Did you ever want your local gym to stop playing the same classic rock anthems all day long? Is it your dream to pump iron with your gym-mates to some sweet SNES tunes? Finally hit your dead-lift PR while screaming the melodies from your favorite Falcom Sound Team songs? We talk all about that, and answer your questions from Facebook on this episode!
Junkyard (Stage 3) – Rollergames – NES – Atsushi Fujio
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.
