Episode 4-1: The RPG Maestro, Yasunori Mitsuda

Very Good Music: A VGM Podcast show

Summary: <p>Greetings, Gamers, and welcome to Season 4! This season is all about composers! Some of the folks we'll discuss this season may be new names for you, and a few will be very well-known. Our first focus is a special one, though. Yasunori Mitsuda is possibly most well-known as the composer of the phenomenal soundtrack to the equaly phenomenal Super Nintendo RPG classic, Chrono Trigger. But that was just the beginning. </p> <p>This episode explores a lot of Very Good Music, as always, and ventures into realms of this maestro's discography that surprised even the two of us, who have long counted him among our favorite composers! We can't think of a better way to start this new phase of our VGM road trip, and we're excited to have you along for the ride!</p> <p>Thanks as always to our amazing patrons and the artists who made our show art and theme song.
