Can anyone remind me what issues the other two CDs came with so that I can ensure they are in the right place? I ripped them so I could listen and now they are hanging around my office.
Issue 179 - Music CD Volume 1: C64 Remix
Issue 192 - Music CD Volume 2: Rob Hubbard Remixed C64

Re: Questions for Big Boy Barry (off the telly. In the 90s)

How are your EA Hockey skills today?

Have you kept in touch with Donna Air?

Do you prefer symmetrical or asymmetrical analogue sticks?

Behind The Bits or Beyond The Bytes would take a look behind one game of a particularly genre to explain its inner workings.
