November 8, 2019 – Away This Week

Hey friends,

As mentioned at the tail end of last week’s episode, the show will be away this week as we were going to use what would normally be our recording time to go see Terminator: Dark Fate instead!  Or at least, that’s was the plan…  Unfortunately, Dennis fell under the weather on the day of our movie plans and couldn’t make it.  It looks like fate would’ve had us away, either way, this week.  Hopefully, with this time off, Dennis can heal up and return to form on our next all-new episode, which is currently planned for release on Friday, November 15th.

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 25, 2019 – Halloween Music Special

Halloween season is back up upon again, which means it’s time for us here at The Arcade to rescue you from the never-ending barrage of Thriller, the Monster Mash, and the Ghostbusters theme. You see, every year at this time, we make it our mission to seek out and bring you Halloween music you won’t hear anywhere else and, by gawd, we’ve outdone ourselves this year. Leading off this year’s proceedings is one of the most recognizable voices in all things spooky, Vincent Price. From there, we share a version of the Monster Mash that combines the well-known song with 1980’s hip-hop, a ditty from the cult classic movie Phantom of the Paradise, and a pair of songs from Bob’s Burgers and South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut. After our opening pack of Ludicrous Leadoffs, we move on and give attention and praise to a character that doesn’t get much love this time of year, the Devil. We give our regards to the Dark Lord with a pack of songs ranging from Robert Johnson all the way to a track from Cuphead. After saying “hi” to Satan, it’s only appropriate that present the Obligatory Metal Group, which, as you can tell by the name, is something we do every year. Serenading you with metal tones this year is Mercyful Fate, Dissolution, and one of the most Halloween appropriate bands of all-time, KISS. Wrapping up our Halloween show for 2019 is Christopher Lee performing a reading of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic, The Tell-Tale Heart. It’s only appropriate to bookend the show with Vincent Price and Christopher Lee, two of the best voices for Halloween, ever.

October 4, 2019 – Away This Week

Hey friends,

In case you’ve missed our many mentions of this, Dennis was away on a trip out of town this week, and thus, there’s no episode of The Arcade for you.  However, he should be returning shortly and the plan right now is to return with a brand-new episode for your listening pleasure next week, on Friday, October 11th.

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.

September 27, 2019 – Away This Week

Hey friends,

As mentioned at the tail end of last week’s episode, the show will be away this week as we’re using what would normally be our recording time to go see Rambo: Last Blood instead!  Since we’re both longtime fans of the Rambo franchise and all its cockamamie naming scheme glory, it’s pretty much a given that we have to see Last Blood.

Normally, this is the time where it’s mentioned that the show will be back next week, but that’s not the case today!  Dennis will be on a trip out of town next week, so the plan right now is to return with a brand-new episode for all of you on Friday, October 11th.
