Over the last five years, the video game music genre – known simply as ‘VGM’ by its fans – has been championed in major ways on Classic FM. VGM scores first entered the Classic FM Hall of Fame in 2012 – and, since then, we have broadcast special programmes and exclusive concerts, celebrating this hugely popular yet often neglected music.

There are plenty to choose from, and Jessica will be playing listener requests ranging from Princess Zelda and Lara Croft to Nathan Drake and Marcus Fenix. It promises to be a show packed with lush symphonic strings, and all the action you’d expect from one of music’s most exciting genres.
