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.

Chart 100 Market Economy THE RESULTS parts 1-3!

July 22nd, 2009 Posted by

I’ve been busy compiling all your votes the last few weeks and with the aid of SCIENCE on my side I have eventually come up with a DEFINITIVE list of the best games of all time. After all, who would know better than the listeners of One Life Left? It’s certainly taken up more time than I expected as there were so many variations on the gamenames ( Zelda [x] , Legend of Zelda: [x], Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, GTA: Vice City for example). And of course people who couldn’t spell (Tecken indeed..). I also took the […]

We’re going all multimedia…

June 29th, 2009 Posted by

…like an old CD-ROM. See this: It’s a boring dark square, isn’t it? Currently. But just before 7:00pm this evening, it’ll flicker into life like when Alexander Graham Bell invented the Bluray disc. And for an hour or so, you’ll be able to view StudiOLL LIVE as we broadcast to the nation’s capital over FM and the world over the Internet. It’s part of our ongoing commitment to break new ground in videogames radio. And it’s sure to be an unmitigated disaster. Listening live is the only way to get the full OLL experience, before the sanitised version is set […]

Happy ANNiversary!

April 3rd, 2009 Posted by

It was a sunny day three years ago that we climbed the rickety stairs to the Resonance FM studio to broadcast the first, and most definitely worst, One Life Left.  Actually, was it sunny? I can’t remember. Three years on, what have we learnt? Not a lot, but we do a lot less preparation now. I’m not really selling this as progress, am I? We’ve had a lot of fun over the past three years, and we hope you have too. So, thanks for listening or contributing (or listening and contributing), and libel suits pending, we’ll be making Europe’s only […]

Free Market Economy – A Week In Review

February 6th, 2009 Posted by

Or something.N ow thoroughly bored with my chart feature which was going nowhere and bored me, I’ve decided to try something a bit different which will more than likely go nowhere in a similar manner and but hopefully be less boring. So in the spirit of the Ramones; hey ho let’s go. Saturday: Didn’t work as I was in The Game City that is Nottingham, meeting loyOLL (good grief! – everyone) fans Down Home Kitty and Kevin. I have to say, for a place claiming to be Game City, I didn’t see many game shops. Cex and Game is obviously […]
