Disney and video games go together like peanut butter and chocolate. And you’ve got to love the old-school Capcom disney games, but what about games outside of Capcom? What about games that aren’t about specific characters or shows, but just “Princesses” who knows! Rob and Pernell are joined by Mike and Justin from XVGM Radio to take a deep dive into the world of Disney, music, and absolute silliness!
XVGM Radio is a fine VGM podcast hosted by Justin and Mike (PixelTunes Radio). XVGM is presented in the style of a broadcast radio show, bringing you the best in video game music and composer interviews!
