Radio ThaSauce Live — On Hiatus for Now

It’s with regret that I must announce that Radio ThaSauce Live is on hiatus for the next two to three weeks.  I’m going through a huge phase in my life right now, I’m moving out of the house I’ve called home for the last 8 years of my life.  Thus, I’m in the midst of packing up my belongings, throwing out what I don’t need, and trying to get organized for this move.  Therefore, I will not have much, if any time, to actually sit down and do the show.  However, I do have some VERY exciting news for you!

When I return in mid to late June, my shows will be longer, though
continuing on saturdays, they will be at least 4 hours long.  I will
also be looking for a few good co-hosts at that time.  The next planned
time off will be Otakon 2009 since I will be in attendance, and of
course, at the OverClocked Remix Panel and of course JamSpace/Club
What can you expect in June? Longer shows for one.  A
live video feed!  Also, I’m planning on purchasing some DJing gear in
the near future, so keep it locked to Radio ThaSauce Live, as I may
very well be doing a live mix show at some point!

Thanks to everyone who’s been listening in faithfully since the beginning.  What’s coming up promises to be fantastic!

Radio Free Gamer – New Podcast for Free VGM

Radio Free Gamer, the new podcast featuring free VGM, will start on in June.  Until then, please email [email protected] with free original VGM, covers, arrangements, remixes, or music related to video games.  Stay tuned for more details!

8-Bit Extravaganza
will host a new podcast dedicated to free video game music, be it
original soundtracks, arrangements, remixes, or simply music related to
video games.  The goal of this show is to be a source for listeners to
learn about the many and varied VGM artists.
To that end, sources of free VGM are needed!  Please send links with
free VGM as described above to [email protected].  As many
sources as possible are needed, so please send what you have.  If you
are a VGM artist yourself and would like to be featured or interviewed
on the show, please email us.

The show will begin in early June and be updated regularly.  More
details will be posted on as they are available.  Please look
out for it!

8bit FM web radio

From GM4A:

Recently I was informed about a very cool and much needed endeavor. It
is an awesome new streaming web radio site dedicated to every type of
video game inspired music. The aptly titled 8bitfm
is that site, and you can head over there and listen right now to find
plenty of nerdcore, VG rock, chiptunes, remixes, and even lots of
straight VGM compositions. So they definitely have it all, no matter
what type of VG inspired tunes you enjoy! They also have a few daily radio shows for different genres.
The site just started up but it looks like they are doing everything
right to become a great musical source in the community, so definitely
listen in and keep an eye on these folks!

Admittedly, ever since I’ve noticed that internet radio is pretty much all starla listens to, I’ve really been warming up to the idea again. Back in the day I used to listen to pretty much exclusively video game music radio and OverClock’s old streamin radio before ormgas came over and took that over.

That said…I’ve been listening to this all morning now =P

Radio ThaSauce Live — No Show Saturday!

Because of vacation, I will not be able to host the radio show saturday.  My apologies to everyone who’s been listening faithfully.  I have taken to the road to travel to the distant state of…wait for it… Delaware.  I’m away visiting friends, and unfortunately, did not feel appropriate dragging my desktop with me, along with my recording gear.  And though my laptop is pretty new, it’s not been very able with recording voice, or anything of the like. 
Therefore, there will be no show this week.  HOWEVER!!!

in Saturday, May 2nd for the next exciting installment of Radio
ThaSauce Live!!  Next weekend will be a two hours show as usual,
followed by an after show which will have no end point.  It only ends
when people start to log off for the night.  I’ll have plenty of news,
music and events for you, and I’ll even talk about my trip!

See you in a little over a week!

Radio ThaSauce Live — 1st Saturday Episode TONIGHT

Tonight is the first Saturday Episode of Radio ThaSauce Live.  Tonight I will be discussing all manner of topics, and even delving into the OCR forum for fun and enjoyment.

As always, a healthy dosage of new remixes from OCR, RKO and the like will be on hand for your listening pleasure.

The show starts at 8pm EST (EDT for those who insist), 5pm PST.

Go here to listen in tonight:

Radio ThaSauce Live — Pre-emptive Move to Saturday Nights

During the last show, I announced that I was going to be moving the show from Fridays to Saturdays, at the same time slot, because of a pending adjustment in my work schedule.  Well, this coming friday was supposed to be the last show before that happened, HOWEVER, because of an invite to a baseball game, specifically the first Phillies game since the passing of beloved personality, and legendary announcer, Harry Kalas, I will not be hosting the show Friday night, rather, I will be moving it pre-emptively to Saturdays starting this week.  This should work out in your favor if you’ve been wanting to listen in to the show.
Expect the same fun, weird requests, humor and news that you’ve come to
see from me so far.  I’m still hopeful that I will be able to take live
callers and live call in requests in the near future.

Here’s the upcoming schedule of events for Radio ThaSauce Live:

Friday, April 17, 2009: Show moved to Saturday, April 18, 2009
Sat. April 17, 2009: Radio ThaSauce Live @ 8pm EST/EDT 5pm PST/PDT
Sat. April 25, 2009: No show, Dyne will be on vacation
Sat. May 2, 2009: The first show of May, live @ 8pm EST/EDT 5pm PST/PDT

That’s all for now!  Keep checking ThaSauce for more updates and information about Radio ThaSauce Live!

Nitro Game Injection: VGM Podcast (Show 113 now available)

KyleJCrb posted on OCReMix:

Some of you might remember my live webcast Nitro Game Injection, which
has been going off and on (mostly off) for over the past five years.
The show has been revived and revamped a few times now, but this newest
incarnation will be the best yet, guaranteed!
For those who don’t know:

Nitro Game Injection (NGI) is a video game music podcast that focuses
on original soundtracks, remixes, cover tunes, and doujin bands.
It was started in early 2003 as a live webcast and has gone on for over
100 shows. As of episode 113, the format has shifted to a bi-weekly
podcast format.

The show is hosted by Kyle “KyleJCrb” Crouse and, as of episode #113,
the long-awaited return of VG Frequency host and OCR judge Larry
“Liontamer” Oji.

The show features video game discussion, news on recent releases and happenings within the community, interviews with artists,
requests, and more!

a lot of great music involved as well as banter with myself and Larry. check it out!
