A quality mix of VGM tracks.  The full episode is also a ”must listen" if you haven't heard it.  You get 8-bit drum rolls, surgeries, and phone calls from Santa Claus.  Has Santa left Palmdale yet, or is he still chasing kids with a camera?  Last but not least, for the holiday season, you also get the gift of the VGM Karaoke Showcase!
