Brent and Rob say goodbye on this final, special episode of The Legacy Music Hour.  Much less focused on the music, the boyz recall fun and funny moments from the past, talk about the reasons why the podcast is ending, and are visited by several special guests!  Thank you to all the users for their support and donations over the last three years!  Thank you to all the amazing 8-bit and 16-bit era video game music composers featured on LMH!  And don't worry, it's not over, look for LMH related stuff in the future!  Partial track listing below.

Episode 156: Best Of Year In Review 3

Once again, Brent and Rob countdown their TOP TEN favorite video game music tracks of the year (Episodes 105 through 155).  This episode marks the completion of three whole years of The Legacy Music Hour.  The tracks selected could only be music they became aware of within the last 51 episodes (and that were played on the podcast).  Lots of "kills it" moments.  NOTE: If it's unclear, Brent and Rob are bowing in the photo.  Also, the cartridge right above the Narc shirt, which is hard to see, is the Famicom game, Akumajou Special: Boku Dracula-kun.  Partial track listing below.

Live Event: MAME THAT CHUNE on 10/24/13

The Legacy Music Hour presents MAME THAT CHUNE, a video game music game show with Brent Weinbach and Rob F.!  MAME THAT CHUNE is "Name That Tune" for video game music of the 8-bit and 16-bit era.  Audience members will have an opportunity to enter a drawing to compete.

Also included are two side contests, which audience members can enter as well: VGM Karaoke, where contestants sing along to a video game track of their choice with either prepared written lyrics, lyrics you make up on the spot, or humming along gibberish. Audience will vote by applause on the winner, based on overall performance and ability to sing along with the melody of the piece.  And finally, there's Legacy Dance: Battle Mode, which is a video game music dance battle.

The music showcased will ONLY be video game music from the 8-bit and 16-bit era.  No remixes, no covers, no adaptations of non-video game music -just pure music from the Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and Sega Genesis!

PLUS, opening the evening is The Spencer Owen Timeshare, playing covers of video game music featured on the Legacy Music Hour, and original tunes as well!!
