  1. Hmm... weird. I'll talk to our engineers. I recorded the whole show on my computer, via the webstream, using Firefox. I'll hopefully have a podcast-esque thingy up soon. Thanks for any who were able to listen, and sorry to anyone else if things were uber-frustrating! This is why I hate computers sometimes...
  2. The message that "The stream is currently experiencing technical difficulties" has actually been on the page for a while, only not updated. The music should work, however (the stream's working for me right now, anyway). We're broadcasting from an auxiliary studio because our primary studio is currently experiencing technical difficulties, so you won't see anyone on the web cam. But don't worry - we WILL be there (I promise!). Guess this is what I get for going to a small school ^^
  3. Hey everyone, thanks for all your interest/support. It's been a LOT of help having people give song suggestions and other information. If any of you happen to be trolling or just passing through any relevant message boards before tonight's show (you know, RPG boards, other vgmusic boards, etc.), don't forget that it's always nice to drop a little link in once in a while... you know, for people to listen in case they're bored I've put a LOT of time into pre-production, so I just hope I don't disappoint tonight! Remember - 11 p.m. CST - 4 a.m. (possibly). I may go short depending on how tired I am and how much material I'm repeating (though I have about 3 hours of just solid music fully prepared in the studio, plus another couple hours available from other sources), but I'll try to go the distance.
  4. I finally finished recording the show promo with Dan, my co-host. This should give you a flavor for what you might expect: http://www.angelfire.com/il2/posse/insertcoin.mp3 I wanted to mention and feature some more mainstream/popular music on the promo (i.e. Mario, Halo 2, and Final Fantasy) to draw in a more broad audience, but don't worry, I'll delve as deeply as I can into less "mainstream" gaming series. I'll see about recording it for a podcast later on. I went to Dwelling of Duels for about 4 hours and grabbed some stuff off of there (I'd never visited before, so it was great), and I'll try to dig into VGMix tonight. I checked out Overlooked Remix as well, but... well... yeah. I don't know about some of that stuff ^^
  5. Between actual music and the estimated amount of banter my co-hosts and I will create between songs, I've got at least 2 and a half solid hours for the show ready (and I haven't been through Audity's list yet). If anyone else has specific tracks they'd like to hear, or think would go well on the show, now would be a good time to speak up. This includes not only OC mixes, but other mixes as well, in addition to OST tracks, since I have access to tons of those. It's not so much that I don't have any ideas about what to play on the show; it's that I have so much material that I don't know where to start deciding what to actually play out of my library. I figured it'd be easy to come here and solicit ideas... that way, I'm not only building a playlist based on what others want (and, consequently, what they want to hear), but I can save myself an hour here and there that I would otherwise spend obsessing over which of my 400 Castlevania tracks to play. So specific mixes are good (and links are even better!).
  6. All this feedback is amazing. I'm definitely going to use a lot of the songs you've all suggested. And I feel like an IDIOT about the System of a Down mistake (I just looked around online and realized how wrong everyone is). The stream is at http://www.941thedog.com. Just click "Click here to listen to The Dog now!" (it's on the main site). The stream is up and down sometimes during the week, but I'll make SURE it's on at 11:00 Thursday.
  7. That's great advice. I'd definitely love the widest variety of sources possible - multiple bands ("Legend of Zelda" by System of a Down might get in there), music from movies and TV shows (can we say "Super Mario Brothers Super Show" theme?), OST's, and, of course, some jazz (Estradasphere is a must). I'll check around for links to other good mix sites in the morning. I promise I'll stop trolling my own board now (bed time!). Thanks again for the feedback!
  8. Oh, definitely. Don't worry - this isn't going to turn into the "Final Fantasy, Zelda, and Mario" hour. I'm hoping to pull from Ikaruga, Kid Icarus, Lufia, Punch-Out!, TMNT, and Xenogears, just to name a few marginally less super-popular games. I'll probably get some Neskimos action in there, too. Any obscure title suggestions are welcome - thanks for the feedback!
  9. I'm "a long-time listener, first-time caller," as they say in radio. I must admit I feel mildly awkward posting a new thread as my very first post on the OC forums after so many years of listening to the awesome mixes on this site, but hopefully nobody will mind, considering the information I have. I'm the program director of 94.1 The Dog, a radio station based out of Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Our signal broadcasts pretty much all over the city, so there are about half a million potential listeners in Iowa in addition to our internet audience that listens to the live stream on our web site. The reason I'm telling you this is because starting this Thursday, I'm going to be the host of "Insert Coin," a show consisting completely of video game music, remixes, and arrangement. My co-host and I are going to start running promos on our station this week and hope to have a pretty sizeable audience in Des Moines (though I imagine our primary audience will be online listeners). So why am I telling you this? Well, the best remixes on the internet come from this web site. My radio station is an educational station, so we aren't subject to a ridiculous amount of royalty fees or copyright laws and can pretty much play whatever music we want on the station, but I want to extend an invitation to any OC remixers (or other mixers on this site) who would be particularly interested in hearing their works played on our first episode this Thursday. There will only be 3 episodes of "Insert Coin" since I'm graduating in just a few weeks. I've always had a show at 11:00 (CST) Thursday nights, but the show didn't have a consistent format until I decided just last week to make it a video game music show, which is why the show is arriving so late in the year. Each broadcast will hopefully go from 11pm Thursday to 4am Friday. As far as I know, this will be the only regularly broadcast video game music radio show in the nation. I'll of course attribute all mixes to their proper remixers and original composers, and, of course, shamelessly plug this site pretty much non-stop during my show, since I get 99% (literally) of my remixes from here. But if anyone has a violent objection to my playing their music, speak up now so I know what you're thinking! My current playlist for the first episode includes: -A selection from the Halo 2 Original Soundtrack (not "Remembrance") -A track or two from the "Mario and Zelda Big Band Live" CD, recorded in Tokyo, Japan -A selection from either "Dear Friends" or "More Friends" (Final Fantasy) -The Mortal Kombat movie theme -The Black Mages (more Final Fantasy music) That should cover just about... 18-20 minutes of music (if even), so I definitely need lots more material! Suggestions/questions/comments? Thanks in advance! ...Unless you completely shoot me down, in which case I'll gracefully leave everyone alone ^^
