The C64 Take-away podcast

Spreading the Commodore Love from Copenhagen, Denmark since June 2005 this podcast features an eclectic mix of Commodore 64 chiptunes and remixes of tunes from the best-selling home computer of all time. Carefully chosen and presented for your listening pleasure by me, Jan Lund Thomsen.


Episode 053

First episode in what feels like forever (according to Wolfram|Alpha it’s been 4 years, 5 months and 3 days).  In return for your patience this episode clocks in at a little over an hour, so expect the usual C64-related music goodness, hand-picked for your listening pleasure. Apologies in advance for any mispronunciations I made on the show. And if I don’t sound as cheerful as usual, it’s because I was really focused on the recording process.

Thanks to everyone who kept the faith and stayed tuned over the years.

As mentioned on this episode, the podcast is back on iTunes after being removed for undisclosed reasons. So in order to help new people discover these great tunes, I’d really appreciate it if you rate and review the show on iTunes.
