This week, I'm joined on the Lounge by the amazing Tom Campbell. Radio presenter, part of the Cultaholic Wrestling website and YouTube channel and, most importantly I'd say, Sonic the Hedgehog fan. As you probably know, everyone's favorite blue hedgehog is turning 30 next year and Tom decided a good way to celebrate that was to put together an audio documentary about the games, the cartoons, the comic books and the fans that make the blue blur such a beloved character. This has been one of the best times I ever had recording an interview and that's saying a lot so I do hope you enjoy getting to know the legend that is Tom Campbell.
This week's episode is focused on another big Sonic community event: the Sonic Hacking Contest 2020, taking place between Monday, October 26th and Sunday, November 1st. Spanner of the SHC team joins me on the show this week to discuss the history of the event and what we can expect from both the Contest and Expo sides of it this year. If you're into playing Sonic hacks and mods, keep listening.
The SEGA Lounge has officially reopened for business. This week, and it's a Lounge tradition already, we're covering SAGE, the Sonic Amateur Games Expo 2020. It's a special one, not only for the sheer amount of fan games and indie games that will be showcased, but also because it's the event's 20th anniversary. So you can definitely expect it to be bigger and better than ever. SAGE 2020 takes place from September 5th to September 12th, and it's a pleasure to have Carson, aka Neo Hazard, on the show to discuss it. Stick around for some interesting points regarding what makes this year's event so unique, what Carson thinks of the evolution of SAGE throughout the years and a crazy challenge, as always.
This week, we're going back in time to May 2018 and re-airing an interview with Michael Corker, former editor of Sonic the Comic Online. The comic was celebrating 25 years of existence at the time and Michael went on RadioSEGA's The Manic Monday Show to talk about the original physical comic, the online version that came after it, and more.
This week, I finally get to talk with a living legend of the Sonic and SEGA community. For some reason, it took me a long time to ask him to come on the show. Silly KC... Lewis Clark, aka Sonic Yoda, is the webmaster of SEGADriven.com and SonicYoda.org before it, our guest is an old school SEGA fan, a musician, a former RadioSEGA show host and more. His website and YouTube channel are personal favorites of mine.
This week, we're focusing on the Race For Good 2020, a community event ran by friend of the show Andrew 'TheBritishAndy' Wilson and Pete 'TitansCreed' Nethercote. This is the third edition of the streaming event that aims to raise money in support of Special Effect. The event is taking place this weekend, ie, June 19th to June 21st.
Welcome back to our conversation with legendary SEGA composer Howard Drossin. In this second part of the interview, we talk Virtual Sonic and its "Metal Sonic" song, discuss Howard's current projects, and he shares some advice for wannabe vgm composers. Oh, and there's The SEGA Lounge Challenge in there somewhere!
On the week of SEGA's 60th anniversary (#GOSEGA, #SEGA60th), it's an honor to welcome legendary composer Howard Drossin to The SEGA Lounge. We've had such a great conversation that it had to be split into two parts. Listen to this week's episode for the first as Howard shares his beginnings as a musician and some interesting facts behind his time at the SEGA Technical Institute in the 1990's.
The wonderfully talented Johnny Gioeli is back! Four years later, KC catches up with Johnny and learns more about his past and present works and, perhaps more importantly, makes him sing children's songs...
