SEGA Mixer Drive's 5th season starts tonight! After a nice December holiday, it's time for our host's work mode to kick back in again...
SMD is ready to kick into gear for its first show in August... but as the host is an attendee to this year's Summer of Sonic, it's however set to broadcast 3 hours earlier. There's still the usual fun to be had, so read on after the jump...
Tomorrow on SMD, RadioSEGA's celebrations for Sonic the Hedgehog's 25th Anniversary continue with a 2 hour show exclusively about the Blue Blur! How is this going to pan out? Read after the jump...
May can only mean the cheesiest competition on TV getting broadcast, and to mark the events surrounding the Eurovision Song Contest this week, tonight's SEGA Mixer Drive will focus entirely on those European (and Australian) arrangers that repped the blue brand. Read on after the jump...
We're in the run-up to the Saturn's anniversary! This week, we are in for a huge ride, breaking convention to give you 2 hours of remixes covering loads of games on the 32-bit machine's roster!
It's the end of the month and it can only mean one thing - the SMD Mystery Mix seals up the month with 2 hours of Sega remixes, all based on a specifc concept. But it's not at the usual time this time around. Read on after the jump...
It's the time of season again where the Blue Blur gets benched for one week and all other Sega franchises get more of a chance to have the spotlight shone on them!
It's time to come clean with my contribution to yesterday's big DONNIEFest...
With a new Station Manager also comes a change of direction for your Friday night remix show. RadioDONNIE LiVE debuts tonight with a very familiar radio host and an equally familiar premise, but what did SSF1991 change, exactly? Read on after the jump...
The last Friday of the month can only mean another Mystery Mix, in which all tracks to be aired tonight have something in common and won't be revealed until the show starts airing!
I said right at the end of Friday's show that there'll be one more normal show before RadioSEGA's 10th Anniversary; however, circumstances have changed! GameLark Records is due to release its new Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary tribute 'SUPERSONIC' next Saturday (March 12th). And on Friday's SMD, you'll be able to hear it before the album goes live!
It's the end of February, and that can only mean the SMD Mystery Mix! The setlist for tomorrow night will be based around one particular musical idea, but what will it be?
After settling down for the first few weeks, the first SMD special (outside of Mystery Mixes, that is) will air tonight! Valentine's Day would be a tough day for some, but do remember that there's more loves in life than your special someone - including your friends!
We've eased into the groove for Season 4, and now it's time to head to the first special! It just so happens to be the last Friday of the month, which can only mean a Mystery Mix!
We're almost back in the swing of things for SMD Season 4! Next week's show will end January off spectacularly with a Mystery Mix, but before we get there, there's one more regular show up for the count!
We're steadily getting back into the SMD groove, and after a fantastic Series 4 launch last week, the rhythm will keep going! As it's a regular edition, you're free to ask for whatever Sega remixes you want - and matched with tomorrow's segments, it's bound to get insane!
Doesn't it feel odd to be back to the usual routine after a nice, long Christmas break? Yeah, I kind of feel odd too. But it'll be worth it once Sega Mixer Drive returns to the airwaves tonight for the start of Season 4! What's new? Read on after the jump...
Another year has gone, and on tomorrow's SEGA Mixer Drive, we look back at what a year it had been! Defining tracks, definining moments, the plethora of running gags... you'll be hearing plenty of them on tomorrow night's show and THEN some. Read after the jump...
We're coming into the second-to-last episode of the entire SMD Season. This week, we go uber-special once more as we focus our attention to the legacy of the Sega Mega Drive, which is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of its European launch this Monday!
Only 3 episodes remain until Season 3 of SMD comes to a close. Tomorrow's show is one of them. After a huge reqiest turnout last week, can thos get topped with the last regular edition of 2015?
Well, it had to happen at least once this season. Your humble host has caught a cold and will need more time to speak coherent sentences than the usual. In spite of this, there will be a show tomorrow - and after 3 weeks of specials, it's every arrange for itself!
It started as a simple suggestion during this year's Fish Friday. And now, there'll be a cozy, warm and most-likely-too-hot-to-handle set of Sega arranges tomorrow with a fire-related Red Hot Friday!
This weekend, Halloween night will approach once again. A night full of ghouls, monsters and little kids knocking on doors asking for candy... with a night full of fear and fright ahead, SMD will kick-start the atmosphere during the evening before!
The mystery mixes have been going swimmingly well this year! But the one happening tomorrow night is such a mix... with a twist! Not only will the show start half an hour early, but within the 2-hour playlist of music behind a certain theme, our friends at the Sonic Stadium have also chipped in with a brand new EP! Read more after the jump...
Yes, this is the third regular week in a row, but it's also the last one before a string of specials. In the run-up to a new album release, a unique theme week and Halloween, let's see what kind of variety tomorrow will bring!
Tomorrow's edition of SMD still keeps things nice and standard with a regular edition of the show, where everything can go including the crazy antics of you and I. As this is also the night before Manchester's annual Play Expo event, expect your host to be more excite than the usual!
Feeling moody with the cold weather and fallen leaves? No problem - get a cup of fruity tea and join in for tomorrow's regular edition of SMD - which can be further juiced up by YOU!
The end of September is upon us, and that can only mean one thing - the Mystery Mix is set to end off the entire month! What musical trait will all arranges share tomorrow night?
2 days ahead of its 16th Anniversary, the Dreamcast is getting some love on tomorrow night's show! Read on for how you can contribute to that night's set!
Well, Summer's over, but let's not reminisce just yet. The first show of September is here, and after a fun vocal set last week, it's onwards to a regular edition. If you're celebrating Labor Day this monday, consider it a 4-day extended dance break - and you can even add to it!
How long has it been since we've had a Mystery Mix at the end of the month? 2 months? Not like it matters, because for 2 hours tomorrow night, the selection of remixes all share a musical theme. What can it be?
We had a splash of a time with Fish Friday last week, and there's a Mystery Mix in the pipeline next week. How about we tone it down a peg and catch up with a nice regular week? Grab a cup of tea and settle down with a bunch of Sega remixes and the smooth, sultry, over-dramatic sound of my voice, why don't ya?
The obligatory aquatic theme has returned for Series 3! Summer is (should be?) in full swing and why not mark the weather with some very watery arranges? Read on after the jump...
Had enough of some of my self-picks from last week's (birthday-cake-filled!!) edition? You've got a chance to be a part of this week's regular edition! Read more after the jump...
This week's SMD is going to take a different turn from the usual this week. Heck, it's even a more different turn than any other end-of-month show. It's happening live this Friday night with 2 hours of kickass Sega arrange tunes, remixes and other cool things... but it'll also be my birthday on the night! Read on for what to expect this time around...
Remind me next time to not do a blog title in the style of a Japanese TV show episode. Anyway...
This week's SMD is the third and last regular show for July, so if you know what to expect by now, you know what to do. Otherwise, read on!
Are you all geared up for tomorrow's SMD? There's not much to say about it other than it being a reguar edition, so that means any Sega game / bgm is fair game for coverage. Unlike last week, I'm not going to forget the blog this time around. I promise it won't happen again!
Did you see the news post at the top of the page? This week, a handful of RS DJs are taking to the tarmac circuts with the RadioSEGA Grand Prix, a summer event held at the same weekend as the F1 British Grand Prix and a great time to endulge in Sega's racing classics. Tomorrow's SMD will take you for a test drive with a 2 hour Sega racing BGM remix set!
Time to do things a little differently for the end of the month! The Mystery Mixes have your host setting the entire setlist for the evening, but with a musical twist. Read on after the jump...
We're not too far off from June 23rd, the date 24 years to the day that the original Sonic the Hedgehog made its way onto the Mega Drive and started a legacy that continues to this day. For this week's SMD, it'll be two hours of Sonic arrange tunes, created by fans!
Are you all geared up for SEGA Mixer Drive tomorrow night? Set up for this week's regular edition? You should be - after this week, it's going to be 3 weeks of specials running straight, so if there's something you'd love to hear on the show, you got to get in before it's too late!
Two eventful weeks went by! And now, we go back to a regular edition of SMD for the first show of June. A lot of catching up is in order: new releases unable to fit in the previous two weeks, more of a look-back at what arranged tunes hit the charts, going through everyone's requests... yep. It's gonna be one of those nights!
Break out the parsols and deckchairs - Summer is coming, and the kind folks at the Sonic Stadium are set to raise the roof tomorrow night with the launch of SotSS '15: Tropical Paradise! Be here tomorrow night to listen to the album here FIRST!
To mark the 60th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest and the Grand Final happening on Saturday night, this week's SMD is getting in the mood via a special show focused on arrangers from across the continent... and THEN some. Read on after the jump...
Between 2 weeks ago and now, new material had really gone up tenfold. This week would be your last chance this month to see your very own host surf around the web hunting for these tracks without a theme in consideration... or even a certain album lurking on the horizon...
Owing to a concert happening in Manchester this Friday that yours truly will attend, this week's edition of SMD will be broadcast this Saturday - and coincidentally, it's the perfect day of the week to not only mark the Sega Saturn's 20th anniversary, but also pun the two quirks together... don't you think?
Can't you believe it's May already? With 5 shows coming through this month including 2 incredible specials, it'll be packed full of surprises on both your end and mine! First up, we have a regular show tomorrow; it's every bit your show as well as my own!
It's almost the end of April. That can only mean one thing - the Mystery Mix is back to strike once again! It's 2 hours of remixes of my own choosing, all based around a certain musical theme. The theme itself won't be revealed until the show starts - that's the mystery behind it!
Sonic's itching and raring to go again, after the so-called neglect behind last week's show. It's a Free-For-All, so anything goes in the setlist, as long as it's a Sega remix / arrange tune - and you can still contribute to tomorrow night's show!
Season 1 had a unique gaming-related theme that also had a chance to counter against the most often-heard Sega series remixed by FAR. Sonic the Hedgehog domination is even now something you'd come to expect on this show every week, but not this time - Sonic Free Week means the blue blur takes a backseat for one week only and allow for other Sega franchises to shine!
Would you believe it? It's Easter weekend already! But if you were expecting the Easter Bunny to meander onto the airwaves with something truly special, you're unfortunately completely wrong. This will be the first SMD regular episode in a month - who's up for a little back-to-basics?
The second Mystery Mix of the current SMD season will commence tomorrow. That'll be 2 hours of Sega arranges with a common genre between them, and not to be revealed until the show itself. BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! Just read after the jump!
2 hugely-special shows in the space of 2 weeks? It's still happening! March has marked milestones for not only RadioSEGA as a site (hitting 9 years old this week), but also RSLiVE reached 5 years of INCREDIBLE live shows! And tomorrow night, there's 2 hours of playing key remix highlights from the ENTIRE Live Show set's run.
The charitable person that is me is set to add a bit of a humorous spirit to Sega remix coverage tomorrow night, as I go all out and trace the footsteps of everyone's favorite red Echidna for Red Nose Day! Read on after the jump...
Back by popular-ish demand, the genre-based weeks from Season 1 will make their first Season 3 re-appearance this week. Those weeks back in 2013 had theme announcements prior to the actual show, but this time... you'll only know if you tune in!
Guess who completely overlooked the Chinese New Year weekend? This gal. But whether you celebrate the holiday or not, we're definitely not acting sheepish on tomorrow's SMD - back to a regular show. It's your last chance to send requests in to be heard in the show this month, so it's time to act fast!
Tomorrow's SEGA Mixer Drive is shaping up to be the smoothest yet - as a Valentine's Day weekend episode, it's all focused on Sega arrange tunes that you and your loved one(s) can all appreciate together, sitting in front of an open fire, holding hands, bringing that other hand further into... AHEM. More details after the jump.
The first show of February is going to be a nice regular free-for-all show to compliment all the insanity that we've had to start off the entire season. But the chaos never stops - with excitement building up to this weekend's London Anime Con, yours truly will be more up in the clouds than ever!
It's almost time for the coveted 100th episode of the show! Would you believe it's been running for so long?? Not only that, but there's another exciting social development down the line as well...
As implied by the blog title, it's a quiet night in with a regular show / free-for-all / whatever people are probably going to call it now. But at Episode 99, it can only mean one thing - the 100th edition is almost within our reach!
This Friday's SEGA Mixer Drive may be one of the more different episodes yet - it'll be an episode entirely focused on the work of GameChops, a net record label focused on videogame remixes. Full details on what to expect are after the jump...
It's the January blues, the holidays are over, and the people are heading out to put their Christmas weight behind them... myself included. RadioSEGA is bound to get lively this January, and the launch of SEGA Mixer Drive Season 3 is amongst them!
Another year, another 48 weeks of madness, and bizarrely different sets of madness than last year! You're all invited to come in for the SMD Season Finale, this Friday, as we look back at 2014 before moving onto the next year. Time has flied, hasn't it?
For the penultimate episode of Season 1, we had a listening party for Temporal Duality. Now, history is set to repeat itself (sort of!) with a listening party for the second-to-last episode of Season 2 - and it marks the launch of a new album series known as the Sound of the Sonic Stadium!
In spite of oral surgery earlier this week, I am gearing up for tomorrow's edition of SEGA Mixer Drive! This will be the last Free-For-All for the entire season, so if there's anything you absolutely want to hear before the season closes out, now's the time to go nuts!
Blast Processing! Sega does what Nintendon't! To be this good takes AGES! This week, we're going back to the early 90s with an episode fully dedicated to games released on the Mega Drive. Whether it's nostalgic or historic, you're in for a treat!
How are you gentlemen. Your weekend is on the way to destruction. Your ear drums have no chance to survive make your time. In other words, SMD is set to explode onto the airwaves like 2-day-old fireworks this weekend - come join in, listen with like-minded folk, and even plop a request or two!
Unbolt the coffins, dig up those gravestones and recruit your local spirit mediums - it's Halloween night tomorrow night, and SMD is getting in the mood by playing 2 hours of remixes to unite the dead and living!
After an incredible RPG-centric show last week. tomorrow's show goes back to the ground as the game scope opens back up for another Free-For-All. A fair chunk of the setlist has already been locked in including all three Remix Highlights - but there's still plenty of room left to get your voice heard!
Darkness has overtaken the land of RadioSEGA. A fierce monster dwells in the Sacred Stream of 24/7 and is out to devour anyone that comes near it. But fear not - come with me this Friday night for SEGA Mixer Drive, and together we will take down this monster with 2 hours of remixes from Sega's finest RPGs!
Guess who wasn't expecting to go to Manchester's Play Expo 2014 until a couple of days ago? In spite of preparation for a fun weekend, Sega Mixer Drive is still going to start it off big-time with a Free-For-All, where the music picks could go just about anywhere and even yours can send it in a bizarre direction.
It's a new week and a new month. October's bound to get pretty freaky especially towards month's end - first of all, let's head right into our first Free-For-All of the new month. The setlist is already shaping up extremely nicely, but there seems to be a few things missing - and you can help with that!
The end of the month can only be that time again! No, not a Dwelling of Duels Listening Party (but to be fair, that happens too) - we slacken the seriousness for one night and witness two groups of loosely-related remixes come together in a VS Week!
After a huge string of specialised shows, it's time we started heading back to the ground with a free-for-all this week. This means new release catchups and more wide-open choices to be made on music to be played - and even YOU can be a part of it!
September can only mean one thing - Dreamcast Anniversary Month. But it's not just ANY old anniversary - this week, it's been 15 years since the system's release in the United States. And this week's SMD is all about giving the 128-bit machine a whole lot of love!
It's not exactly getting my body freezing-wet, but SMD will undergo a cold-water-based special show tomorrow in support of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It's not just requests you can get involved with this time - read on after the jump...
The end of August means one thing - a VS Week show. Think a regular week sounds too vanilla and unexpected in nature? How about a friendly theme matchup between two groups of remixes, both loosely related by a theme?
You're reading this correctly - last August, there was a 'Best of British' show which highlighted remixes by artists from RadioSEGA's home country. Tomorrow, the scope will expand to the entire continent, as SMD takes to a show entirely dedicated to creative minds across Europe!
After much research, I can say that after this week, there will be 3 consecutive themed weeks coming straight through! For now, this is your last chance to get in choices of your own choosing in an all-out Free-For-All, where anything goes as long as it's a Sega game remix. Simple, right?
Enjoying the Summer heat? Been listening to RadioSEGA in the back yard? Dropped an ice cream on your loudspeakers? You know the heat is certainly on, and Friday's SMD will continue to deliver with 2 hours of remixes - partly my own endeavours and partly chosen by YOU.
Missed your Friday night insanity last week? No problem - SMD is back to its regular Friday timeslot tomorrow, and while the show type is as vanilla as we can get, you can tune in for 2 hours of remixes new and old, quirky or standard, hand-picked or requested by you.
It's the end of the month and that can mean one thing - a good ol' fashioned hoedown through a VS Week. But why is it happening on a Sunday? Read on after the jump...
Almost fully recovered from last week's dental trauma, I am set to take SMD live again this week, but with a very unusual theme week this time around. You're probably asking exactly why OverClocked Remix is going to be excluded this time around, right? If so, read after the jump...
I try. I really try to put on an awesome show every week. But due to a last minute dental problem, it may be looking likely that tomorrow night's SEGA Mixer Drive will be of the pre-recorded variety. You can still enjoy 2 hours of sweet arrangements even though I'd be curled up in bed, right?
It's the 4th of July, it's a national holiday in the United States... but there's nothing planned from the UK-based SMD to really acknowledge it this week. That however doesn't stop you from going all-American in this week's regular show, or even go as far away from the land of hamburgers entirely; it's all up to you!
Right at the end of an eventful June, this week's SMD focuses its attention on not one but TWO new albums - one of which being a WORLD EXCLUSIVE!
It's that time of year again - time to acknowledge another year of a certain blue hedgehog's existence. This Monday it'll be 23 years to the date that Sonic 1 was released for the Mega Drive, and it'll be on this Friday's show that the entire show's focus will be all on the blue blur!
With a Sonic anniversary weekend on the horizon as well as a couple of EP releases, this means that tomorrow's episode of SEGA Mixer Drive will be the only regular one for some time. But if you want that wide Sega outlook before it becomes strictly blue hedgehogs and red Ferraris, now's the chance to come in and add some spice to tomorrow's playlist!
Arguably the quirkiest theme of the previous season, Fish Friday will splash down for another go in this week's show! Come listen in on Friday's show, where all things aquatic will come in and instead of going to the beach, the beach is coming to YOU.
The last Friday of the month means an all-out VS week! We can put away the chivalry and etiquette and just enjoy music through a more confrontational outlook. Read after the jump...
Fed up of going through the weekday trials? You and I both. We can make Friday exciting together with our combined heads on this week's SEGA Mixer Drive! WARNING: This is the last request chance you have for this month, so let's get a move on!
With Summer looming in the horizon, RadioSEGA is getting set for the warm months ahead, and SMD is no exception. After the mega-exciting Saturn week last week, it's back to normal for a couple more weeks - though your definition of 'normal' may vary...
This time last year, there was a Sega Saturn special on SEGA Mixer Drive marking the anniversary of its release in the USA. Now, this show theme will return for the second time - with twice as much music, ears all out to the people, and not a hospital knockout to be seen. What does the Sega Saturn mean to YOU, though?
As the title shows, next week's show... is actually our first completely regular show since near the end of January. No competitions in the way, no special theme, no battle royales... it's all just YOU and the music.
Now that the Sonic Zone hype is officially over, it's back to whatever normality is possible... or is it? The end of April marks time for a VS Week - fetch that popcorn over to the ringside as two more groups of loosely-themed remixes go head-to-head for your support!
After 2 and a half months and 31 gruelling battles, the Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014 has come to a close. This week's show marks the end of a fantastic compo coverage, with one or two plans up its sleeve to define the moment. Read on after the jump...
It's been a wild 2 months, but 32 competitors have been brought down to just 2 remaining. The Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014 has reached the final showdown between the winners of the two brackets - ladyWildfire, weilding Aqua Planet from Sonic Chaos; and TheGuitahHeroe, with his source pick of Death Egg from Sonic & Knuckles. After mixing each others' sources together, who will stand as the SZRC champion?
With ladyWildfire and TheGuitahHeroe in full swing for the SZRC 2014 final, this week's SMD is taking a break from the compo this week. So if you've been wanting a show exactly like the beginning of the season, you've got your chance!
So... it's Week 8 of the Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014. And it's not even Friday and the two grand finalists have been revealed - in 2 weeks, Sonic Bracket winner ladyWildfire will be going against Robotnik Bracket winner (by default...) TheGuitahHeroe to see who will win the entire tournament. What's on offer THIS week though?
The Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014 climax has just begun - this week, it's the Sonic Bracket Final between ladyWildfire (Sonic Chaos - Aqua Planet) and Amphibious (Sonic 3 - Marble Garden). While this is a very blue bracket, this isn't exactly what I had in mind (!) - nevertheless, read on after the jump...
Something will be reading red on this week's SMD. No, it's not the sudden early summer temperatures in the UK - it's the third round of the Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014's Robotnik Bracket. There's going to be some unique musical contraptions and more this week - read after the jump for more...
We're almost halfway through the Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014, and this week's show features the entries for Round 3 of the Sonic Bracket. In a strange twist, only 3 artists remain; which 2 will remain for the final, and who will be featured for the return of the Community Spotlight this week?
SMD may be more unusual than most RS shows, but it's still game to entertain this weekend with its continued coverage of the Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014. Something will happen in the next 18 days and that is the revelation of the Semi-Finalists; but first, this week continues on with Round 2 of the Robotnik Bracket and all 8 submitted tracks - the syrup needed for this weekend's pancake supper!
We are the GLiTCH and we've come to eat your souls... JUST KIDDING. Rexy's here, gearing up for tomorrow night's SMD where its Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014 coverage continues with Round 2 of the Sonic Bracket. There's 7 submissions in, there's a 2-hour slot... what else can possibly happen?
SMD's Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014 coverage continues tomorrow with Round 1 of the Robotnik Bracket. 15 tracks were submitted, but only 8 arrangers can move on to the next round. Which ones will go sunny-side up, and which will just end up with egg on their face?
It's not even 5 episodes in for SMD Season 2 and for the next 2 months there's going to be a major remixing event to be covered - the Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2014! It all starts this week with going through all 14 tracks submitted for Round 1 of the Sonic Bracket - which tracks will Sonic Boom their way to the top?
Next week's SMD takes an interesting turn, as it's a DJ set with a difference - two groups of remixes sharing a common theme will compete against each other in an end-month showdown known as the VS Week. How is it going to work? Read after the jump...
SEGA Mixer Drive's 2nd season has been going great so far, and going into February it's about to get even more intense - this Friday's show will be the last chance for a while you'd get to hear your requests on the show. Why? Read after the jump...
The second show in for 2014 and the next SEGA Mixer Drive Free-For-All hits a major milestone - it's its 50th episode! Party time, much?
Depressed after the pure joy that is the Christmas vacation? Guess what? So am I, in a way. But we can lift the January blues up with a fun-packed Friday like we've had for the past year. SEGA Mixer Drive is BACK in business - and it's double the fun for 2014!
After 48 episodes, a few special occasions and as much coffee as one could possibly consume, SEGA Mixer Drive will go on break. But don't worry, this week's episode will have us looking back at the incredible first year of its run and all memories associated with it!
We're down to 2 more episodes of the SMD Season, and the penultimate episode will be the most special yet - OverClocked Remix released their new Sonic CD album Temporal Duality, and it's this week that we will blast through this 3-disc release of cosmic proportions!
You know what SEGA Mixer Drive needs right now? An extra jolt of blast processing. That's right - the Mega Drive / Genesis has already turned 25 in Japan and will be coming close to the anniversary of its European launch next weekend. That means this weekend's SMD setlist is focused on coverage for Sega's 16-bit beauty and its everlasting legacy!
Missed your chance at contributing to last week's Free-For-All? No problem - there's another one this week! After last week's ridiculously-diverse edition, was there a franchise you wanted to see get represented that didn't, or anything you want to see more of?
That Rock DJ set last week was thrilling, wasn't it? If you want more of it, or just want to hear something else, now's your chance to have your say with this week's SEGA Mixer Drive Free-For-All!
It's the first RadioSEGA Live show for November, and SEGA Mixer Drive will go loud and proud with a hand-built DJ set! The theme is still yet to be finalised, but expect your week to start with either an uplifting set, or just being more down to earth...
There's a haunted tide riding the air, and it's set to intensify on the last week of October. Hence, for this week's SEGA Mixer Drive, we're riding the Ghost Train all the way through a Halloween edition!
Due to not being in the country, I am unable to do a live show this week. However, don't rule SEGA Mixer Drive out as it will still start your RadioSEGA LiVE weekend albeit in pre-recorded form!
Come this Friday, SEGA Mixer Drive would hit its 40th episode - not that big a milestone, but it tells how far we've come. Either way, there's going to be a Free-For-All before next week's pre-recorded show. If you're sick of racing, want more racing, or want something entirely different, the request pool is open to you!
With OutRun being October's RadioSEGA Game of the Month, it's time to look back on that plus many other SEGA racing greats with this week's Racing Edition! Sure, everyone's favorite red Ferrari may dominate the highway, but with other racers released in the past including Daytona USA, Sega Rally, Sonic R, Power Drift, Hang-On and many more, your requests will easily pile up the traffic!
There comes a time in a RadioSEGA DJ's life where 'life' starts taking over and disrupting the norm. My time happens to be this week as I will be completely unavailable on Friday night; however, SEGA Mixer Drive is still going on ahead albeit being moved to a Saturday for this week.
So for three weeks straight, SMD has been out-of-the-ordinary due to 2 theme weeks and an album release. It's natural that there's some new release catching up to do, and this week's Free-For-All is going to do just that!
It's September 9, it's the Dreamcast's anniversary, but in another corner of the web a certain Treasure game turned 20 to a quieter fanfare. Thankfully, OverClocked Remix is there - with the release of their Gunstar Heroes album 'Be Aggressive'! And it's on this Friday's show that SEGA Mixer Drive will play through the album in full!
September 9th 1999. The day Sega released the Dreamcast in the United States. Even though it went on to be Sega's last hurrah as a console manufacturer, they went all out with exciting games for the system, and it's in this week's SEGA Mixer Drive that the show will be paying homage to this 128-bit powerhouse!
It's amusing that all 5 most recent blog posts would involve SMD, but that's beside the point. This Friday's show goes towards all things patriotic with a setlist comprised entirely of British musicians! This will be 2 weeks ahead of Alcon at Leicester, and what better way to mark the occasion than to focus a show on RadioSEGA's home turf?
So it's the second-to-last week of August, the last show of this month is a themed week, and so is the first show of September. If a no-holds-barred slot interests you, now's your chance to chip in with Friday's SEGA Mixer Drive Free-For-All!
You've been wondering all week where this week's SMD is going to go right? Yes? No? Whether you have or not, I will tell you anyway. I've been listening to the new releases of this week, and so we are going in the direction of a Retro based DJ Mixer Drive tomorrow!
Post-SoS blues getting the better of you? Don't worry too much - RS's familiar faces are back in full swing this weekend doing what they do best. Regardless of feelings, how does a good ol' SMD Free-For-All sound to start this coming weekend?
So yes, Summer of Sonic. It's going to be a big event this coming weekend, that's for sure, with lots of Sega fans making their way over. But guess who is the only RS DJ staying behind and will put on a show anyway - the only live broadcast for next weekend at all? THIS girl.
This was jokingly brought up back in Episode 4 (a.k.a. The RS Character Battle special, or "The One With All the Fish Puns"). It was even suggested as a potential theme to fill empty theme week space. And it even won an entire listener poll for that very spot. This Friday, your catch of the day will make its arrival - it's Fish Friday!
School's out for Summer! With Fish Friday / Summer of Sonic / Sonic Boom all just looming around the corner, it's time to let your feelings run wild with a Free-For-All! Got Sonic on the brain? Want a change of pace with OutRun, Space Harrier, or even Fantasy Zone? Craving for metal? Or are you in the mood for just plain ol' dubstep? Whichever you want, the Free-For-All knows no bounds!
It's not often these happen, but the 'DJ Mixer Drive' editions of SMD focus on setlists catered to a particular musical theme, and with the way July is treating us, it makes it ideal for Friday's show to take us out into the sun-baked streets and take in musicians with live instruments - a 'Live Performance' driven show!
July is in full swing, and that brings SEGA Mixer Drive onto a fresh clean slate for a new month. Let's start with a Free-For-All, so anything goes - game, genre, system, arranger... there's no limitations, so let's make it a varied outlook to start the month!
What a way into Summer this has been! A night of dance, a mega-weekend of Sonic, and just about everything else in between... but is there still a craving for more? Or do you want to hear something different? Whichever is the case, anything goes in Friday's Free-For-All!
On June 23 1991, the original Sonic the Hedgehog made its worldwide launch for the Mega Drive. 22 years and dozens of games later, SEGA Mixer Drive will dedicate next Friday's show to the vast fan-arranged coverage the series' music scores received - and you're in control!
Can you feel the sunshine? Not yet? Well you will do soon as the last Sega Mixer Drive for this Spring will get you ready for the Summer heat ahead - and shuffling with two feet firmly on the ground!
It's the start of a new month and already there's a lot of new material to catch up on with this week's SEGA Mixer Drive. It doesn't however mean there's little request room - in fact, it's a free-for-all so any game goes this week! How do you guys want to start your RadioSEGA Live June?
SEGA Mixer Drive is taking a major nostalgia trip next week as we return to Sega's roots with 80s Night! A golden era where many game companies got their starts, Sega pushed themselves hard through the Arcades, the SG-1000, the Master System and only just squeezing in the JP/US launch of a little-known system known as the Mega Drive...
What an exciting month May has been - there had been many special events throughout RadioSEGA's show roster, and as the month nears its end, SEGA Mixer Drive is settling down this Friday and is directing its focus all upon you with a Free-For-All! Anything goes - what do you want to hear this week?
Next weekend is the anniversary of the Sega Saturn and its launch in the United States! And we will be getting into the spirit by having an entire evening dedicated to remixes for Sega's 32-bit disc-reading powerhouse! Sonic R, NiGHTS, Burning Rangers, Panzer Dragoon, Sega Rally, Virtua Fighter... there are many options out there for the taking, and which do you want to hear?
Most past episodes of SEGA Mixer Drive would have roughly half of the setlist dedicated to remixes for Sonic the Hedgehog. However, we are RadioSEGA, and in a change of pace, next week's show is dubbed 'Sonic Free Week'! Everyone's got their hidden passions outside of Sonic, right? Let's see how far we can take the setlist!
Our first themed week for April cuts Sega's scope only slightly, only to focus on an entire represented genre - specifically, Sega's line of Role Playing Games! Fancy a bit of Phantasy Star? Want to cast some enlightenment for Shining? Do you want to lift us to those Skies of Arcada? Whichever you want to hear, I am all ears!
You've been waiting all winter, and now, the Sonic Stadium Music Adventure 2012 is almost ready for release! Whether it's out by next week or not remains to be seen, but SEGA Mixer Drive will be proud to present a 2-hour show packed with highlights from the 10-disc collection!
On Friday, SEGA Mixer Drive reaches double figures - and it's marked by the first themed show for March via the Comix Drive! RadioSEGA may not be raising money for Red Nose Day themselves, but it's getting in the spirit by presenting some of the most absurd and amusing remixes in existance!
It's been a good start to SEGA Mixer Drive, and March is creeping in already - though with some special show action during March, next week's Friday would be the last request free-for-all in a string of four. What do you want to hear?
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, SEGA Mixer Drive will be running a special show next Friday with all things appropriate for the holiday. Now here's the burning question - how are YOU going to serenade your loved one that night?
SEGA Mixer Drive has had a great start to its run, and next Friday the heat is on as it ties in with the RadioSEGA Character Battle 2013! Expect great remixes representing some of the most notable competitors in the duel!
Don't have cold thoughts because of the snow, because on SEGA Mixer Drive you'd be sure to feel warm -
