LMH Mixtape #137: Asiatic Music 2

How fortunate for us that the boizz decided to take a return trip to Asiatic levels and games, because it meant they brought back another handful of musical souvenirs!  This mixtape is kinda like a carousel slideshow of their trip, except that it cranks through tunes instead of pictures and is way more exciting than any vacation presentation your aunts or uncles made you sit through after family dinner.  Enjoy the tour, and maybe you'll get inspired to go on your own worldly video game travels this year.

Episode 247: Racing Games 4

It's been a while since the Legacy Music Hour did a theme focus but here we are with an all racing games episode.  NOTE: Rob's Famicom Grand Prix track was kind of wrong.  During the original recording, the track he played was a sort of combined version of two different tracks from the game, which sounded like one.  When it was discovered that the track wasn't supposed to be like that, it was replaced during the editing with the two separate tracks played back to back, but during the talking, you'll still hear that combined version and comments made about it as if it were one track, in case that's confusing.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #136: 1998

Wait, wasn't 1998 like, ten years ago?  As time keeps marching on, take a moment to listen to this mixtape and reflect on the good things you had going on at the turn of the century.  KeyGlyph was in seventh grade and had just been introduced to Pok√©mon, a three-dimensional Hyrule, and Cher's roboticized vocals in the pop hit "Believe."  Key and friends were also feverishly anticipating the North American release of the Sega Dreamcast, which they believed was going to change the world.

Now it's your turn:  What were you doing in 1998?
