Creating new Shows - i need your suggestions
« on: 10:35, 30 June 20 »
A few months ago we had some "Artists only"-Shows from Artists having a wide range of titles on RolandRadio. But we cancelled those shows while reprogramming the system.


Now after we have a great success with the Top15-Show i think about doing more shows with specialized themes during the day.


Did you like the "Targhan only" and similar Shows and want them back?
What about theme-styled hourly shows like "Car racing tunes only" :D


"Dizzy-Special" and so on.


If you have any ideas or suggestions i'm glad to read them here.

How about something like "most-underrated-tunes" but it could be difficult to decide ;)

i can select all titles who are rated by less than 5 users (which is the limit to get into the charts calculation) and then shuffle the titles, select 20 and play them in the "most underrated titles"-Show. And if we play this show more often during the week i can reshuffle the list, so every "underrated"-Show has different titles from the whole pool of titles with low ratings

Demo-tunes only would be nice, as they tend to be a bit more modern and a bit less often played, overall.

Also nice: Pop-Song covers. Amiga (general cross platform) covers.

Demo tunes only should be possible as I tagged the productions on Roland radio if they are demos. So I can hopefully select all titles from productions which are Demos Shuffle them and generate a hourly playlist.
I#d love to have some extra informations about the musics played then but it’s hard to find some nice and informative texts for the demos or their tunes. Maybe you can provide some extra informations about your tunes? Location did, year, surroundings.

Villain and myself planned a show chipunes versus real. Where we first play the chiptune and after that the original tune.. will cost 360 euros for gems / biem but can be worth the fun.  But we ended up with only four or five tunes we found. So also help is appreciated for telling us about chip tunes that have a real world predecessor.

I have two suggestions/ideas:

1: Tracks that utilize stereo in a way that they sound good with headphones?

2: Tracks that also exists in other filetype versions for other platforms? (Play the other version too for comparison).

To slightly enhance this idea; Chris Abbott recently released an Arcade Classics remix album, so perhaps do an arcade show where you play the arcade original and one (or more) AY versions; Outrun, Alien Storm, Space Harrier, etc. Perhaps have interviews with CPCers telling how/why they converted the tune!


Or, a show that showcases the differences between C64 and CPC; Ghost & Goblins, Cybernoid (1 & 2), Stormlord, etc. Where the music we had was so different to the C64 music! I realise this will include a LOT of JDR, but that's not exactly an issue! ^_^ Again, playing both tunes!
