spp79As we prep for pinball Expo, Bug and Charlie talk about a bunch of stuff. Fortunately loyal pinball listener, it’s all pinball related. Really this one is kind of the “show about nothing”… but something! What does that mean? Only one way to find out. You’ll get all the usual goodies like the E.M. Dungeon, a cool Rob Zombie knocker kit to a lucky listener from Pinball Life, and the gadget of the month… plus, Bug & Charlie score a cool route game completely by accident and tell the story. The highlight of the show is part 2 of “The Adventures of Lionman”, so kick back, relax, and enjoy a free hour of pinball goodness on us! See you at the 2016 Pinball Expo.
