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.

An episode to close out the year with a 2018 wrap-up and a chat about the future consoles from Sony and Microsoft that loom over the horizon. Will video games ditch physical media? It has already happened with music which has contributed to the vinyl resurgence proving many still want the physical media to listen to. Will the PlayStation 5, like XBOX One is doing now, be backwards compatible? 

Next episode in a week will be our top 10 individual favorite albums of 2018 and will also still include Side A gaming content.
