The Greatest Bits — Fear Factory (Donkey Kong Country)
Benjamin Briggs — Bubble Junkie (The Sound of Speed)
AeroZ — Turning Terrors
Team Teamwork, Big Boi, Cutty, Kenji Yamamoto, Minako Hamano — Shutterbug (Super Nintendo Sega Genesis)

To prevent the dastardly explosion that comes with missing episodes, subscribe to our Podcast feed or download it using this direct link, or find us on iTunes (don't forget to rate us!). Drop original compositions of yours you'd like us to play on the show in our Soundcloud dropbox.

NLFM will return on December 6. Got a request? Sound off in the comments or on Twitter.

NLFM generally focuses on music from games playable on Nintendo consoles and handhelds, which, thanks to the Virtual Console, also includes the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Master System, Turbografx-16, Neo Geo and Commodore 64. It's not all games either as we highlight musicians and albums we really like, as well as your own original gaming compositions.

The Team Teamwork link has two errors in it...

Otherwise, great podcast Jon!
I've been following you since you went weekly at year's start and I listened to all the previous podcasts as well. I've discovered quite a bit of good music since then. Thanks a lot. Keep up the good work.

Amazing stuff. Didn't think Metroid music would make a great sample for hiphop. Wish i could find the lyrics anywhere though. Thanks Jon. :)
