Live Recording: Episode 150

To honor the 150th episode of The Legacy Music Hour, Brent and Rob are inviting the listeners and anyone else interested to sit in on the recording.  This is just like a normal free play episode where Brent and Rob pick some tracks and comment on them, except there will be some extra microphones so that anyone who attends can chime in and comment as well.  Previous LMH guests will also make appearances.  So think of this as a sort of listening party or like a regular episode but with a lot more guests than usual.

The recording will take place at 7pm sharp on Thursday, September 5, 2013 at the Zephyr Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.  It'll take about two hours to record.  If you live in the area, feel free to come and bring who ever you like, as long as they won't be bored by people listening and talking about video game music.
