Updated below with answer and winner …
Longtime listeners to the GeekWire radio show and podcast may have noticed that we have a new intro for our weekly Name that Tech Tune contest. KIRO Radio’s Erynn Rose, who puts together the show each week, created the intro using a bunch of cool little tunes and sounds, and we decided it would be fun to focus on one of them as the subject of this week’s contest.
It’s a song from a classic video game, and we’ll admit this isn’t an easy one. Up for grabs is a pair of tickets to the GeekWire Ping-Pong & Anniversary Bash, coming up March 6 at the Showbox SoDo in Seattle. If you think you know the source of the tune below, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you ready? Here’s the tune.
If you’re stumped, here’s the full Name that Tech Tune segment from this week’s GeekWire radio show and podcast, which might give you a little more context, at least.
If you think you know the answer, send it to email@example.com. We’ll give the answer and announce the winner next week.
