1990’s Japanese Satellite radio station St. GIGA

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Justin Moore, who writes:

[I recently published a post] on the history of the 1990’s Japanese Satellite radio station St. GIGA (here http://www.sothismedias.com/home/the-lunar-phases-of-st-giga ). They were a station that played ambient music and nature recordings and other stuff whose programming schedule was based on the movement of the tides. Very innovative!

Wow! Thanks for sharing this Justin. I was not familiar with St. Giga. I hope readers will comment if they listened to St. Giga in the 90s.

    St Giga was also used by Nintendo to distribute games for the Super Famicom (Super NES, in the rest of the world, not like this was implemented outside Japan) in an early and innovative use of downloadable games, including fully voiced versions of games like The Legend of Zelda and Dragon Quest.
