SEGASonic Radio is gearing itself for another Project 24 event (Sunday 5th December 2010), and to celebrate I’ve finally found time to update the podcast feed to The Sonic Hour, the radio station’s flagship live show. Presented by myself (Dreadknux) and Roareye Black, TSH has been going for something like 6 years now – almost as long as The Sonic Stadium itself!

Since our very first episode in Christmas 2003, we’ve recorded a total of 93 episodes and at least 3 specials. We’ve had several presenter line-ups to join the ‘Dread x Roareye’ tag team, from Anarchy Rat in the early days to Jemnezmy most recently, and all kinds of special guests inbetween.

Project 24 will also mark the first episode of Series 6 of The Sonic Hour. As always, we will be live on air between 6pm – 7pm GMT every Sunday (please check your timezones for your area), with #601 broadcasting on the 5th December.

A sixth series, and the 100th episode right around the corner?! How in the hell did we ever get this popular? Is it our randomness? Our lame attempts at humour? Our insistent Sonic music playlist of awesome? Police Lieutenant Smith? Lyle the Bear? Rory’s Monologue? Dodgy Dread’s Emporium of Sonic Chintz? WongWatch? Or was it just Sonic Pants?

Either way, you can now catch up with every single episode of the show! Subscribe to us on iTunes (US LinkUK link, or you can simply crack open iTunes and search for “The Sonic Hour”), hit the raw XML feed here, or just download each individual track on our Media portal. If you’re already subscribed to us on iTunes, right-click the podcast and select “Show all available episodes” and the older ones will appear.

Due to popular demand as well, all Series 4 and Series 5 episodes have been re-encoded into AAC-HE format, cutting down filesize dramatically with just as much sound quality. The m4a files can be read in almost every music program – or at least, every music program worth using that’s for sure. If you’re struggling, use either iTunes or VLC.

If you’re new to the delights of the very first regular radio broadcast in the Sonic community, why not give The Sonic Hour a spin? I warn you right now though: it’s NOT for the faint of heart, and it’s pretty explicit in content. You will most definitely lose several brain cells as well.

  1. Consider me there =D i’ve been waiting for your return Dreadknux and Roareye. Got my alarm set XD

  2. As a german I just simply HAD to listen to the Episode where you two try to talk german! XD Thanks for an enjoyable afternoon!! ;)

    PS.: You two were actually not to bad at it in my opinion. Strangely enough you sound a little french when dong it though! ^^ Personally speaking “Einfach Scheisse” will remain my favourite! ^^

  3. Say hello, Roris

  4. *Sniff* I’ve jizzled my pants when I woke up this mornin’… Probably the best piece of news I’ve had this week…

    You make me a happy-manz dude… It’s funny, I’ve stopped listening to TSH just 2 weeks ago because I wanted to give it a rest and focus on a new chapter to SSR – Blitz n’ Pieces. I’ve listened to their Season 3 and P24 shows over and over again up till now. Then amazingly I just said: “Man let’s randomly listening to TSH for a couple of eps…” This was 5 hours ago when I was sketching a brand new page to GRAND HUNTER…

    And yeah… Funny moments ahoy again, it’s so great to listen to you and Roaris taking the mickey on every show. And wow Jacob replied!! XD He’s alive! You guys are still in a relationship right? *SHOT* XD

    Anyways I will be sure to let my mates know about this, Chris and especially Adam (and no, not the T-Bird ‘Adam’… XXD), Concorde the Hedgehog ‘Adam’ would be really happy about this… And so will Travis aka Volticwind whom at one time you shouted ‘VolticWIND’ like Lynka from Captain Planet… (damn you got a lot of dedicated fans… XD).

    Also let me take the time to say just a special thank you to the both of you (and not forgetting, Anarchy Rat aka Ben, Jemnezmy aka Jo, Yuji Naka, Ken Wantanabe and his ‘parfact’ cherry blossoms…)

    Really I should be paying for this program after listening to it for so long and for so many times… Heck I’ll give ya something this Christmas or something. ;)

    Speak to you on Skype!

    One of your biggest fans,

    Elson ‘Darkspeeds’ Wong

  5. It wouldn’t be the Sonic Hour without Jacob! :)
