Episode 200: Episode 200! (Live)

Brent and Rob celebrate the 200th episode of The Legacy Music Hour with a live recording in Los Angeles.  Lots of fun and laughs and hijinks take place during this momentous occasion with a handful of guest commentators, a healthy amount of audience participation, a few in-person video game music related performances, and even some actual video game playing.  Bad boizz, birth-talk, and baseball -this episode is jammed packed with action and good video game music from the third and fourth generation.  Thank you to all who have supported the podcast over the last seven and a half years.  Note: Just like Episode 100 and 150, the photo is missing some people, because it wasn’t taken immediately after the show was over and they had already left.  Full track listing below.
