Have you ever played a video game and thought, this song just doesn't belong? Or maybe, wow this track is way better than anything else? And in some cases, the song is just plain wacky! This week on the show we're listening to funky jams and wacky vocal samples in great classic video games! Joining us this week is friend and fellow podcaster Rayjkayj! Rayjkayj is the host of the fine podcast VGMporium! Shopping for some great music or obscure video game tunes?

We're back at it again with the wacky game topics! And don't think for a second that Pernell isn't going to rap like MC Hammer at some point during the show! When all your pixels are hammers, every game looks like a nail! Or something like that.
Sometimes video game music is full of cheese in the best way. I'm talking saxophones, jazzy piano chords, and that feeling you're in a department store elevator. Or even better, the feeling that you're about to watch your favorite network family sitcom from the 90s! So much Sega Saturn, SO MUCH.
Joining us on this journey is Hammock, host of the fabulously-smooth VGM podcast KVGM The Last Wave. If you want jazzy, chill, and smooth, then Hammock is your man. And KVGM is your podcast! Check it out! https://kvgmradio.blogspot.com/
This week we take a second look at music composed specifically for world maps in games. We are honored to have a musical guest joining us, Amanda Lepre from the band Descendants of Erdrick! She brings her vast musical insight and love of fantasy RPG's to the conversation. We discuss how important it is for world map music to create the mood, emotionally setting up the player for a new section of the game.
