Tuesday 9th June 2009

People who like videogames and who have ears rejoice: Europe’s favourite* videogames radio show has returned – bigger** and better*** than ever.

One Life Left series five kicked off on London’s Resonance FM last night as Ste Curran, Simon Byron and Ann Scantlebury returned to the airwaves with their celebrated mix of news, reviews, chat, almost-slander and music.

Joining the team in the studio was revered writer Jon Blyth, who flew in from LA especially to be a part of the airwaves’ brightest and best videogames radio show.

There are new features, a new phone number – the ANN-saphone – where you can leave us message, and lots of other brilliant stuff.

“You never realise what you had until you no longer have it,” says Ste Curran, co-presenter, One Life Left. “Now we’re back, people don’t need to worry about that sort of thing.”

“Series five is literally our best series ever,” adds Simon Byron, co-presenter One Life Left, “in terms of the number after ‘series’. We’ve big plans for the show over the coming weeks, none of which we’ll action.”

“I’ve got a cat,” adds newsfox Ann Scantlebury, who’s put on weight thanks to Wii Fit.
