The first show will concentrate on new releases and upcoming events, while the second show will focus on the past releases, with interviews and a special segment discussing the major game music releases of 20 years ago. In addition to these regular features, there will also be a Doujin Profile segment, highlighting a doujin artist and featuring some of their works. Each show will also have a request section as well as a Q&A segment.

Your Hosts

Audi "Akumu" hails from Norway and is one of the world's most knowledgeable experts on music in the doujin and remix scenes. Since an early age, he has collected video game music, but he has also traveled the world meeting many composers and remixers, acquiring a collection of interesting stories in the process.

Carl Larson is from America and has been an avid collector of Japanese game music for over a decade, searching out obscure albums from the past as well as enjoying current hits. With respect for early record labels like GMO and Scitron, his interest in the business side of soundtrack publishing and artist marketing inspires his visits to Tokyo in hopes of establishing future game music collaborations.
