Episode 26-8 The Sega Channel
In the 90s Sega fought the rental market with a radical new idea: stream video games directly to consumers. Rob and Pernell listen to music special to the Sega Channel, and the exclusive games brought to North America. The Sega Channel brought video games to consumers directly to their consoles through the cable television network. This was not only a revolution for gaming, it pioneered a whole new way to browse the internet: cable broadband. Enjoy these solid Genesis/Mega Drive tunes from the good-old days of Sega!

Episode 26-7 Video Game Love Story 2
It's nearly Valentine's day! This usually means time for some romantic themed music and games. But Rob and Pernell have different attitudes towards this holiday, making an eclectic playlist that's sure to give you whiplash! Don't worry though, every track you'll hear is golden. Whether it's a smooth jam from Rob, or an aggressive banger from Pernell! One of the themes in this week's episode happens to be all the strange accessories for the Nintendo Game Boy. We're not sure why, but discussions around all the Voltron-esque peripherals just keeps jumping in our brains. Also, watch out for that Jack Nickolas golf track! The sweet saxophone solo is sure to get you in the mood... for golf!

We finally did it. We've made so many references to The Simpsons that we have an entire show devoted to its games! We've got music from the Game Boy all the way to the PlayStation.
