WVGM's number 1 radio personality, Arm Chair, plays his favorite smooth jams from the past year of Rhythm and Pixels!

We continue our tradition of bizarre topics for music selections with a surprise suggestion from a guest! Award winning game composer, and all around excellent person, Mitchel Wong joins us on the show to explore animals and farms! In video games! We also have some lengthy discussions about Animal Crossing, Final Fantasy, and our very special Sonic the Hedgehog fan-fiction original-characters! What's yours?
Villains are just plain terrible. Sometimes they're trying to end the world, sometimes they're turning woodland creatures into evil robots. But mostly all they want is to bring back swing music in the 90s, big brass bands and all. We have Cameron from The Mad Gear and joining us to sing along with these villainous hits, and think back fondly of all the bad guys who tried to destroy us.
We've done it! Three years of podcasts, video game music, and friendship! Let's reflect back on our favorite tracks and episodes of the last year, you may be surprised at what we pick! There's celebratory beverages, behind-the-scenes podcast stories, and fun trivia quizzes which Pernell is way too good at.
Framed for a crime we're 99% sure they didn't commit, Rob and Pernell listen to music on the run. Looking for their arch-nemesis, the criminal that set the police on their trail. And their enemies in their path.
Josh and Keyglyph from The VGM Jukebox podcast have lost their Haunted Jukebox! The only way to find The Haunted Jukebox? With jazz-club inspired video game music!
They travel from their Overworld and into Rob and Pernell's listening room! It's a mystery of Scooby-Doo levels, and a cross-over more awesome than when The Flintstones met The Jetsons!

Today on the show Rob and Pernell start their own Major League Podcast team, the Wilmington Chiptuners! Not really though, this week's episode is all about video game characters who carry bats! Or big sticks! Or you know, something like that... we've got all sorts of ideas. We talk about the nostalgia we have for places we used to live, the romance of Tommy Lasord, and how to navigate the spirit world of Weehawken New Jersey.
