(15) Retrocast meets: Julian “Jazz” Rignall (Editor: CVG & Zapp64)

(Retro Asylum would like to proudly present you all to one of the best UK Retro gaming podcast out there “GamerDads”

Hope you all enjoy this episode of the podcast that lads recorded with retro gaming legend Julian Jaz Rignall.)

In this Gamerdads Retrocast podcast special, we celebrate the launch of the new and improved Gamerdads version 2:0 ( by meeting the LEGEND that is Mr Julian “Jazz” Rignall of CVG and mean machines magazine fame.

Now vice president of content at Gamepro media, we talk about his days as a student when he held the UK and World Record high scores on video games such as Defender, Pole Position and Crossfire, through his career in Journalism and what eventually made him quit, right through to his current position at Game Pro.

We talk about his favourite games and game music ever, what makes a good game in the first place – no matter what year it is released in – and give him the obligatory “quick fire question” round…

    I really enjoyed this! Great fun to listen too 🙂

    I wasn’t born until 1986 so I didn’t get the chance to read Zzap! and I never read C&VG, but nevertheless I agreed with pretty much everything Julian said! What a guy 🙂

    Listened to this. It was really good although the mic work was worse than ours after we improved our quality due to some weird wonkyness between the channels.

    Podcasting is one of those things where recording the mic work in Mono is a must and putting in the music as Stereo with the main file of the podcast edit being in Stereo. 😀
