This week I'm bringing back an interview first aired on RadioSEGA's The Manic Monday Show on the 26th of February 2018. The person I interviewed is Steve, aka OSC. He is a long time collaborator of mine doing music for RadioSEGA shows as well as being the director of one of the station's remix albums. He was also kind enough to do the amazing remix that serves as the theme song for the current season of The SEGA Lounge and to allow me to use some bits of his works throughout different parts of the episodes.
This week, we have a legendary vgm composer, the marvelous Matt Furniss, known for many iconic game soundtracks, including The Terminator, Alien 3, The Lost Vikings and many more on SEGA systems. Enjoy the interview and come back next week for another bite-sized chat.
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.

On the week of SEGA's 60th anniversary (#GOSEGA, #SEGA60th), it's an honor to welcome legendary composer Howard Drossin to The SEGA Lounge.
