    Interview with Jeff from Marshall Art

    Interview with Jeff from Marshall Art

    I recently had a great chat with Jeff Roberts - A chiptunes musician who also works on official video game soundtrack releases.  It was awesome hearing Jeff's perspective on what it takes to get a proper, accurate rip of a classic video game soundtrack, as well as the passion both he and some stores put into getting it out to fans.  If you're a fan of video game music, music in general or just plan ole' nerdiness, definitely give this one a listen - As always, these long-form podcasts are also available are also available as a video, check the main page for links:  https://www.retrorgb.com/interview-with-jeff-from-marshall-art.html
