Welcome! Stay a while and listen – to some of the best video game music you’ll hear this side of the internet. Mike & Justin have a whole host of episodes lined up where we want to take you for a ride throughout the vast world of VGM – from beeps and boops of the 70’s & 80’s right up through the fully orchestrated soundtracks of some of today’s best games.
Each episode will consist of at least 10 tracks (plus an intro) chosen by your hosts (and any guests), a commercial, themed around the topic of the episode, as well as some discussion centered around the tracks that you will hear. We want to be the best possible vgm-based radio show we can be, so always feel free to let us know what you liked, what fell flat, and what we can do to make the show even better.
Stay tuned – our 1st episode will release on June 13th (06/13/18).
