ep10: "GamePro Radio 1994"

WHAT'S UP GAMERS

We've unearthed a totally tubular time capsule, and inside was a lost episode of a (totally not made-up) radio show from the now-defunct video game magazine GamePro. It's got all the totally awesome video game soundtracks of its era, plus a bunch of the hottest tunes from the rest of the music world, for all you cool kids out there. Let's get our heads banging! Radical, dude!

what's up dudes and dudettes
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:04:35 AM
just out here u know
Tis (host) 3:05:05 AM
still deciding if I need to chat in-character
Tis (host) 3:05:16 AM
let's say no, in which case
Tis (host) 3:05:21 AM
yes, we out here :)
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:07:59 AM
I still never watched the street fighter movie
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:08:24 AM
Seems like something that'd be fun to watch in a group but I have no group to watch movies with. (He works the night shift, non normal human activities)
Tis (host) 3:08:51 AM
I've never seen it either!
Tis (host) 3:09:07 AM
Would love to, though I usually am not a graveyard shift human, alas
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:18:24 AM
I so forgot that power rangers had video games lol one of my cousins and I would play one of the PlayStation games a lot. All I remember was that we kept calling one miniboss the "garbage man" and Loki was a boss but we kept calling him loco loki
Tis (host) 3:18:51 AM
I mean that sounds like the perfect level at which to enjoy the MMPR :)
Tis (host) 3:19:14 AM
My sister had their game gear game, which was a delightfully mediocre 1-on-1 fighter
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:21:15 AM
I think it was the game based on the series where theybwere cops? Or their helmets had lights I forgor
Tis (host) 3:27:07 AM
Ohhhh yeahhhh! It was like a paw patrol set up, right? THey were all different first responder types?
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:28:21 AM
I think so yeah
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:35:47 AM
Tempted to apply to the station to air a Gaming in the Clinton Years themed show where I play music from the games George Wood reviewed and air his reviews during mic breaks
Tis (host) 3:37:27 AM
Oh wow, it sounds like I have some spicy new memes to learn about -- I have never heard of this man
Tis (host) 3:37:46 AM
Needless to say, I encourage your plan wholeheartedly
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:40:29 AM
Please watch that series it's so funny and mind boggling especially considering that it was on public access TV
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:40:45 AM
The Donkey Kong and Toy Story reviews are on frequent repeat for me
Tis (host) 3:41:20 AM
:D
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:42:33 AM
Only then will you know the raw power of Silicon Graphics Computing™
David Shortell 3:44:33 AM
What's all this malarkey about Arcade's "revenge", seeking to make "has-beens" out of people (as opposed to just murdering them)? The dude bore no personal grudges! He was just a ridiculously expensive contract killer, in it for the money (and sadistic fun)!
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:45:42 AM
Ayeeee mornin David!
Tis (host) 3:46:14 AM
G'morning, Marvel scholar :)
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:50:27 AM
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOBAW
Tis (host) 3:51:00 AM
Momentous year for the Madden franchise, first time they licensed both the players AND the teams
Tis (host) 3:51:18 AM
No more fake athlete names
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:57:06 AM
That means no more New York "Giants" :(
Tis (host) 3:58:21 AM
Oh wait, I just learned this one -- that is a dig at their current performance?
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:58:41 AM
<:^)
Tis (host) 3:59:41 AM
Sorry for your loss(es)
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 3:59:58 AM
fly eagles fly
Tis (host) 4:00:09 AM
Oh, I gather that is a very different story
Tis (host) 4:02:43 AM
The only team I really follow is the Pats, hoping that they'll lose
Tis (host) 4:02:49 AM
It's been a great year
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 4:04:11 AM
Every year without Brady is a great year for Belichick >:)
Tis (host) 4:05:51 AM
I was reading an article about McDaniels getting fired, and hearing about all the stuff he brought over from the Pats, thinking that it would work
Tis (host) 4:06:07 AM
And it is all the dumbest, meanest, grind-you-down kind of office culture
Tis (host) 4:06:40 AM
Having seen that, I now find it pretty easy to understand why the Patriot Way did not outlast Brady's stay there
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 4:09:41 AM
Do you have a link to that article? It's my lunch break now, could go for some reading with this music

TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 4:11:38 AM
I love how I poisoned the discussion away from video games to sports
Tis (host) 4:15:27 AM
It's 1994, you can't escape the NFL
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 4:17:07 AM
this track ruled btw
Tis (host) 4:19:20 AM
OG Killer Instinct was incredible, soundtrack-wise
Tis (host) 4:19:49 AM
One of the first video game soundtrack albums that got a US release that I know of
Tis (host) 4:47:10 AM
DRUMS! LOVE DRUMS!
TAndy: Monthly Doner 🥙 4:49:57 AM
sick show like always, big thanks!
Tis (host) 4:52:12 AM
Totally my pleasure -- thank you so much for listening!
