Snowed in Inside The Retro Arcade

Hey, it’s Z-Man! Congratulations, you have survived another week and made it to the weekend. If you talk to people where I live, the upcoming forecast calls temperatures colder than the ice world of Hoth and if the parking lot at the local grocery store is any indication, apparently we are in for about eight feet of snow. Well, if you’re going to be snowed in, why not grab some hot chocolate, a few snacks, a warm blanket, and hang out with me inside The Retro Arcade, tomorrow (Friday, January 17th, 2020) from 6 to 9 pm Eastern on Magic109.com! I’ll have plenty of great music from back when we all went to school even if there was a blizzard, or at least that’s what the Facebook Meme says, from artists like Nirvana, Prince, and Tom Petty, Plus, your requests, Littleflurry picks all the music in The RetroSpective and trivia. We’ll remember The Afternoon Movie, a few of those back in my day stories, and whatever else pops into my head. So? If you remember snowball fights with friends, snow forts, and your school being the one in town to call off classes, then join me tomorrow (Friday, January 17th, 2020) as I take you back to when your grandfather walked uphill both to and from school through fifteen feet of snow while being chased by a grizzly bear inside The Retro Arcade, 6 to 9 pm Eastern, right after The Rockin’ Pop Party with Geno J on Magic 109, the only station breaking the radio dial!
