- Why shows about video game music?
We have an undying love and appreciation for video game music, and the various arrangement/remix scenes surrounding it. We want to share this music with the world, and to give exposure to this great art form. We want to let you know about great musicians and arrangers that you may have never heard of to encourage you to check out more works from them.
- How do I listen to the live shows, and when are they?
Arecibo Radio provides a player to stream our shows directly to your web browser, or you can simply point your favorite music player to this URL. You can listen to the shows when they are scheduled according to the sidebar on the left (all times US Eastern ). Recordings of these episodes will continue to be released right here at KNGI.
- What is Arecibo Radio?
It is an internet-based radio station with a number of weekly programs and events. According to Arecibo proprietor n0c, “Arecibo Radio seeks the odd, the strange, the outlandish, the unknown, and the oft-disregarded. We focus on underground and niche programs dedicated to certain cultures, communities, and forums that often have deep roots and ties with such communities.” It is, in essence, the realization of the original idea behind KNGI. We have partnered with Arecibo Radio to bring Nitro Game Injection, GameFuel, and all of our other shows to the masses live each week.
- What is a podcast?
Wikipedia defines a podcast as “a series of digital computer files, usually either digital audio or video, that is released periodically and made available for download by means of web syndication.” The shows hosted by KNGI are radio-style shows distributed in this manner.
- Do I need an iPod to listen?
Not at all. Despite what the terminology may imply, it is not necessary to have an iPod (or even a portable music player ) to listen to a podcast. Podcasts are generally made available as standard audio or video files. All KNGI shows are made available in the MP3 format, and as such, any software or hardware capable of playing MP3 files will be able to play any episode. We personally recommend Winamp, a free, full-featured multimedia program.
