Friends, with November having finally passed us by, the self-imposed month long hiatus on podcasting is over. To celebrate the return of the Diary of An Arcade Employee podcast, I am going to be discussing 1991’s Sunset Riders from Konami. For what it might be worth this marks the first episode where I tackle a classic 4-Player arcade title – in addition, on this episode I am joined by a very special guest. Quite possibly the youngest fan we have in fact, the esteemed William Burton – who just happens to be as big a fan of Sunset Riders as I am. You might be interested to know that William is the Son of Gary Burton – a fellow writer for this site as well as being the chief technician now at the Arkadia Retrocade.


As always I have tried my level best to shine a spotlight on those talented individuals responsible for bringing Sunset Riders to life and to the arcades. In addition I have managed to find a few vintage audio treats for your listening pleasure – to say nothing of giving a brief rundown on the gameplay for the title.

I do thank you for taking time out of your very busy schedule to check out the show – I think you will find this is a special show, I had an amazing amount of fun with it and hope you will enjoy it. Strap on your six-shooters and saddle up as we tackle 1991’s Sunset Riders!
