The words ‘Back in the saddle’ has a lot of connotations, but we all know what it means in the land of BT – EPIC show at EPIC normal length!
We roll out of April and into May returning to the studio and catching up on all things arcade and pinball since our livestream shows at the 2016 Louisville Arcade Expo. We sit down and catch up on hobby and project progress over the past six weeks, talk tech, catch up on quite a bit of pinball news and in an unprecedented display of shrewdness, showmanship and podcasting sound effects, Brent spends both his – and Whitney’s – money this month!
We’ll just drop this right here, and let you guys and gals figure the rest of it out….
You see what I did there, right? Saturday Night Live!?!? **moan**.. OK, well in the interest of ‘almost SNL-quality’ entertainment, we bring you our Saturday livestream show from the floor of the 2016 Louisville Arcade Expo!
Join in for the fun as we recap the days’ events and rotate some pretty heavy hitters through the ‘5th chair’ (i.e. “Hey you – yeah you!! Grab that mic and talk to us!!) at our booth during the show. All-in-all, we had an epic night and tons of friends (and family) show up for the show, as well as an “arcade living legend” sit down with us, as well.
- Jeff Waldron and his daughter Paige
- Felicity and Chris Fitzpatrick
- Jackie Roberts, Grace Roberts and Gareth Millwood
- Billy Mitchell
This is the first episode in our coverage of the 2016 Louisville Arcade Expo! We are super-excited to bring you all the audio and video coverage of the expo seminars, as well as our live-stream shows – recorded direct from the show floor – from both Friday and Saturday night.
Aside from the normal banter, background noise and endless pontification that you’ve come to expect, we feature several guests from Friday night and had a great time talking with them:
We’ll update the links below as the other shows go live, but here’s what you can expect from our total coverage:
- Steve Ritchie - slide/show seminar and Q&A session
- Joel West – on playing Berzerk and open Q&A
- Billy Mitchell & Walter Day – seminar on playing the perfect Pac-Man game; open Q&A
- Billy Mitchell, Joel West & Brian Kuh – open Q&A seminar
- Friday night livestream show
- Saturday night livestream show
Join in on the fun and relive the action of the expo as we bring you as much from the show floor as we can squeeze into a modest-sized (for us…LOL) MP3 file.

This episode is all about shaking off the cold of winter and getting into the swing of the restoration and expo season. With the upcoming Louisville Arcade Expo and the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo just a few short weeks (LAX) and months (SFGE) out, we are looking forward to plenty of live broadcasts, panels and getting to meet up with both old and new friends. Between the pomp and circumstance related to preparation for those shows, episode #38 busts onto the scene!
It’s always an eye opener when we sit down and cover off one what we’ve been working on over the past month… you think you might not be getting a lot accomplished, but in effect, there’s quite a good bit done:
Brent works on the Zaxxon, a Cue Ball Wizard, and a Golden Tee ‘99. Whitney (finally) works on the Zookeeper and begins a ‘bench rig’ build-out project that will be detailed here on the site and on Facebook as well. Between all of that, we both go on two independent ‘mini-raids’ and score some nice loot that we reveal to each other for the first time here on the show.
This month we return with a ‘Deep Dive’ segment on the Gottlieb/Premier System 3 pinball boards and talk about MPU repair for those specific games.
We also spend a boatload of Brent’s money, respond to a TON of listener feedback and ponder our next ‘out of band’ movie review. Lots of good feedback on the Star Wars discussion, so we’re toying with the idea of doing it again. What movie should we pick apart next?
