Episode 05 – Who’s BUGging us now?


January 2014

Episode #05 is epic, and I don’t know any other way to put it! Brent and I strap ourselves to the chairs in the recording studio and pretty much let it roll – show notes be damned!

We cover a lot of ground in this episode and there’s plenty of arcade and pinball content this month to please even the most discerning of collectors.  Brent and I cover what we’ve been up to over the Christmas Holiday and New Years, talk through some current restoration project progress, visit an EPIC pinball game room with private collector Larry Pavey, talk through the latest available arcade reproduction parts, battle Brent being sick, perform an impromptu Battle Zone joystick grommet test and we even have our first ever ‘cross-podcast cameo’ with Charlie and Bug from the Spooky Pinball podcast!

There’s a lot more that I’ve left out, but you’ll have to listen to get it all!  Speaking of that, be sure to swap out your Walkman batteries for a fresh set of Ray-O-Vacs , because this episode weighs in a little over 6 hours (Yep – SIX HOURS…. Brent and I were on a roll).  How’s that for value, eh?  Just leave a quarter on the toilet and don’t forget to wash your hands on the way out!

We had a pretty large ‘outtake’ selection for this month, so be sure to listen to the Spooky cameo and the end of the show – it’s worth it!

Here’s how the episode breaks down:

Updates & What we’ve been working on
Restoration Corner

Discuss new Arcade reproduction projects that debuted this month.  KLOV has some amazing vendors reproducing parts that are essentially unobtainable anywhere else.  Please consider supporting these vendors so that we can continue to get replacement parts for our machines!

Interview with Larry Pavey

Where do we start?  This collection was amazing.  Brent and I were fortunate enough to be introduced to Larry through a mutual friend of the show and Larry was kind enough to have us over to view his private collection.

Take a look at the pictures below and listen to the interview – it was pretty amazing to see so many A-list titles (in such good condition) in one place.

Closing Comments & Announcements

We wrap the show this month with a special cameo appearance by Charlie and Bug from the Spooky Pinball podcast.  It’s great fun and we think you’ll get a good chuckle out of it as well.  Bug must be a big fan of the show, because he nailed me pretty good!
