Episode 187: Rob's World

Rob finally returns and has a LOT to share about what’s being going on in his life, in this somewhat manly themed episode of the Legacy Music Hour.  Plus, a new segment: Prizes From Gabe.  Legacy Music Hour sound engineer Gabe Castro is kind enough to give Brent and Rob some neat prizes.  Also, another new segment: VGM Karaoke Face-Off.  Two different people sing along different lyrics to the same video game music track, and everyone decides who did a better job.  It’s a pretty action packed episode, not to mention the great music.  NOTE: The farting noise in this episode is a sound the equipment was making -not one of the boizz cutting loose.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #55: Fire and Lava

Lava levels have been a staple in video games since the early days, so of course the Legacy Music Hour needed a fire and lava focus of their very own. Now get toasty with Brent and Rob F. the Switch's picks all over again, this time in mixtape form, as you carefully platform your way through some of the best video game tunes to feature words like "blaze," "burning," and "inferno" in their titles.

LMH Mixtape #54: Elevator Music 2

For over fifty episodes the Legacy Music Hour churned out unique, non-repeating themes... and then came Elevator Music 2!  This musical flavor is so quirky, interesting, and good that the boizz decided to revisit it before any others.  So get ready to drift away like you're on hold, in a waiting room, or riding to the top floor with this group of jams that are most certainly worth a hundred man dollars.
