If we’re talking podcasts on LMC, you can’t not start the conversation with Radio Redux. Back in the ‘Sonic Wrecks’ days, Radio Redux was the cornerstone of SEGA/Sonic podcasts. Originally just something you could download off the site as a fun side-project, Redux was the first Sonic-centric podcast in the world, the first listed on iTunes and among the first in the video game category altogether. The first to dual-cast on both two main SEGA community stations – SEGASonic:Radio and RadioSEGA – before it eventually shed the restrictions on SEGA music and just did whatever the heck it wanted. The weekly/fortnightly show hosted by Kevin would go on for 200 episodes of news, humour, music, remixes, skits, karaoke contests and sassy guests before he hung up his microphone in 2014 as part of the changeover from Sonic Wrecks to Last Minute Continue.
Nearly three years later, LMC’s good friends at RadioSEGA asked: “Would you come back as a one-off surprise for our Winterfest event?” Kevin obliged. Four years of “specials” later Radio Redux has been resurrected.
Run the titles.

LATEST SITE UPDATES ABOUT THE SHOW
ABOUT RADIO REDUX
It’s somewhat hard to imagine now, but there was a time when podcasting was this new and revolutionary thing. When iTunes was this little upstart music platform created by Apple that only a few geeky people had heard of and there was a time when the only SEGA community outlet with real "radio" content was SEGASonic:Radio. In creating Radio Redux I wanted to create a unique brand show, I wanted a podcast (bandwagon-ers gotta bandwagon) primarily as there was no other video game podcast at the time focusing on SEGA or Sonic. I also wanted to move away from the livecast formats in use, much like I wanted to change the stuck-in-a-rut sprite comic format with Sonic Wrecks. Try and up... well, maybe not the professionalism as there were obvious limits to that... but at least up the quality of the show. This would result in the creation of various show segments which evolved over time. Radio Redux the first Sonic-centric podcast in the world, it was also one of the first video games related podcasts and one of the first officially classified video games podcasts period. Not bad considering they had to be uploaded on 56k for several years. Time passes and Radio Redux is nothing like what it used to be, for the betterment, yet even 15 years after episode one people still speak fondly for the show. Old listeners still get excited by the first bars of "Y'Know" and three simple words that were never meant to become a catchphrase.
