A Band of Gamers
Gamers who love music. Stay current with video games and discover new music with one podcast. Two hobbies in separate segments by aging best mates who love keeping up with the latest trends and platforms, playing new games alongside their retro favorites and recommending great records.

For the first time in the history of ABOG, all three co-hosts record an episode together in the same room. Includes a quick recap of Midwest Gaming Classic 2019, details about the upcoming PlayStation next generation console, thoughts on XBOX One S All-Digital Edition price, Gris, Tetris 99 and EGX Rezzed 2019 highlights.

Tell your spouse you can't move to a cabin in the woods if the internet is crap otherwise kiss that modern gaming good bye. It's get off my lawn time again with your pals in ABOG as they lament the streaming future and consider going backwards rather than embracing the future. They also share initial impressions of MLB The Show 19, recommend a must-own record for fans of hip hop interested in learning the roots and talk about an obnoxious guitar solo that under normal circumstances may have ruined the gig.
