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.

I love these new things! Can't wait to see the new radio station and I'll definitely be on the listen-out for those new IDs!

I'm going to miss hearing Navi's voice, but I'll get over it. I look forward to hearing the new station IDs!
