It’s the most MagFest’iest time of the year! That means Pernell is travelling and partying with hundreds of music and game enthusiasts, and Rob is all alone! ALL ALONE! So enjoy this super DJ mix of synthwave style remixes and original game tunes!
Grab your keyboards let’s celebrate all the great things Yamaha did for classic game consoles and computer systems! We focus strictly on FM synth music composed for games, particularly anything with big chunky bass and funked up keyboard leads!
It’s been (ITS BEEN) TWO YEARS of the podcast, so it’s time for another celebration! But didn’t you just celebrate 100 episodes? We did! Who cares!
Rob and Pernell pick their top 5 songs of the past year, pop bottles, laugh uncontrollably at Pernell’s fake curse-words, and discover that Andore is the Sorting-Hat of the Mad Gear gang. Thanks to a gift from a special listener, things go a little off the rails.
