The Legacy Music Hour podcast was created by Brent Weinbach and Rob F. for the purpose of sharing and talking about video game music from specifically the 8-bit and 16-bit eras. No remixes, no covers, no video game inspired music -just pure, original music from the NES, SNES, Genesis, and more.
Episode 235: The Saga Of DJ Baby T-Rex
Emily joins Brent, Rob, and Gabe on this episode and they happen to record on April 1, so a good bit of April fooling takes place. Rob creates a new character named DJ Baby T-Rex, a radio disc jockey who had a thriving on-air career but eventually moves on to other things. It’s kind of a saga actually. A legendary saga. And Brent beatboxes at one point, by the way. Full track listing

Episode 233: Missing Signals
Rob and Brent usually establish a physical signal for each episode when recording so that Brent knows when Rob is good to move on from a track, but for some reason, Brent wasn’t seeing Rob’s signals during this episode. Regardless, there’s some great track here. At the end, they boizz share a phone message from Shinobi MC, a sort of spoken word-type piece, so stay tuned for that. Full track
LMH Mixtape #123: Role-Playing Games 2 (Part 1)
One of the best things about revisiting these mixtapes is rediscovering tracks you'd somehow forgotten about, and for some reason this first half of the RPGs-part-two two-parter became a huge blindspot in KeyGlyph's memory. Now that her hindsight prescription has been readjusted to 20/20, she can't stop rocking out to some of these jams... and as soon as you hit play, the same will go for you!
Grew up gaming in the 80s and 90s.
I totally can appreciate all their video game talk. From consoles to musical tracks and composers. This is my ballpark.
Here’s the crazy part...I was also a cult poundhouse follower. Loved that show.
Huge fan all around.
These dudes are super funny and they find really rare and obscure old video game music. Great tastes!
The BEST video game music podcast out there
I listen to pretty much every video game music podcast, and LMH is by far my favorite!
Brent and Rob have been going strong for TEN years (they did take a one year hiatus).
First off, they're both hilarious and know how to keep the show interesting.
Second, no other podcast is doing what they're doing- tracking down amazing 8-bit and 16-bit music from the 80s and 90s. You're not going to hear the Mario and Zelda songs you already know- these guys do insane amounts of research to find hidden gems from the video game world.
No joke, my music collection is now filled with hundreds of tracks they introduced me to. If you're into game music, this podcast should be your starting point!
