Episode 252: Dear My Brother

In this episode of the Legacy Music Hour, Brent, Rob, and Gabe REview or simply view (with their ears) some great tracks as usual, but they also figure out how to write a letter to someone special but not special enough to remember their name.  Rob also has an excellent arcade-style video game idea and some new (but actually old) ideas for online banking.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #144: Battle Music

Grab your sword and shield, IT'S TIME FOR BATTLE (music).  This isn't boss music mind you, this is battle music.  What does that mean?  Say you're traveling to the next town in an RPG and suddenly you stumble into a random enemy encounter...hit that battle music.  Maybe you're taking a stroll down to the local store to grab a snack when someone tries to jack your Reebok Club Cs...battle music!

LMH Mixtape #143: Matt Furniss

Did someone turn the heat up in here?  Oh, it must be these HOT tunes from composer Matt Furniss!  Alright, I'm done with the furnace puns.  Matt is a very prolific western VGM composer who started his career at only 16-years-old and while this mixtape mostly focuses on his work, included are a couple pieces from game soundtracks he didn't work on but likes a lot.  He actually dropped by the studio for an in-person interview, so if you haven't listened to the full episode yet, be sure to check it out.  Of course this episode is also packed with straight FIRE tracks!...Ok, NOW I'm done.

Rob returns with some tales of heartache, but what better way to mend a broken heart than jamming out to some great VGM tunes with a good friend? In an oddly appropriate topic, the boizz focus on games that exclusively feature female protagonists. But don't worry, these leading ladies won't leave you feeling like Mr. Blue.

LMH Mixtape #141: Manga 2

On Brent's second solo flight we revisit the topic of manga games.  A genre so overflowing with great music, it demanded another focus.  Fun fact: Did you know that the artists who work on mangas are called "Mangaka?”  Is there a term for artists who work on manga game soundtracks?  I don't know, but they make some totally Bonk music!

LMH Mixtape #140: Free Play 14

For the first time, Brent didn't have his co-pilot, Rob F. Switch by his side.  Even though it's a solo flight, the spirit of Rob is still quite present.  This free play has a little something for everybody: energetic Genesis FM Synths, propulsive Konami jams, lovely orchestral melodies with a splash of that classic "video game" sound.

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.

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 Pokémon, 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?
