We listened to a lot of wonderful music and met a lot of wonderful people during Train Station at 8's first year of podcasting, so we decided to say farewell to 2014 with a tribute celebrating all of those good times. The invitations went out and resulted in this mega-sized episode featuring Jayson Napolitano, Alyssa Menes, Will and Karl Brueggeman, Andrew Luers (OA), Deia Vengen (DragonAvenger), and Matthew Tucciarone (Major Third). It's a packed table this week and there's way too much to talk about, so sit back and join us for a two-hour adventure into the past!
Make sure you stick around until the very end for guest appearances by Christophe Blondel (CarboHydroM), Joe and Christina Walker, Morgan Sleeper, Kevin VanOrd, Stevo Bortz (Level 99), and DiGi Valentine. We like them a lot.
Lastly, we'd like to thank every guest and listener we've ever had. We're grateful to the max that you've shared your time and enthusiasm with us, so stick around as we have no intention of stopping now!
