Episode 91 - Best of Season 7The curtain falls on another run of Select BGM as Rich and Jon select their sweetest samples from this season of sloppy showmanship. Just remember, you can't deliver quality Manwich without the slop. Look for our return the weekend of September 23rd. As always thanks for listening, London Calling, and Geordi makes it go at Select BGM.

Episode 90 - High OctaneThere's an explosive kick from the Intermountain West and it's called Select BGM! Step out of your Hooverville, strap on your gear and get ready for some raucous selections of hard driving, hard hitting, fast and frantic video game music. Jon and Rich wrap up the regular season with an explosive punch and the usual devil may care attitude. You paid for the full seat but you'll only need the edge at Select BGM.

Listen, that last podcast was played, so I have to post this message. I hope you liked the podcast, and if you want to say something, say something, or not. It's sort of an invitation to an imaginary ball.
Say what you will or won't, and it'll probably be won't. So what, thanks for listening.

My main PC got blown up after I tried powering it back up after a big power surge in the area. I bought a new power supply, but nope, no go, still whined.
I ordered a CPU, Motherboard, and RAM, spent about 300 bucks, and got it today. I put it together, put my old hard disk in, and voila, back in action! That was pretty great. Windows 10 just worked in the new build without any problems. I'm impressed.

Since we're on a break right now, I'll get to fixing up this site a bit. One thing I found out is that I don't have backups, but thankfully deletes aren't cascading so I was able to restore a message I accidentally deleted.
Another thing is that there is no way to know if there are replies. I'll look into sorting posts by activity and maybe flag new replies. Custom websites always start out sort of lacking.
Thanks Greg E from Salt Lake and John from North Carolina for checking out the site (and others who've registered but only lurk). There isn't much to see yet and the site still needs work, but it'll get there.
Word to Pepto,
There are no comments.

Another episode is recorded and ready for your listening. I ended up getting a little bit more buzzed than normal for this episode.

Yeah, sorry. We we were late with the last episode and didn't get to it until Monday. Also sorry for not having one for this weekend. This week Jon got sick and Rich had work on Thursday night, so it'll have to wait. So what. Does anybody even listen to this mess of a show? Yeah, some of you do, and we'll have your episode for you next Saturday. We'll try to make it a good one. Sorry, and thanks for listening.

Well, the new site is up, and I guess we can write stuff to it now. We thought we would go live last week with the Jordan Rudess episode, but I way overestimated what I could get done in a weekend and so the site couldn't go live until this weekend. Things may still be in a somewhat broken state, but things should mostly work now. Anyway, here are some pictures from the recording of the Rudess Episode.
Welcome to Select BGM! I’m Jon and this is… Jon. If you have listened to the show you’ve probably been to the old website. While classic in its simplicity, after two years it was definitely time for a revamp. I’d been harping on Rich for some time to get a new site built. Unfortunately, I’m just a simpleton with no idea how to make anything in regards to websites, computers, the tubes etcetera... “Geordi makes it go.” I applaud Rich for his continued efforts, with such a short amount of time, to get a workable community site established and usable.
Select BGM is an ongoing podcast that focuses primarily on video game music with a dash of Demoscene sound and a light peppering of miscellaneous VGM inspired tunes. It officially began with our first recording on November 8th 2014. Rich and myself’s goals were fairly simple, A) “Play the most underrated music of the modern entertainment age” and B) have creative freedom with an ongoing project.
Rich and I don’t exactly know how many people listen to Select BGM but we’re pretty sure there aren’t more than 50 worldwide (for now…) Wait, did I say “worldwide”? Yes, yes I did. We have listeners in Japan, Great Britain, Canada, Norway and of course The States to name a few. Keep in mind though, we’re not out for fame or recognition. We just love video game music and the ability to broadcast that genre of music to those with the same affirmation.
To all that listen we thank you. Please be a part of the dialogue and feel free to chime in with requests, stories, corrections, comments and or constructive criticism. Constructive being the key word. Just remember, nobody plays more Jake Kaufman then Select BGM!
