Videogame & Demoscene Music Radio Streams
Having digged around recently in search for videogame music radio stations and found a couple of decent ones. Here’s a list of some of the old ones that probably everyone knows already but also a couple of streams that were completely new to me …
Kohina – www.kohina.com – Everybody knows them, very 8bit, very piko piko, a lot of C64 tunes mixed with a very good selection of Japanese Videogame and Arcade music. Sometimes also Spectrum music that sounds more like sizzling oil in the frying pan.
Nectarine – www.scenemusic.eu/demovibes – The Demoscene Radio, lots of the typical European Demoscene music and as that very good. Unfortunately they recently often also play some very strange vocal pop/rock-like homebrew stuff that sounds everything else but good.
No-Life Radio – nolife-radio.com – Surprisingly good station! Lots of varying game soundtrack, both Western and Japanese, 8-bit, 16-bit and modern soundtracks in abundance, spiked with Jingles by GlaDOS
Retro PC Game Music Streaming Radio – gyusyabu.ddo.jp/MP3/MP3.html – A Japanese radio stream and the name is program here … plays nonstop pre-2K DOS/Adlib style Game music. Nice for a change when you’re grew tired of Kohina.
Radio SEGA – www.radiosega.net – Haven’t given this one much time to listen to yet but obviously plays a lot of music of SEGA titles.
CGM UKScene Radio – www.lmp.d2g.com – Somehow very similar in style to Nectarine. As of now only lo-fi stream available. It’s a good idea to listen to Nectarine and whenever they play those horrid vocal tracks, switch to this station!
… Know of any other related streams that are worth to mention? Let me know!
