Episode 113: New Age Music 2

New Age music to bring in the New Year.  This is Brent and Rob's second time focusing on the New Age genre within video game music of the 8-bit and 16-bit era.  Sometimes more melodic, sometimes more ambient, the music in this episode is relaxing and also contemplative.  The boys also talk about hats.  Full track listing below.

Episode 110: Free Play 11

It's another free play situation on The Legacy Music Hour!  NOTE: If you want to participate in the "poll" situation, just email legacymusichour@gmail.com with "Episode 110 Poll" in the subject line and list, not in any particular order, your THREE top tracks, contrary to what Brent and Rob say on the recording (they say to only list one track, but they later figured they could tally up the listeners' top three tracks as long as they're not ranked.  That is, you can rank them if you want, but it won't have any bearing on the results.)  Also, don't forget to consider the closing track played.  NOTE 2: In the photo, they're trying to do a wave.  Full track listing below.
