This week your hosts listen to music from sky and air themed stages. These are parts of games that are not entirely about the sky, but these sections are in the clouds. Pernell tries to get his head around the realities of Little Nemo, and Rob channels his inner 90s RnB singer in what might be his favorite track of the year.
Who’s the boss!? No, we’re not talking Tony Danza. We’re talking the great boss fights and boss fight music of video games! It starts out all fun and games until the R&P brothers slowly get emotional talking about the all the bosses they’ve encountered. So make sure you’ve saved your game, stocked full of health potions, and get in on the fun! It’s music time.
We want to thank everyone for listening to the show. You’re the best and we love you. That is all 🙂
