One Life Left is a radio show about videogames, only not really. We love games but we take them precisely as seriously as they deserve. 99% nonsense and 1% heart-stopping brilliance, they are all supposed to be fun and so are we. We have news, reviews and special guests, sure, but we also play game-related music and we have stupid game-related features like inappropriately dark-hearted poetry, gambling tips and chart news from a market stall. We're on the wonderful Resonance 104.4FM at 7PM every Monday and on the internet all the time, ever, right here.

What’s happened to Ann?

Love the show and I’m not a gamer but what’s happened to Ann?

YellowHastur ,

Loosen up.

This isn’t quite the quality of pickaxe collection. Loosen up and have a little preshow shake up. I have a lot of hope because the content and discussion is spot on. Echos too sound is a little off at time.
