Who is Nick Doane?
Nick Doane is a member of the Final Fantasy Tribute Band, The World Is Square, rocking the keyboard, percussion, and the undisputed master of the Glockenspiel.
What is Retro ROCK IT?
From Nick: “A radio show bringing to light the best games in the world you’ve (probably) never heard of!
Each show will feature 1 main game which I will play many songs or audio tracks from, I’ll try to illustrate why you NEED to KNOW/PLAY the game and I’ll try to bring to life the best parts of the game. But, beyond that, I’ll also be playing lots of other video game music, some VGM and I’ll have some general thoughts/rambling on video games/gaming. And who knows, maybe some ‘special guests’ will join me from time to time!”
This week I’ll feature the first RPG that got me hook, line and sinker – Lunar: The Silver Star for Sega CD! I can’t believe this game came out 20 YEARS ago! Tune into 8bitx.com at 5PM Sunday!
Tune in to the 8bitX Radio Network this week for TWO NEW SHOWS!
First off, making its official LIVE debut on 8bitX, it’s G-town Radio’s The Black Tribbles! Too cool to be geeks, too cute to be nerds, the Philly-based Black Tribbles go live every week to talk TV, comics, games and pop culture! Tune in at 9:00 PM Eastern this Thursday!
Then, this Sunday at 7:00 PM Eastern, it’s Gettin’ Weird with Josh & Nole! Drop on in for your weekly dose of beer, VGM chat, and wonderful nonsense!
