View Full Version : Radio Umby: The Realization!

09-10-2012, 05:49 PM
Thanks to Guild for the amazing logo!

Hey, for those of you who don't know, I'm the friendly neighborhood Umby. I've posted mostly in the Mafia threads, and it was the main reason why I jumped out merely lurking the boards. A select few of you have been on the mafia side of things with me, and those few should remember that I love to share my music with others.

Well, today, it has been confirmed that Radio Umby, as I called it back then, shall become a full fledged realization. I have been FCC Trained to be on air, and as of this coming Saturday, I will be a DJ. However, the specific reason I post it on Talking Time is that this show is called The Arcade. From 3 PM to 5 PM Central every Saturday, my co-DJ (who has been doing this show for about three years now) and I will be playing video game music and remixes for everyone to hear. I will be heading things from 4:00 PM to 4:30 PM, and my co-DJ will be making the playlist for the rest.

That's where you, Talking Time, come in! I want to make this radio show my personal love letter to the forum. Here are the details:

Click on this link (http://www.klsuradio.fm/klsuLive.html) and listen live from 3 PM to 5 PM to listen to DJ Gameboy and DJ Miniboss (that's me!) do their thing. Call 225-578-5578 to make a request (and ask for DJ Miniboss or Umby)! Post in this thread and point me to new or long-existing OSTs or video game remix albums that you love. MAKE THIS YOUR SHOW, TT.

The theme for this coming Saturday will be Capcom! I currently have a show of Phoenix Wright, Megaman, and Ducktales, but I could certainly use some more diversity in my half-hour.

Will do! I'll call in and ask for aaaaalll the Resident Evils!

Congrats on becoming a Real Life DJ!

I'll definitely be listening in when I get the chance.

09-12-2012, 10:47 PM
Hell yes I'll call in.

09-12-2012, 10:56 PM
What does it take to get FCC licensed anyways these days, just promise you won't describe necrotic genitalia on air?

MAKE THIS YOUR SHOW, TT.Half an hour of Pressure Cooker and the field song from Nier with the pretty vocals, got it.

Okay I got that out of my system. Seriously though that's pretty rad stuff, have you considered playing chiptune and squarewave stuff in addition to straight up VGM?

09-13-2012, 06:08 AM
I don't personally have any chiptune or squarewave, but DJ Gameboy has a lot of it. Since we're doing a Capcom themed show, however, I don't know if he'll play some unless YOU REQUEST IT.

And I had to do a worksheet for FCC Training, ok? :P

09-13-2012, 06:28 AM

Is that Central time? I probably can listen on my way home from work. Neat!

E: Oh, der, you said Saturday. So on my day off, even better.

09-13-2012, 06:31 AM
Somehow I forgot to add that it is, indeed, central time.

09-13-2012, 08:58 PM
Ooh this sounds cool. I probably won't be near a radio at that time this Saturday but will check it out later on!

09-13-2012, 11:26 PM
Congrats on your gig, Umby! I'd love to call in but I'll be out working when your show is on =(

09-15-2012, 12:44 PM
All right, guys, T minus fifteen minutes to the show. Click on this link (http://www.klsuradio.fm/klsuLive.html) so that you can listen live, and call 225-578-5578 to request some songs. Ask for DJ Miniboss (or Umby, I'll respond to both) if you want to chat for a little!

09-15-2012, 02:44 PM
Awesome show Umby. I probably won't call in, but I'll try listening when I can.

09-15-2012, 03:41 PM
Thanks for everyone who called in, namely Heron and Destil! I hope everyone else who was listening really enjoyed the show and will tune in next week. I was kind of nervous on air, but I wasn't toooooooo bad.

For those who missed the show or want to hear it again, the playlist has been uploaded to 8 Tracks here! (http://8tracks.com/xxgameboyxx/2012-9-15)

Any suggestions you guys can make to improve my performance or quality of the show will be appreciated, and make sure to tune in next week and to call in.

09-21-2012, 12:12 PM

Great special on The OneUps this week on my segment of the Arcade! I'll put up the 8tracks we create from our playlists as soon as this show is over, so you guys can listen to our shows whether you're listening as it happens or you're in the car driving to work on the weekdays.

10-21-2012, 01:33 PM
All the links and some descriptions edited into the Original Post! Listen wherever you are in the space-time continuum thanks to your iPods and Smartphones!

10-25-2012, 02:16 PM
Hey, Talking Time, I need your help! This Saturday will be the Halloween Special, and I was requests and suggestions to fill out an hour playlist of HALLOWEENY music! The playlist will go live at Saturday at 3 PM through 5 PM (my cohost is doing his own one hour playlist), so be sure to listen in!

10-25-2012, 02:19 PM
First thing to pop into my head is Majora's Mask, but I'm not sure what would be good "radio" music from that.

10-25-2012, 02:23 PM
Doesn't particularly have to be good radio music as much as something that will evoke an image from gamers, although being good radio music isn't so bad.

i.e. I'm probably using the background music from the Giygas fight in Earthbound for one of my talkbreaks!

10-25-2012, 02:36 PM
How was I not aware of this.

I will make this a priority.

10-25-2012, 02:44 PM
Ghosts'n Goblins is the obvious choice for Halloween-type music.

10-25-2012, 02:47 PM
I keep thinking of something from Silent Hill 1 or 2 but most of the music in the games that I enjoy are the less creepy ones (or on the more melancholy end of things). Though some of the bosses' themes from either of them might work.

10-25-2012, 02:52 PM
The fact that the song is from Silent Hill may be enough. I'll look into obtaining their soundtracks for my NEFARIOUS WORK

Currently rooting through Amnesia: Dark Descent music!

10-25-2012, 07:04 PM
Ohhhhhh yes, this playlist is downright spooky, mysterious, and moody! Get ready for the Halloween special of your lives. (I may have used some things from the REMIX THUNDERDOME, so sue me. :P )

10-25-2012, 09:50 PM
I pretty much have TOO MUCH Castlevania! Not a bad thing, though.

10-27-2012, 07:06 AM
I am incredibly excited for the show today! Like I said earlier, this is the Halloween Special show, with lots of your favorite songs from spooky and mysterious games (or spooky and mysterious songs from your favorite games, either way works). Tune in from 3 PM to 5 PM Central at this url via streaming (http://www.lsureveille.com/klsu/)!

10-27-2012, 12:58 PM
And we'll be on in three minutes! If you have a request, call in at 225-578-5578.

10-29-2012, 02:16 PM
For some odd reason, the stream wasn't working on the KLSU site. Which is a shame! But good news otherwise:

The 8Tracks for last week's Halloween special can be found here (http://8tracks.com/xxgameboyxx/the-arcade-2012-10-27). Put it on while getting ready for Halloween Festivities or while giving candy to Trick-or-Treaters!

11-02-2012, 07:07 PM
Kirby special tomorrow on the Midstage Miniboss, celebrating his 20th anniversary. Apparently an interview with a OverClocked Remix will be interviewed during the show!

11-03-2012, 01:05 PM
And we're on! Go to the KLSU website, download the stream (the in-client steam doesn't seem to work right now...) and listen in live! Mazedude (OCRemix Artist) special for DJ Gameboy's segment, then a Kirby special for my own segment to close out the show.

11-10-2012, 09:55 AM
Well, DJ Gameboy is in the repair shop (read: ER) and thus the show falls to me.

In celebration of Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and much more importantly the impending release of the Wii U, I am having a huge Nintendo Bonanza! For the first hour or so, enjoy Mario and Zelda Big Band in its entirety! Then, for the next hour, enjoy a playlist of the most iconic Mario songs and newer songs that should be recognized.

11-10-2012, 10:23 PM
Glad to hear you've been enjoying it! I need to link last week's playlist and make this week's playlist, but they should be up soon.

11-11-2012, 01:03 AM
That rendition of SMB3's ending was absolutely phenomenal.

11-11-2012, 07:50 PM
Mario and Zelda: Big Band is an incredibly legitimate album. If you don't have it yet, pick it up!

11-14-2012, 03:39 PM
Although this is completely unrelated except for being about music and myself, I will be playing in a Laptop Orchestra at 7:30 PM Central tonight! If you want to see the stream and have your mind opened to new kinds of music, you can find the stream here (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/lsu-school-of-music).

11-14-2012, 08:10 PM
I listened to your thing! It wasn't my kind of music, I'm not really into low key ambient stuff, but its super interesting what you guys are doing with synced up laptops and stuff.

11-14-2012, 08:35 PM
It was unfortunate, because the later half of the show had a lot of very loud and interesting things! I knew some people would be turned off by the first half, but thanks for giving it a listen.

11-17-2012, 12:49 PM
This week's Midstage Miniboss Theme will be songs with food in the title, in anticipation for Thanksgiving. Tune in from 3 PM to 5 PM Central to get your video game music fix!

12-01-2012, 12:12 PM
This week is a very special week, as I will be playing everyone's favorite Ice Level themes and remixes in celebration of the Holiday Season! Don't forget to listen in!

I'll be updating the 8Tracks listing very soon for those of you unable to listen to these shows live or ones who want to relive the playists!

12-07-2012, 06:58 PM
I have updated the front page with all the playlists so far! I hope you all are digging them.

This week will be the final week for the show this semester. I'm doing an hour-long show of some favorites from Midstage Minibosses past. If you have any recommendations, get them to me, and they will definitely be on the playlist!

12-16-2012, 11:13 AM
All right, the front page is updated with the playlist for yesterday's show with no real theme, as well as with Guild's amazing logo!

12-29-2012, 11:10 AM
Today's theme: Holiday special! We will be playing all sorts of holiday themed music and I'll throw in some more ice levels for good measure. Be on the stream at 3 PM Central to hear!

Near the middle of the show, at about 4 PM, DJ Gameboy and myself will be talking about our favorite games we've played this year. If you feel like calling us up and telling us your own favorite games of the year, or maybe tossing us a request, just give us a call at the usual number (225-578-5578)!

01-14-2013, 01:33 PM
Updated the main page with more playlists, and soon there will be a thread in the Let's Play forum with DJ Gameboy and my videos. Look forward to that!

02-02-2013, 02:28 PM
Playlists have been updated. If you guys are interested in seeing two goofballs duke it out in various video games, I now have a thread in the LP forum! Link is here (http://www.talking-time.net/showthread.php?t=13906).

03-30-2013, 06:44 PM
An update is highly due for both The Arcade and now my new show. Expect one soon.
