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.

Listen up, Eurogamer! You’re not the only ones with fancy-schmancy mobile phone technology. Well, not for long, anyway. Mockup courtesy of OLL listener Steve Shaw. Can someone actually make this, please?

Twitter

January 16th, 2009 Posted by

As you might have seen earlier, One Life Left now has a Twitter. Do ‘follow’ us if you’ve got an account yourself and you’re interested in receiving show updates // panicked requests for material. As you might be able to tell from that ‘Tweet’ (ugh) I’m putting off fixing the site up a bit, too. If you’ve got a dull weekend ahead and fancy helping out, we need: 1) Some lovely graphical buttons instead of the text ‘important links’ thing, over there. Including one for Twitter, which I’ll add after I’ve written this. 2) A replacement for the (intended-as-placeholder) Ann […]

More gifts from F@keaddress

September 24th, 2008 Posted by

It turns out my present wasn’t just a memory card — there were things ON that card. First, this message: Happy birthday Ste. I have included some music files in your card by way of a gift. I do hope you like them. If not you could delete the files and take the card itself as your gift. Second, a directory called ‘music’, inside which was some music. We’ll be playing that music on the next show for sure. Sweet! And third, this artist’s impression of the gift that Ann would have received had we been around to open f@keaddress’ […]

The New Site…

September 21st, 2008 Posted by

…is getting there. Apologies for our ugly faces: that bit is PLACEHOLDER. We are now accepting replacement banners which will rotate in and out, randomly. They should be something to do with the show (and if you want they can link to various parts of the site). Size is 174×550 pixels. That’s all! Show later today — 7PM, Resonance FM, all-new features / competitions / letters / nonsense. See you there. Metaphorically.

Why Nintendo are winning the console war

September 11th, 2008 Posted by

And I guess this is why all the kids are shanking each other up on the streets. Oh videogames. In other news, I had a dream last night that instead of going to the GMAs I went to the Mercury Music Prize. I was really angry because after I realised I was at the wrong prize (which we weren’t even nominated for!) I didn’t have time to get changed, so I had to turn up in trainers. Hopefully this is not an omen. Please vote for us to win best broadcast so we don’t lose out to Elbow. That would be really embarrassing. […]

Welcome / Welcome Back

September 8th, 2008 Posted by

Hello all, Welcome to One Life Left. We’re just preparing for our relaunch at 7PM this evening. Uh oh. First: if you don’t know what the show is, this should help. The site’s new — please excuse our dust; if you can help us repaint the place we’d appreciate it — but quite soon it’ll fill up with all kinds of ex-ex-exclusive audio / blog content. And the latest podcast, of course, which will be hopefully be here from this evening. In the meantime, why not have a poke around the old site, visit the One Life Left forum or […]
