8bitX Radio Network was founded in 2006, as a way to pay tribute to Video Game Cover Bands, DJs, and embrace the VGM scene. The mission has been to help new music and bands get noticed and for the listeners to get to know the artists behind the music.

Since that time we have grown into 13+ shows surrounding the culture of video games. Our shows feature dynamic personalities and an interactive approach to the audience that makes each show unique. The entire schedule can be found here:


During the day enjoy our hand selected playlist of songs from across the VGM landscape. Too many artists to name, but you will find the latest music on there from many of the Stage 2 performers listed above.
