We are joined by Benn Cordrey, producer of While My Guitar Gently Bleeps, a 30 minute radio documentary exploring Chiptune and video game music. Isy Suttie goes on a surprising journey which combines her love of gaming and music.

We are so happy over at GameFace that Chiptune is getting this kind of mainstream exposure, opening up the scene to an entirely new set of ears. Huge respect to Benn making the effort to reach out to the likes of Rob Hubbard, Ben Daglish, SuperByte, Chiptunes = Win, .mpegasusAuracleJoe BleepsSteve McNeil & Aoife Wilson. This really is something to be celebrated and we hope it’s another step on the road to more Chip-Musicians making a living out of doing what they love.

    Between the tunes and the interviews I’d say each thing gets about a minute each with some very short commentary linking each one? How do you squeeze things in to such a short slot? An hour would have been nice 😀 though I know you’re limited in what’s available.

    A lot of these were played last night weren’t they?

    Or am I getting very badly confused?
