Rick and I make a triumphant return to the studio in this epic episode filled with epic awesomeness!

New show segment "Pin O' the Month" where we discuss the history behind Gottlieb's 1981 Black Hole!

We also discuss a long distance trip to Pennsylvania to pick up a Hurricane pin, what else we have been up to, and what the future holds!  

 

The best Black Hole pin in the galaxy, mine!

In this long awaited episode, we discuss what all we have been up to since our last episode in January.  We recap the 2015 Ohio Pinball Show, talk about a new-in-box Stern pin purchase, and discuss my trip to Asheville, NC to re-visit the Asheville Pinball Museum.

Want to add better sound to your pins for fairly cheap?  We also discuss adding a powered subwoofer instead of costly full speaker upgrades.
