The Legacy Music Hour: Konami 2

Brent and Rob take another look at the legendary company Konami, originally focused on in Episode 23, but this time digging much deeper in to the Konami library and discovering their more obscure titles such as Mouryou Senki Madara, Wai Wai World, and Gradius.  Just kidding on that last one.  Great, great music in this episode.  Konami is one of the best companies to explore when it comes to video game music.  Find out why on Episode 88 of the Legacy Music Hour.  Full track listing below.
