Now everyone, don’t panic, The Shizz will be back before you know it! In the meantime, why not let me ease your despair with a pretty cool playlist full of awesome tunes. Tonight I played a brand new cover from an0va, plus a so-far-unreleased Touhou Metal album, though I’ll give you guys the link once it comes out! It was also cYsmix’s birthday a few days ago so I played some tunes of his tonight. And here’s something I actually have a link for: Do yourself a favor and grab Amiga Hits! from Bleepstreet Records. It’s 8 euros and the conversion rate’s pretty good right now so it’s worth it even for Americans! Read on for the full playlist:

Radio OverCoat 2015-06-28: See You, Space Cowboy


This week will be the last official Radio OverCoat broadcasted live on Arecibo. Really, that doesn’t mean a lot to you podcast listeners, but for me, Arecibo was my home for 4 years. I’m a bit sad to see it go but realistically I think it’s time the station gave up the ghost and no one else was really in a position to manage the station now that TrueStar can’t do it anymore. The good news is, jmr and I have been in contact with Will from 8BitX, and we’re all packing up and moving over there 😀 So next week I’ll have a new home there.

In more somber news, Chris Squire from Yes has passed away, so in memoriam I played a few of my favorite Yes songs. And yes, that includes the 22 minute epic “The Gates of Delirium” at the end of the show. Also, Shnabubula has released VGMCast vol 5, and I played my favorite piano piece from that album, despite ironically not even being VGM :P. I also got some new tracks from memme! He doesn’t have a website to download any of his songs at, unfortunately, but there is a soundcloud page. While you’re on Soundcloud, go check out Maxo’s latest, I played his new track “Crush~” tonight as well. Also I think it bears mentioning, but I started tonight’s show off with Mongolian rap music from Ethnic Zorigoo. Get a load of that! Read on for the full playlist:
