Podcast — Macross Music in the 2000s

The third in the series of in-depth explorations into the changing world of Macross music throughout the decades, featuring MW members VF5SS and Gubaba has been put online over at Collection DX.  This time our intrepid casters discuss the highs and lows of the Space Age 2000s.  Also, I should mention that “Pink Lady & Jeff” and “Laverne & Shirley” are referenced.
