LMH Mixtape #46: Role-Playing Games

The Legacy Music Hour used their first RPG focus to dig up some lesser-known music in the genre, to discuss cart blowing, and to congratulate their listeners in greeting-card format.  After enjoying this mixtape's isolated tunes, be sure to check out user Zeke Sharp's recreation of said LMH greeting card to congratulate yourself on whatever awesome stuff you've been up to lately.

Episode 179: Technical Difficulties

Lots of technical difficulties on Episode 179, and a variety of them at that.  Rob constantly gets disconnected, there’s a power surge, audio delays, Rob’s microphone cord breaks, Brent says “um” way more than usual.  Just one tech issue after the next.  So please bear with this episode and the awkward moments these issues create.  On the bright side, however, Brent and Rob are joined by Dan Avidan, from the band Ninja Sex Party and one of hosts of the video game playthrough series, Game Grumps.  Rob also shares a dramatic story about an interaction he had with a user named Ted.  NOTE: Brent’s Museum of Tolerance joke was basically derived from an Arj Barker joke, just to make sure credit is properly given here.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #45: Western Composers

Just four episodes after their Japan focus, Brent and Rob decided to highlight the distinctive style of western composers.  With giants like L. Rob Hubbard, Joe McAlby, the Wise One, the Follin Brothers, and the Burnin' Furniss, you can't go wrong.  Get ready to rock out -- and sometimes fly away -- with this awesome mix.

Episode 178: Free Play 30

Soccer and other stuff -that's the unofficial theme of Episode 178.  Rob decides to present only soccer/football related tracks while Brent keeps the options more varied.  Should LMH start naming the episodes based on what the boys talk about, rather than just naming it "Free Play", since they're all pretty much free plays these days?  Voice your opinion in the comments section.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #44: Funny Music

Episode 44 featured tracks that were funny, intentionally or otherwise.  Weird vocals, flatulence, dinosaurs, frogs, burps, and inappropriately Baroque compositions abound in this very strange mix!
