We are “back to basics” this month and are proud to turn the spotlight on the local collecting scene and allow Louisville-local collectors a chance at the mic to tell their story and talk about their perspectives on the current state of the arcade and pinball hobby. Truthfully – we don’t get to do this enough.
Whitney was out of town for work, so this seemed like the perfect chance to upgrade this month’s show!
To keep the ‘regular’ pace for the episode, Brent chats for a bit about his updates post Louisville Arcade Expo and discusses some initial perspectives on Stern’s new Iron Maiden pin as well.
Let us know what you think – would love some feedback on the format of this episode!
Happy Friday the 13th! PLEASE don’t break your finger hitting the rewind button on your Walkman ™!
It’s the last of our Louisville Arcade Expo 2018 shows, and for this very special (and favorite) of days, we figured it only fitting to grace your ears with a never-ending montage of prior-episode outtakes featuring Whitney laughing, Brent lamenting and beep tone after beep tone after beep tone.
The ONLY redeeming quality is the uber-cool soundtrack for the show.
It’s no April Fools, yo! Instead, it’s our Saturday night livestream show (3/3/2018) direct from the floor of the 2018 Louisville Arcade Expo!
Join in as we discuss everything from arcade, to pinball to Star Wars to Vlassic pickles… it all fits in somewhere along the line and one way or another – it works.
We have a slew of folks who sit in with us for the show, including:
- Grace and Gareth (the family tradition continues)
- Adam Curry from The Pinball Workshop
- J Patrick from Pod Casserole
- David Corrigan from The Grand Ole’ Gameroom Expo
- Jeremy, Matt & Joe from the Louisville Arcade Expo
- Chris Cruz from Griffin Aerotech, makers of SkyCurser
- Corey Sims @ RecBar
- Jeff Waldon & his daughter Paige
- And last, but in no way least, friend of the show Shawn O’Shea
Join us for our Friday night (3/2/2018) live stream show from the floor of the Louisville Arcade Expo!
Friend of the show Shawn O’ Shea takes up the co-hosting duties for Whitney (he had a family commitment) and hangs on the microphones with Brent while we pull a few folks from the show floor – including our special guest – Mr. Steve Bowden from FunWithBonus.com!
We really ratchet up our cred on this show and lay down 2.5 hours of ‘qualified’ pinball talk this time around – thus making this episode “Jim Hale approved”!
Join in the fun pinball talk and take in the sounds from the expo floor, Louisville-style!
I’ll just park that show title right here, and you can thank Brent for that one! Even though February is always a hectic month for us (getting ready for the Louisville Arcade Expo) and such, we didn’t skimp on the free entertainment this month and managed to cram out 3 hours of shop talk on vector HV cages (hence the show title), a DIY Z80 pod for your Fluke 9010 tester, the absolute best IC puller known to man and a multi-Scramble kit that had Brent spending his own money faster than Whitney can – and that’s some trick. We also give the Pins their due and pay some respect to the fantastic PAPA tutorials and the good work done by Bowen Kerins and his team.
Also, we’d like to give a special shout-out to Scott Danesi (www.scottdanesi.com) as he has graciously allowed us to use his MOST EXCELLENT music as the new official soundtrack for the podcast. Yep – we are now officially almost as cool as Total Nuclear Annihilation.
