The Legacy Music Hour: Asiatic Music 2

Asiatic sounding video game music tracks are all the rage of Episode 137 (also see Episode 74).  Good music here, with lots of pentatonic action.  Brent and Rob try to crack the mystery of “Kenny’s Song.”  Also, Brent’s new friend makes a return visit, and Rob and Brent get a workout.  Full track listing below.
