. The point about vgm introducing many people to various different styles of music was a good one, I don't think I had really thought about that (apart from game music orchestral concerts). I'm very fond of VGM's own original voice, so to speak, via chiptunes, but that's a good point.

Lastly, the playlist is working it's magic again, I know Kirkhope mainly as the Banjo-Kazooie or DK Rap guy (funny music), but I'm getting a lot out of the orchestral pieces on the playlist. "Dalentarth" especially reminds me of some of the Finnish compositions in the classical field that I enjoy. I do feel the need to investigate further.

What's with your co-host this week? He sounds like someone grating cheese with a guitar.

Yeah, he was kind of a doofus, but luckily doesn't read these forums so no harm done.

EDIT: But at least he's not Bryan

Thanks Eino! Before the interview started, I asked Grant if he wanted to focus on a single game or series, maybe Viva Pinata or Yooka-Laylee. In his agreeable fashion, he said to ask him anything, he'll talk about anything, and just see what happens. First interview on the OCPC I've done without notes. It was fun. :)

And yeah, Mr. Kirkhope gets pigeonholed with the goofball tunes, and that's all true-- but don't stop there. His biggest influence is John Williams and you can tell.

I loved this episode! Grant was super honest, and sounds like an overall cool dude. Before I got much into music (or VGM), I was a metalhead just like him, and now, I definitely have the eclectic tastes he speaks of. :D
