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.

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.

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

Is there something else we could do to listen?
