Radio Free Gamer podcast

Hey all,
I mentioned a while back that I was starting up a new podcast, Radio Free Gamer, on 8bitx.com. I'll feature VGM (original soundtracks, remixes, arrangements, or music related to video games) that can be downloaded for free on the internets. My goal is for this show to become a source for people to learn more about the many and varied VGM artists on the net.

To that end I need some online sources for free VGM as described above. Anything goes, as long as it's related to video games and is free to download. Please either respond to this thread with links, PM me, or email me at radiofreegamer@gmail.com. Please send anything fitting the description, I need as many sources as I can possibly get. If you yourself are a VGM artist and would like to be on the show, let me know. I'd also like to do some Skype interviews, as those are always fun.

I aim to start the show in June. Until then, you can check out the other shows on 8bitx.com. My show will be available as a podcast, and will also be aired regularly on 8bitx.com. I'll post again when the show is available. Thanks!

This week Radio Free Gamer will interview MAGFest PR Director Nick Marinelli! We'll also give away 2 free passes to MAGFest! If you want the skinny on how to win, check out the forum post at 8BitX. As always, we're live from 7-9PM Eastern on Wednesday. If you guys have any questions about the contest, or if there's anything you want me to discuss with Nick during our interview, please leave them here or email them to me at radiofreegamer@gmail.com. Thanks!

Kind of a shotgun approach, as the search isn't 100% free releases here, but try this for at least a decent cut of legally free digital release VGM albums: http://vgmdb.net/search?do=results&id=28003

Radio Free Gamer Thread

Hey all,
My new podcast for free VGM airs next Wednesday, June 3rd at 7PM on 8bitx.com! The goal of this podcast is to introduce people to the many VGM artists on the internets, particularly those who offer their music free to download. I will have music, listener interaction via chat and Skype, and interviews with VGM pplz such as:
-The UMD Gamer Symphony Orchestra
-Larry Oji (Liontamer)
-Mattias Häggström (Another Soundscape)
-Andrew Luers (OA)
-Shinobininja
And many more!

Tune in live Wednesday June 3rd at 7PM, or download later as a podcast from 8bitx.com! I will have the exact address for the podcast in a bit, so stay tuned! Also, if anyone would like to point me towards some free VGM, would like to be interviewed, or has an idea for the show (perhaps a nifty segment or way to improve interaction between the audience and me) drop me a line at radiofreegamer@gmail.com! Also, if you're on twitter, follow justinj212 for updates!

Thanks,
-Justin Johnston

Radio Free Gamer - Live 7PM TOMORROW

Hey all,
My new podcast themed around free VGM will air live tomorrow night at 7PM, only on 8bitx.com! It will then be available to download as a podcast from 8bitx.com. Each week I will feature spotlights on VGM artists, with music and exclusive interviews! This week I will showcase the UMD Gamer Symphony Orchestra with recordings from their recent concert and an interview with some of the head honchos there.

Anyway, I hope this will be the next big thing: an outlet for new VGM artists to promote themselves and for people to learn about and download some of the amazing VGM that's scattered around the internets. So please help spread the word, and tomorrow at 7PM point your browsers at 8bitx.com!
-Justin Johnston

That's 7PM EST, as I was asked to clarify. I suppose being on the East Coast almost my entire life has left me with some sort of time zone bias

That's all it takes for you to enjoy yourself ;)

for those actually interested in music we'll be previewing a track from a game I'm working on, Kaleidoscope. Quite awesome if I may say so myself.
