The Demento Dimension! (w/ Xeres of Xeron) (#234) (843)

In this episode, I’m joined by Xeres of Xeron, who wrote and programmed this show, too. (With a little help from me, too.) Two hours of novelty music! Help us raise money for the Parade of Pennies, before we both find out it is a scam. And enjoy some excellent tunes, too.
