Episode 17 – Music of the Mega Drive

A one-off solo episode this month that is completely different from our planned show (which will now go ahead in November). Instead, Ollie takes you through a selection of 50 of his favourite Mega Drive tunes, including tunes from all the main Sonics, most of the Streets of Rages, some of the Thunder Forces, and bits of Aladdin, Gunstar Heroes, Sunset Riders, Ristar, Mega Turrican, Lotus II and a whole load more! It’s Pod ‘Em Up Radio, and it’s on the air right now!

All music from: https://project2612.org
