Chip SID Show

Welcome to the ChipSID Show

This page hosts all of the episodes of the ChipSID Show as created and presented by Max Hall on Radio Free Matlock.

I originally hosted the episodes via a combination of two cloud solutions – Dropbox and Box – but the shows were only available in MP3 format. This was purely due to the file sizes of the original FLAC versions that Max supplied.

In April 2019, after 9 shows were published using the above methods, I got my arse into gear and created this ‘sort of official’ page to host the shows.

A Quick Preview

The Retro Engine released a quick 10 minute preview of an example episode back in February 2020. Click the link below to see it on YouTube.

CHIP SID SHOW 🎶 December 18th 2019 Max Hall Radio Free Matlock Ten-Minute Excerpt

Patreon Supporters

The .FLAC version is made available to the Patreon Supporters first. A few days later (hopefully), I upload the .FLAC and .MP3 files to the various cloud hosts, set up the Bit.Ly shortcuts and then everyone else can grab their copies.

The Retro Computer Museum in Leicester have been closed to vistors for most of the lockdown in the UK. We occasionally hand over our Patreon funds as a donation, but they also have a Just Giving page where you can donate money to their fighting fund.

Spreading the (down)load(s)

The downloads use Bit.Ly shortcuts. This is purely so that a full history of all the download stats up to 30 days after each episode is made available.

  • The FLAC versions will be hosted on my Dropbox account.
  • The MP3 variants will be hosted on both of my Dropbox and Box cloud sites. (I had to remove the local copies as I ran out of website space on my host very quickly!).

Please try and download from the different cloud hosts. This spreads the load and will hopefully not generate any “stop using your cloud account for FLAC and/or MP3 files” type emails from the two hosts that I’m using.

Note: If you are able to supply some bandwidth of your own for hosting all of the episodes (.FLAC, .MP3 or both), then get in touch with Max and I’ll happily add the links to wherever you’re hosting them.

Track Listing

Episodes 1 – 34 (PDF format)

Note that the layout of the PDF is designed to show a full set per sheet of landscape. Some of the early shows did fit onto a single sheet though. One of these days, I’ll convert into a PowerPoint file to make editing much easier …
