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 045

Holy rapid release schedule, Batman! Another C64 Take-away already? Makke and Jan are back to entertain you with even more carefully selected C64 SIDs and remixes – including an 8-bit tribute to the man who came up with the moonwalk, and a trip back to the early days of remixing. Also, we talk about the BBC tuning into the chiptune/remix scene, and Apple not wanting people to run emulated 6510 assembly code on the iPhone.
