Drchekov ,

Brings back some great memories

A really good mix of tracks from different genres.

MetzGaming ,

Outstanding video game music!

Paul has a tremendous knowledge and great taste in video game music, whether it's your classic Mario style bouncy themes, to your Japanese hard rock riffs.

It's familiar and new at the same time. If you appreciate Video Game music history, this is a great podcast to subscribe to.
