A Band of Gamers
Stay current with gaming and discover new music. Gaming podcast with a flip side (Side A Video Games and Side B Music). Over-the-hill best mates geek out about video games and recommend records.

Amazing how talking about some cardboard can help even three old dudes remember they used to be kids. Nintendo might be onto something. Join Joel, Shane and Karl for another episode of weather reports, gaming and music. Perhaps they'll even teach you how to fold yourself a record player by the end of this one. Pour yourself a strawberry beer and plug in some headphones, it's ABOG time children.
