Hey friends, it's your pal Shugnussy here to spill the beans and tell you exactly what's up at Radio Nintendo.

It's been a fun year for Radio Nintendo in 2015, we got the new site all launched up, a brand new stream that can handle many, many listeners, and much higher quality music. We have our new chat system which does not require Java or any kind of ad-filled web application. All you need to join the chat room is a Radio Nintendo account, which you can create here! Along side all that, waaaay back in April, our team was at the Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo playing tons of video game music in New Westminster, BC which was, as always, a fun experience!

Now I know a lot of you have many questions on what to expect from Radio Nintendo in the future. Will you produce more live shows? What happened to your old content? What other projects are you working on? Luckily for you folks, I'm here to answer many of those for you today.

Will you produce more live shows?

The simple answer, yes, we are interested in bringing back live programming in DJ sets, talk shows, and various other live formats. If you currently run a podcast, or wish to begin live audio broadcasting, feel free to shoot me an email at nintendojack@gmail.com. With that said, when we see a demand from producers who wish to broadcast, then we will resume live programming on Radio Nintendo.

What happened to your old content?

Ah, yes, the good 'ol days of Radio Nintendo. The Minus World, Live Nintendo, Silver's Saturday Show, Talk to the Animal, Game Freaks Live and many others... That content is currently not available on the Radio Nintendo website sadly, however, a lot of those people are still producing content online! If you're looking for the Minus World gang, you can find them over here. Live Nintendo switched over to Blitcast before departing from Radio Nintendo, that content can be found here. SilverSonic isn't doing radio these days, but he's doing frequent live streams on his twitch, and I'd also like to note he made it to Summer Games Done Quick a few months a go to speedrun Shadow the Hedgehog for charity! James is currently doing one-off broadcasts over on Chipbit, his chiptune exclusive radio. Finally you can catch whatever IllusDark8 is doing over at his Radio Whirlwind (which he still needs me to help run).

And yes, those good 'ol Radio Nintendo shows that used to be on air are saved, and you may see those podcasts return to Radio Nintendo in the future! But for now, go enjoy the other content they produce!

What other projects are you working on?

We're going to be testing several ideas. From multiple radio streams playing different content, to lower bandwidth streams that don't use a lot of data so you can listen on a cellular network where you may be limited on your data allotment. We're also in contact with several key people in the video game music industry looking to bring you exclusive content. For more on the back end, we will be rolling out a newer version of our content management system, Baconcore, which will allow site admins and future show hosts to better manage their content on the site. Other than that, there aren't many other things we have planned, at least not developed enough to reveal them, only to have them maybe not see the light of day.

Anyway, thanks again for sticking around with Radio Nintendo, you don't know how happy it makes me seeing everyone here. Also, I'll be sure to set up a special Christmas eve broadcast this year, it's killing me that we missed the holiday shows last year. And if you have anymore questions, just leave them below in the comments!

    Yes, a query is asked for the fitness for the blocks for all signs for the field. The element of the sound and best writing services is fired for the top of the turns. The chip is issued for humans. Element iodine for humans. The candidate is invited to the reforms for all issues of the modes.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the new and improved Radio Nintendo! We have rebuilt the site from the ground up, adding all sorts of features along the way. We hope that this new site will help improve everyone's experience with Radio Nintendo.

Here is a brief rundown of some of the new changes and features:

  • We are no longer using XiinEngine, and are now using 'Baconcore', a CMS being developed by Bacon.
  • We have added a new in-page player that will continue to play music, even as you browse around the site.
  • The site design has been completely redone from scratch, and there may be more themes in the future.
  • Shows listed on the ‘Shows’ page display more useful information. (This will be noticeable when shows are added.)
  • The interface for hosts to manage their shows is currently being redesigned, with ease of use in mind.
  • A whole heap of other smaller changes and features, to help make Radio Nintendo feel more seamless than ever before.

As the site is still in development, there are bound to be bugs. If you find any bugs or have any suggestions, feel free to email them to us at dev@radionintendo.com.

    Just wondering, how do you guys receive this music? Also, if one has to pay for using the music, why are there no ads?

      Hey, Jerry!

      Great question! I manage the stream and ensure that I look far and wide looking through archives and public sites for the music. It's a hard task but I'm able to find it at the best quality possible.

      As for ads, we don't put ads on as we are able to pay for the site on our own and we'd like to keep our dedication to being non-profit.

      Thanks for asking.
