FAQ

  1. 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.
  2. How do I listen to the live shows, and when are they?
    The information for listening to the 8bitX Radio Network can be found here. You can listen to the shows when they are scheduled. Recordings of these episodes will continue to be released right here at KNGI.
  3. What is 8bitX?
    The 8bitX Radio Network is a group of radio shows celebrating geek culture. The place for the best live variety shows centered around geek culture, video games, and everything absurd, entertaining the masses while exploiting the memories of our youth and bringing back feelings of nostalgia! We have partnered with 8bitX to bring KNGI content to the masses live each week.
  4. 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.
  5. Do I need an iPod to listen?
    Not at all. Despite what the terminology may imply, it’s 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.
