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 54: Episode 054

On the final day of the 8-Bit Symphony Pro kickstarter, at 83% funded with little under 5 hours left on the clock, I posted a message on twitter saying:

“If the 8-Bit Symphony Pro kickstarter funds, I solemnly vow to create at least two episodes of the #C64 Take-away before 2019 comes to an end. Think of it as crowdfunding the podcasts with all the proceeds going to professional symphonic recordings.”

And it did fund, so here we are. Episode 54. Whether or not you are one of the people who helped fund this because of my tweet – Thank you for being a part of this awesome community!
