LMH Mixtape #3: Experimental Music

Brent and Rob proved their commitment to making the Legacy Music Hour more than a garden-variety greatest hits list by showcasing some exceptionally bizarre and fascinating tracks for their third episode. This installment convinced many users early on that they were in for something special, and perhaps marked the beginning of Rob F.'s fascination with the TurboGrafx-16.

Coming Soon: The LMH Mixtapes!

Legacy Music Hour user, KeyGlyph, has been kind enough to take on the duties of making the Legacy Music Hour Mixtapes.  She will be editing together music-only versions of every LMH episode (with a little bit of Brent/Rob banter at the top), posting them on the official LMH site, and including her own commentary and other notes.  Mixtape episodes will start appearing soon, so stay tuned.  And let's all give a big thank you KeyGlyph for taking on this arduous task!
