February 20, 2021 – No Show This Week

Hey party peoples,

Sorry to say, but there isn’t a new episode for you to enjoy.  The respective schedules of Mike and Dennis didn’t allow for a recording session to happen this week.  But, barring anything unforeseen, there should be a new episode ready for you next 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.

Greetings friends, and welcome to the future that is 2021!  Hopefully, all of you out there managed to survive the past 12 months, while we here at The Arcade are glad to be getting back into the swing of things after our holiday break.  This week, we’ll take a look back at some of the bigger stories that played out last year for part one of our 2020 Year In Review.

December 19, 2020 – 14th Annual Christmas Music Special

Welcome one and welcome all to our 14th annual Christmas Music Special! Holiday traditions might be looking a bit different this year, but this is one that forges ahead.

As always, we here at The Arcade endeavor to bring you some Christmas music selections that you’ve probably never heard before, and this year is no different. We start this show with not one, not two, but three unique twists on the old Chipmunk song, Christmas Don’t Be Late. After that, we share a selection of songs that attempt to accurately capture the Christmas mood as it exists in 2020, this the year of the endless dumpster fire. That is to say, it’s Christmas music for when you’re just not feeling Christmas this year! If that brings you down a bit, don’t worry, because we’ll try and lift your spirits with some songs from across the pond in the UK. To close out this year’s show, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of a truly timeless Christmas movie, Home Alone. We’ll share a selection of songs composed by John Williams from some of the movie’s most memorable moments.

As always, we encourage you to follow the links below to add these songs to your collection. We hope you enjoy this show, and we wish all of you out there a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
