Sound Test - C'MON STEP IT UP!!! (Sonic the Hedgehog - 12-13-2019)

It is time for Sound Test to get way past cool.

Whether you've relished the blue blur in his golden years, or subjected yourself to years and years of cringe, Sonic the Hedgehog has cemented himself in the pantheon of gaming history.

Setting aside disparate opinions, we can agree on one fact: the soundtracks of Sonic titles are beyond stellar, and features some of the best video game music, 16-bit and beyond.

I'll be primarily featuring artists Masato Nakamura (Sonic 1 + 2), Jun Senoue (Crush 40, Sonic Adventure), Yuzo Koshiro (of Streets of Rage fame), and many other veteran Sega composers. As for titles, definitely gotta bust out the black sheep racing title Sonic R, the dual soundtrack Sonic CD, and of course, getting back to Pumpkin Hill with Sonic Adventure 2.

So grab your chili dogs, set your calendar back to the 1990s, and LET'S GO FAST tonight on WAYO-FM's Sound Test!
