8bit FM is a nice streaming online radio station that is devoted to chiptune music and classic game soundtracks.

Woo! You used my pixel

Also you might want to listen to slay radio http://www.slayradio.org/home.php

It's remixes of C64 tunes and most can be downloaded from http://remix.kwed.org/

I'd rather do what I do now and just get all the game soundtracks (usually in their native formats whether AY, MOD, SID, NSF) and listen to whichever ones I like on Winamp with the required plugins.   Last time I tried listening to a retro game radio station it was often too focused on stuff I hated and also a lot of bland remixes that sucked the life and genius out of some of the classic chiptunes.

It doesn't work for me either.

Sorry guys. It worked when I added this news item maybe it'll be fixed soon.

Nectarine is a similar (but actually working, streaming) radio station.

Based around the demoscene and older systems you won't hear a lot of mario/zelda but more C64 covers and original chiptunes. Currently playing: a song with soundbites of doom and wolfenstein3D.

Seems the stream itself is down. Either that or their IP changed and they haven't updated the playlist links yet.

I can't get this to work either.

Tried it on all 4 reccomended programs "service unavailable."

Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/27/2010 06:34

Damn. I'm getting service unavailable from WinAmp :( [2]

Is there something else we could do to listen?
