News and Updates

Friday Update - October 17, 2014


"You're listening to Radio Hyrule." — The Voice, for the last three years

Today, the Minuet of Forest station ID aired for its final time. That's right, Navi no longer haunts our internet airwaves, and you'll no longer needlessly warp to the Forest Temple. Sound the bells, and pop the champagne, because we've finally updated our station IDs.

As of today, you'll start hearing not just one station ID, but several, with more on the way. We air them roughly every 14 tracks, as well as some old Nintendo commercials after every other ID.

Enjoy!

Radio Hyrule @ MAGFest 13

For the last few months, the team has been working on plans to create a new radio show and premiere it live at the next Music and Gaming Festival (aka "MAGFest"). The show is belovingly named:

"Would You Like to Hear that Again?" - The Radio Hyrule Zelda News and Trivia Quiz!

Admittedly, the name is a bit of a mouthful, but it fits the bill perfectly. Fans of NPR's hit show, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, need no further explanation, as the show is very much inspired by it. Highlights will include:
  • Special guest panelists
  • A rotating variety of quiz games
  • Chance to play from home by calling in
  • Fabulous prizes
  • Live music band for the premiere! (Pending)
It's our most ambitious show to date, and it's our goal to make it as humorous as it is entertaining. We've been saving up site funds for the last few months in order to purchase new equipment to bring with us to MAGFest, but we haven't quite saved up enough money yet.

In an effort to make this new live event possible, we will be hosting a small fundraiser right here on our site for the next two weeks. (Panel submissions for MAGFest close on Halloween.) We're hoping to raise $500 or more in that time, so we can submit our application and make travel arrangements without missing the deadline.


If you're a really big fan of our radio station and would like to see more unique content created by our team, please consider making a donation! We don't have anything to offer in exchange for right now (except the internet's largest library of streaming Zelda music!), but we promise your contributions will not go unrewarded in the near future.

Music Update - OverClocked ReMix

This week's music update includes six new tracks from OverClocked ReMix that have been released in the last few months, including a stellar piano performance by new artist Nostalvania. Other new additions include a smooth new Dark World track by OCR founder djpretzel, an orchestrated Song of Healing arrangement by George R. Powell, and a fantastic new arrangement from Hylian Lemon based on themes from Link's Awakening.

Don't miss out on these great tracks!

Postbox

As this is the first of many more Friday updates to come, we don't have any Postbox questions to address this time. Feel free to send us your questions, whether they're relating to the website, mobile apps, requesting, or just complete nonsense. We'll answer a few of them in next week's update. To submit questions, head on over to the Contact form and select the "Postbox" category option.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune into Hyrule Academy with SuperMCGamer tonight at 7pm Pacific, and have a fantastic weekend.

Radio Hyrule is Celebrating Six Years Online!



It's hard to believe how fast the time has flown by, but Radio Hyrule is about to complete its sixth year of existence! I'd like to thank everyone reading this for making it such a fun project to be a part of -- especially those who have helped me work on the site and stream backends over the years. Radio Hyrule has always been run by a small tight-knit group of Zelda fans, and we do it because we simply love sharing Zelda music with other fans. Thank YOU, fellow listener, for checking out our project. We're really excited to start heading into new territories later this year. May there be many more to come!

Now for the fun part. The celebration. The part where we get to give away stuff.

This Sunday, June 22nd, 2014, we will be holding our biggest live event to date. Prepare yourself for a full six hours of great music, panel discussions, special guests, and lots of prize giveaways! We've got a lot of great stuff coming your way, and it is sure to be a lot of fun! The Extravaganza will start at 12pm US Pacific (3pm US Eastern, 7pm GMT) and last for a solid six hours. Mark your calendars! All segments will be recorded, edited, and uploaded to the website sometime after the event if you are unable to catch it live.

Here is the programming schedule for the day, segments and special guests subject to change!



Now for the part that makes me really sad, and I'm sure many others will be upset as well. We are unfortunately unable to give away prizes to citizens living outside of the United States, or those living within the United States under the age of 18. This is due to the various sets of laws in the United States regulating giveaways and sweepstakes, and we simply do not have the time nor legal resources to find a workaround at this time. We will do our very best to try to make sure that any future prize giveaways will include ALL of our listeners from around the world. Thank you for understanding!


Prizes will include CD albums, T-shirts, posters, and ocarinas!

We look forward to bringing you this event! Hope to see you there!
