  1. Glad the games came in one piece. I will try my very best to get you something off your list of games Brent

  2. Is that a Tom Rhodes album in front of the TV? One of my absolute favorite comics.

  4. Hey! Awesome. I listen to that podcast too. I saw Tom Rhodes at the Improve about a month before I left Los Angeles to move to the UK. Great show.

    Good episode too. Really dug that Streets of Rage 2 track, really acid house.

  5. Does anyone read these comments 5 months later? The tempo, dance feel and ESPECIALLY the bassline from the Streets of Rage 3 track is straight out of "Soon" by My Bloody Valentine -- and 3 years later...

    1. Yes, the Legacy Music Hour does read them! (And so do some other listeners who are catching up.)

    2. Spencer, I just read this b/c I just posted THE SAME THING on the newest episode. I had the exact same thought. all those Streets of Rage tracks--or at least "The Poets I" "The Poets II" and "Moon"too a little sound like MBV to me. Great minds...
