March 22, 2019 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you this week due to the fact that Mike has been knee-deep in work all week with no sign of it letting up either.  Actually, scratch that, it’s more like he’s hip-deep in work with it possibly coming out of his ying-yang AND his wazoo as well.  Okay, you get the idea by now.  Regardless, our thoughts on Google’s reveal of their Stadia project, along with all the other news coming out of GDC 2019, will have to wait for another week.

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.

March 8, 2019 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you again this week due to continued scheduling conflicts between Mike and Dennis. It’s the damndest thing… as you get older, it seems like there’s only ever more and more demands on your time.  Who knew!  With that being said, they currently have a date tentatively picked out for recording next week, so fingers crossed for that to come to pass!

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you due to scheduling conflicts as Mike had his available time tied up with work this week, while Dennis was pre-occupied with some of his musical endeavors.  The current plan is to get back together and bring you a new episode next week.

February 15, 2019 – Week Off

Hi folks,

As we mentioned at the end of last week’s episode, this is a pre-planned week off for The Arcade for two reasons.  One, our normal recording day falls on Valentine’s Day this year and, as much as we enjoy being with you, we’d be remiss if we didn’t spend that day with our significant others.  And two, this week falls on a long weekend where we live, so we’d like to enjoy it and relax before getting back to the show next week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you this week as Mike found himself bogged down and unexpectedly busy with work all week.  Hopefully, things will clear up and allow him to join Dennis in bringing you a new episode next week.
