Welcome to the Solid State Gamer’s Channel R! This new audio show, hosted by Jon Rivera, is essentially a radio show style time block where he plays retro video game music and celebrates just how great it can get. It is amazing to see what composers have been able to achieve while working within limitations. Join in with Jon, as he explores various songs and tracks from games from numerous platforms, both familiar and obscure. Nostalgia is not required here on Channel R. As long as it is a song for a retro video game, it is fair game. We hope you enjoy!
