The show gets a few upgrades and add-ons this week with our focus on the TurboGrafx CD systems! Last week we looked at classic TurboGrafx 16 music, but this week is music in the classic CD audio format Redbook. It gets a little jazzy, a little funky, and then a little crazy with that Riot Zone track. I’m still not sure what’s going on there.
