Episode 159: Free Play 17

On this month's episode, Rob is out sick, but not to worry - Brent is joined by special guest co-host Jake Kaufman aka virt.  Jake Kaufman is a prolific video game music composer, responsible for the soundtracks to games such as Shovel Knight, Contra 4, DuckTales: Remastered, and Double Dragon Neon.  Also, the Legacy Music Hour Christmas Carolers perform some VGM Karaoke with lyrics written by LMH user pendaflux.  NOTE: The gang had forgotten to take a photo with Jake, so they just used last month's photo with a bit of alteration.  Full track listing below.
