Welcome to the first of several episodes that RGDS will be releasing to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of the Sega Mega Drive in Japan, hosted by our very own Matt L.
The Mega Drive was a big hit amongst fans of the early grey import scene, and we thought there was nobody better to guest on the show than Colin Dimond, the former co-owner of the infamous Console Concepts import store, based in Stoke-on-Trent during the late 80’s and early 90s.
Colin gives his expert insight into the impact the MD had on the import scene, where the MD lays amongst its competitors of the time and the legacy it left on the industry.
This is a fascinating conversation, and if you enjoyed Colin’s last appearance on RGDS in EP 197 (The Golden Age of Imports), you’ll simply love this one too.
All music on this episode is sourced from YouTube channel - Savaged Regime.
The author reproduces famous video game tracks (particularly Mega Drive) using the MD’s own Yamaha 2616 sound processor, but vastly more detailed. Some of the tracks you will recognise, but will never have heard them so good!
