LMH Mixtape #108: TV Shows

The Legacy Music Hour had previously showcased tunes from video games based on animated cartoon shows, so why not cast into the television pool again with a different kind of net?  This time the Rob and Brent pull up music from the live-action side of things, from American game shows all the way to Japanese tokusatsu programs.  PRO TIP: Listen back to the original episode for some bonus discussions of Full House!

LMH Mixtape #107: Board Games

Board games and video games might seem like apples and oranges at first glance, but that analogy really sells their relationship short -- especially when they're combined!  The mixtape result of this entertainment fusion is also the perfect backdrop for contemplating further philosophical concepts, such as, "Is Connect Four a board game?" and "Has Rob F. Switch finally played Clue by now?"  So enjoy these jams from Legacy Music Hour Episode 107, which are not only THE jam, but just JAM.

Episode 219: Two

Two.  Interesting choice to call this episode "Two."  Brent and Rob cover lots of ground, lots of popular bands and artists of the 80's and 90's, that is.  Some weird mystery sounds come out of Gabe and Brent as well.  Also, a new Legacy Music Hour tribute VGM Karaoke by user Julián (aka ysy-y).  Full track listing below.
