LMH Mixtape #157: Final Episode Podcast In Review

You may notice this is a rather short mixtape.  Only one track, in fact.  In the full episode, Brent and Rob revisited memorable clips from the podcast as they said goodbye in this “Final” Episode (Podcast In Review).  But the possibility was left open to return to the show after a period of break.  Only time would tell.  The End?...

LMH Mixtape #156: Best Of Year In Review 3

Another year comes to a close and we arrive at another Best Of Year In Review episode.  To say this one is packed with non-stop hits is an understatement.  If you're unfamiliar with how these episodes work, Brent and Rob switch off, back and forth, counting down their top ten tracks that they discovered during the year.  Rob will start things off this year with his number ten, and you can take it from there.

Episode 255: Beyond 16-Bit 8

Beyond 16-Bit 8, that's a bit of a confusing title, no?  Anyway, you know how it is.  Every now and then, the Legacy Music Hour does an episode that features video game music from BEYOND the fourth generation of video games.  And yet, like other beyond focuses, this episode ends up sounding pretty retro.  Rob gets serious at one point about a subject near and dear to him, by the way, speaking of bygone eras, so brace yourself for that.  And, well, have fun listening to some of this "modern" music, and actually, some of these tracks really are from brand new games that came out this year, so there probably shouldn't be quotation marks there.  Full track listing below.
