Episode 231: An 80's Christmas

This is another Christmas episode as the holiday theme seems to pop up all over the show.  Another theme is 80’s.  There’s a lot of 80’s sounds and references in this episode as well.  In the photo, Rob is trying to look like he’s poorly blowing a kiss, in case you were wondering.  There’s a also a VGM Karaoke segment at the end from Hammock of The Last Wave podcast.  Full track listing below.

  3. That's my effing early xmas present right there. CU in 2021. Thank you.

  4. The song you thought sounded like something sorta sounds like (not really but it does!) the Law and Order SVU theme:

  5. Is the mystery song Mushanga by Toto?

  6. I thought the beginning of the Monster World IV tune sounded like "Last Christmas," actually.

    I posted RAH Band in Discord, and I'm really happy Brent picked up on them! The truth is, I sat on "Clouds Across the Moon" for years thinking it was something Brent and my fellow LMH listeners would enjoy, but no place seemed quite right for sharing it. Discord was perfect!
