8V Radio is a classic (pre-2000) video game music Internet radio station. After listening to others like SpriteLayer I’ve realized I’m far from alone in my respect for and adulation of classic game music and hope to do my part in preserving it through careful curation, tag-improvement and public broadcast.
The server’s live and works in Chrome and Firefox. It also works in Chrome on Android for smartphone users.
I’ve been adding new tracks from games with good soundtracks and partial metadata, having to modify the tags using Kid3 and reference Wikipedia and other databases to confirm and add credits. Some songs are not credited as I experiment with the playlist and refine the database of songs.
8V Radio is still in it’s infancy, so please let me know what chiptune or early CD music you think would make good additions.
