Hey friends, it's Shugnussy!

Today I'd like to discuss Radio Nintendo's alternate streams. As you all may know, back in Feburary we partnered with Shinesparkers to celebrate Metroid's 30th Anniversary with the internet's first Metroid Radio station. The project has been a success so far with new content coming soon. Shortly after the launch of Shinesparkers stream, we started testing a radio stream solely dedicated to music from the Super Nintendo. We didn't formally announce this feature, we just added it to our stream directory in the onsite player. In fact, I don't think we formally announced our stream directory on our onsite player either, whoops! To access it, just hit that setting button next to the listener count, and you'll see all the available streams Radio Nintendo is broadcasting on our server.

We had a few listeners enjoy the SNES stream, however, starting today, I've switched the SNES stream to a Nintendo 64 stream, just to test some additional features. This is not permanent change, as we're looking to add additional stations to the site in the future. We'd like to know, what 24/7 radio station would you like to listen to? Should we have stations by console, game series, or game genre? What would you listen to? Feel free to drop a comment on this post, or talk about it with us in our chatroom. Please also let us know of any other issues you may have with the stream. I'm planning to launch 2 streams by the end of the month, with a possibility of more on the way.

Before I end off this post, I'd like to say that yes, live content is returning to Radio Nintendo. We have a set of new hosts ready to bring you content. Before we do however, we are still working on our onsite shows systems, and how we will distribute podcasts to listeners who miss the live broadcast. If you would like to create live audio content on Radio Nintendo, please send me an email at nintendojack@gmail.com! There is much work to be done here at Radio Nintendo, so please hang tight, and as always, keep listening to video game music!
