Jessica Curry to host Classic FM video game music show
The UK’s premier classical music radio station, Classic FM, has done incredible things for the mainstream recognition of video game music in recent years. Orchestral soundtracks, arranged adaptations, and concert performances of video game music have been frequently broadcasted by the channels. Several game music favourites also regularly feature on their annual public-voted Hall of Fame chart.
Classic FM have announced that, as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations, they will continue these efforts with a new radio show dedicated to symphonic video game music. The six-week series will start on April 22 and will run every Saturday from 9 pm to 10 pm.
The radio station have found an ideal host for the broadcast, VGMO favourite Jessica Curry, the artist behind artistically-driven soundtracks such as Dear Esther and Everybody’s Gone to Rapture. Curry revealed her excitement about the new role on her Twitter feed, saying “this is genuinely one of the most exciting things ever for me and I hope you’ll all tune in!”
