Best old Games - Best old games is back with a fresh design change to their site and adds Lode Runner: The Legend Returns and Super SOlvers: Treasure Mountain! Welcome back BOG!
DJ Old Games - The DJ of Old Games have added Fortress of Narzod from 1983 and Frogger from 1981 respectively.
New sources and pioneers for really old gaming music is hard to find. Especially those for the Commondore, Amiga and them 80s/90s consoles. And yes, while there definitely are some solid communities for demos (i.e Pouet), scene music (i.e Nectarine Radio), and even remixes (i.e Remix Kwed, Slay Radio, w.m) and more retro gaming podcasts than you can throw your hat at, they seldom focus on one platform. Sometimes you just want to sit back and stay while with some curated retro tunes.
One such foray into the specific is the Ericade Radio Network, where it's all about the Amiga and the music made for that machine.
Hosted by Daemon, a swedish programmer, that's been doing this more or less since the 90s (!) it's all about Amiga mod music in the purest sense. The radio features a live host that comments and talks about the music you listen to, which is a seldom treat these days. You can listen to the radio stream here.
They too have a podcast for some of their regularly scheduled contents that runs on Saturdays, called Amiga Flashback.
