Episode 190: Jokes

Brent and Rob record Episode 190 at the Hollywood Improv comedy club, the very place where they decided to start doing the podcast in the first place, seven years ago.  And since they’re at a comedy club, they try out some new video game related stand-up material.  It becomes a somewhat feminine episode as well.  Also, the boys open up some packages and ultimately find theirselves in a room of treasure.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #58: Military and War

Who knew a military episode could be so jazzy?  That was the question of the week during the Legacy Music Hour's war-themed focus.  Now you can ponder this question again as you travel through history and tour its conflicts: the fictional, the factual, the raw, the romanticized.

Episode 189: Keeping Things Up

It’s been a while since Brent and Rob have recorded an episode in different cities.  Rob actually stays awake the entire time!  The music keeps things moving.  And everyone stays positive.  That’s the theme of the show: Keeping Things Up (awake, in motion, and positive).  So let this episode be a positive influence on you when you listen to it, or may it help you stay awake, or help you keep going, or all the above.  And most of all, enjoy the music.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #57: TurboGrafx-16

The Legacy Music Hour's first console focus was on the deliciously crunchy TurboGrafx-16.  Although the system did very well in Japan as the PC Engine, its limited popularity in North America and Europe may have left you relatively underexposed to its fantastic sound.  Starting to feel the TurboGrafx deficiency in your blood? Hook this mixtape directly into your veins and watch your vitals soar along with these fantastic jams.
