episode 10: Vintage Arcade Games: This Game Is Not Over [transcript]

Date: 14th March 2021

Name of show: A Midlife Less Ordinary

Episode title and number: Season 1 Episode 10

 Brief summary of show:

Episode 10 of this A Midlife Less Ordinary season sees Wayne & Trev on a virtual pilgrimage to their childhood spent in the town they grew up in at the seafront arcades. The sounds, the smells and the of all things dropped sausages all get a mention here as the arcade nostalgia is bought to the front of their minds.

Who remembers the iconic Defender and Asteroids and the difficulty the games were set at which were consuming your 10 pence pieces by the bucket load. Co-host Wayne had almost forgotten how much of his childhood had been influenced by the arcades and their treasure trove of games and it comes across here as he seems more than a little bit excited at remembering the theme tunes to those blockbuster games. Trev, as always explains how he could afford to go on any game he liked as he had an abundance of cash at all times of life.
