One Life Left

Definitely the UK's favourite radio show (sort of) about videogames.


Commissioned by London’s award-winning Resonance 104.4 FM in early 2006, One Life Left was only meant to run for six episodes.

Take that, The Man because now, somewhere around one hundred and fifty episodes later, it’s in its seventh season and grown from humbling, terrified, fumbling beginnings into one of the station’s most valued shows.

Take THAT, The Man. Also take that, British radio standards.

We’re One Life Left’s parents and we love all our children, but our eightieth (recognised) child was certainly born under a bad sign. Seconds before the show started we were shouted at by our beautiful engineer, Maria, for a crime we didn’t commit, so we shouted back; and then, when the show finally started, two of the mics weren’t working. The only person who could save us? Maria. Uh oh!

But save us she did and so, beginning with an early hit of mood-music to cover up the tense sounds of an audio caesarian, episode eight of season four pukes and mewls its way into your ears. This episode: Craig, Derek, Mathew and Taliah all entertain with winning contributions, a couple of engagements for you to add to your diaries, some news of some NEW OLL merchandise and a very, very, very special guest.

And gossip, reviews, news, Simon Byron’s Memoirs, etc.

Music in #80:

Destiny’s Child // Say My Name by Copy
Niji No Kawa by she
Animal Crossing Traveling OC ReMix by Kaijin

    If I write some fanfic about the things I’d like to do to Simons mum, would I be arrested?

    I’m hoping to be there on Thursday, though I may have trouble reconciling it being held in a curry restaurant and me being unable to it curry.

  4. Audiosurf! Audiosurf is the only excuse you ever need to link ANY song to games.

    Uhmmm… weak connection? I guess if you get the high score for that song, THAT’D be a stronger link.

    Great show this week, by the way, chaps.
