Retro Arcade DJ

My last post got me to thinking about an oft forgotten aspect of the great video arcades of the 1970s and 80s...the music. At the Aladdin's Castle in the mall near my home in Texas, these soundtracks featured a colossal mashup of rock, r&b, punk, pop and new wave hits, coupled with cheesy DJ commentary during segues between songs. If I remember correctly some of the syndicated programs even had advertisements for new game consoles during commercial breaks.

So with that being said, and with far too much time on my hands, I created a playlist of my own. It's best listened to on random.


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones
