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!

March 1, 2019 – No Show This Week

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

February 1, 2019 – No Show This 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.

December 14, 2018 – No Show This Week… Again

Hi folks,

The best way to describe this week would be to borrow a line from Leonard Snart/Captain Cold on an episode of The Flash when he said, “Make the plan.  Execute the plan.  Expect the plan to go off the rails.  Throw away the plan.”

You see, the sore throat that sidelined Mike for the last two weeks had at last subsided, and he could finally talk for long periods without discomfort.  Mike and Dennis lined up their respective schedules and managed to pick a date and time for when they could get together and record a show.  The news items were all selected and everything was pointing in a positive direction.  Unfortunately, however, what couldn’t be planned for was Dennis getting sick, which is exactly what happened this week.

For some reason, the fates decided to bless Dennis with one of those bad cold/borderline cases of flu that come and kick your butt for a few days.  Thankfully, the worst of it has now passed for him and he’s on the road to getting well, but was still in no condition to record a show.

We apologize for the lack new shows over the last several weeks.

December 7, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, we still do not have a new show for you.  The culprit this week was the devastating one-two punch of scheduling conflicts and less than 100% health.  Last week, Mike was suffering from a sore throat, which was the main factor in not doing a show.  Alas, with a week’s time, Mike’s poor pharynx proves positively problematic and is still not yet up to enough snuff to survive the rigors of recording.  Ideally, if his current pace of recovery continues without issue, then he *should* (fingers crossed) be well enough for a show next week.  If anything changes on that front, watch this space.

November 30, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hi folks,

Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you this week as both Mike and Dennis have been under the weather for the past few days.  Mike, in specific, has been struck with a sore throat which makes it unpleasant to talk, and also makes him sound like he’s going through puberty for a second time.  Hopefully, with this week off, both will be back up and close to 100% to deliver a new show for you next week.

November 2, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hey friends,

Alas… much like two weeks ago, the plan *was* to record a new show for you.  And much like two weeks ago, it was all assembled, and ready to be recorded.  However, *unlike* two weeks ago when Mike was traveling and didn’t get his suitcase until much later, he actually received his suitcase right when he landed this time.  The problem came when connecting all his gear to set-up for a remote recording session.  Apparently, some thing or some setting must have changed in the many months since the last remote recording session because when going back to it this time, the recording hardware and software refused to play nice with one another.  Despite all best efforts being made, it became clear that there was a bigger technical issue at hand that could not be solved in just one night.  Thus, no recording could take place.

Fear not, citizens, for next week will be a better week when both Mike and Dennis will be in the same physical location at the same physical time, reducing the number of things that could go wrong.  Until then, we apologize for not being with you this week.

October 19, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hey friends,

So… the plan *was* to record a new show for you this week.  It was all assembled, fine-tuned, sent to the necessary parties, and just waiting to be recorded.  BUT, a funny thing happened on the way to recording that show.  You see, Mike was traveling for work on the recording day, and brought the equipment with him to record a show remotely.  And, while Mike managed to get to his destination, his suitcase ultimately did not.  In that suitcase?  Yep, his recording equipment.  Needless to say, it’s a little difficult to record a show when you have nothing to record it with.

Unfortunately, our best-laid plans were blown to smithereens this week.  But, do not fret, for we will be back with a brand-new show for you next week.  Best of all, next week’s show will be our annual Halloween Music Special!  We hope you’ll join us for what is one of the most fun shows we do each year.

August 31, 2018 – No Show This Week

Hey friends,

Just wanted to give you all a friendly reminder that we’re off this week so that Dennis and I can enjoy the last throes of summer during the Labor Day long weekend.  Don’t worry, we’ll be back with a brand-new show for your listening pleasure next week on Friday, September 7th.
