Nov. 18, 2020 – No Show This Week

Hey all,

This is a note just letting y’all know that there will not be a new episode of The Arcade for your listening pleasure this week.  Don’t worry, there’s nothing nefarious or concerning going on.  It’s just a simple matter of Dennis being pre-occupied with some home repair work and not being free to record.  So, if he manages to survive, then we should have a new episode released sometime next week.  Join us then!

In the meantime, we encourage you to get your fill of our smooth sounds by checking out the many past episodes available for download on both our iTunes and Google Play pages.

October 30, 2020 – Halloween Music Special

Hello, world. Given the roller-coaster ride everyone and everything has been on the last several months, at least we have a small bit of normalcy return with our annual Halloween Music Special! As always, we strive to present a selection of seasonally appropriate ditties that you’ve never heard before. Sorry, friends, but you won’t be hearing the Monster Mash, Thriller, or the Ghostbusters theme here. We start this year’s show with a group of songs themed around the idea of “Halloween in the Old West”, which brings us songs from Sir Christopher Lee, country singer Buck Owens, and the game Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare. After the Old West, we take a trip back in time with a handful of selections from when the music industry was an actual industry and cranked out Halloween novelty songs like clockwork. Returning for another appearance is the Obligatory Metal Group, which this year is themed around cannibals and features choice cuts from Cannibal Corpse, Heaven & Hell, and a pre-Type O Negative song from Peter Steele. Rounding out this year’s program is a group of songs that honors the many appearances of the world’s foremost bio-exorcist, Beetlejuice! We’ll be honoring the character with some selections from the Beetlejuice soundtrack, the animated series, some of his video game appearances, as well as from the recent big-budget Broadway musical. So sit back, relax, and enjoy some haunting sounds during these spooky times.

October 23, 2020 – No Show This Week

Hey all,

So, we had plans and designs for doing a new show this week.  Unfortunately, Dennis was taken out of commission with a migraine for several days this week and thus was unable to record as a result.  Hopefully, the rest will do him some good and we can return with our annual Halloween show next week.

October 9, 2020 – Away This Week

Hey friends,

Just wanted to give you all a friendly reminder that The Arcade is off this week so that Mike and Dennis can enjoy the Thanksgiving long weekend that’s happening here in Canada.  Don’t worry, we’re aiming to be back with a brand-new show for your listening pleasure next week, on Friday, October 16th.

October 2, 2020 – No Show This Week

Hey friends,

Just giving you a heads-up that there is not a new episode of The Arcade this week as the recording schedule for Mike and Dennis went a little wonky this week, and thus did now allow for a show to be recorded.  Normally, this would be the part when you’d be advised to come back for a new episode next week.  BUT, next week is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, so The Arcade will be off in observance of that.  So, the current plan is to return with a new episode for you in two weeks, on Friday, October 16th
