 Big SID update at Kohina APR 13 2003
A few days ago there was a big update at Kohina, the old-school game and demo radio station. The update consists of nearly 40 SID-tunes, amounting to an extra two-hours of c64 airplay. Very handy if you?re connecting to the ?net on something other than a 56k modem. Ahem.
Now we just need to get them to add more AY tunes and I?ll be happy.
 SID Composers paid ?20,000 since 1998 by APR 13 2003 announces it has now paid over ?20,000 in total to SID composers since the first remix CD release in 1998 („Back in Time 1“)

This represents the lion?s share of the profits on the CDs, with the rest being spent on live events such as „Back in Time Live“, investment in more CDs, and equipment to produce better remixes. releases C64 remix CDs for the good of the original composers, and this figure was made public to highlight that support. is also using its time and resources for composers such as Rob Hubbard, Ben Daglish and Martin Galway in protecting their work from unauthorised commercial usage like Zombie Nation, and in encouraging the music world to take more notice of C64 music and the SID sound: a strategy will see C64-related albums and singles coming from other record labels by the end of the year, around the world.
