The only sell out I have experienced from them is that in the mornings, they now have some sort of a talk show. It didn't used to be like this. It used to be that they were the only station out there that would play music, non-stop. Well, with commercials but you know what I mean. Another thing I enjoy about them is that while they might speed up the music, they don't make it seem like you are listening to it on fast-forward.
I subscribe to Pandora (pay version), MOG, and Spotify. I love Pandora and prefer MOG over Spotify. MOG and Spotify stream at 320K and can sound really good. Even Pandora at 192K for the pay version is wonderful. I've discovered so many new artists this way. It's great.
As a jazz fan living in a rural state, Internet Radio has saved me. I love jazzradio.com for its variety of jazz genres but mostly listen to jazz24.org as it has a better quality stream at no charge.
Streaming radio is one of the unsung heroes of the Internet. It personifies "place shifting" where you can listen to your favorite station from anywhere.
Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of Dallas Mavericks made his fortune in this area because he convinced Yahoo of this potential long before the economics made sense, and sold his company to them for nearly $6 billion dollars! The company had just a few million dollars in revenue!!! Oh, the crazy days of dot com boom.....
Be civil to all, socialble to many familiair with few, frieindly to one, enemy to none.
I hang my head in shame. Just plain old unfashionable iTunes radio, I record programs with Radiolover and put them on my mac mini and ipod. Listen a bit almost every day with some kind of headphone and at the gym.
I'm tired of brain hurt from all the smart phone and digital media crap that has become the new cutting edge vogue. It seems like whirling dervish madness, since everything will be replaced in a year.
My wife and I went off the grid t internet or cell phones for a few days. It was refreshing.
Mornin', fellas. For those interested in internet radio, you might want to check out radio paradise. Even if you are not interested in internet radio, you may want to check out radio paradise. Enjoy.
I'm also a fan of Pandora, and Radio paradise. Radiotime.com is an aggregator of streaming stations used by several music servers (including Sonos, Autonomic Controls, and Nuvo) which can also be accessed from any PC.
Spotify allows you to listen to any song, at any time, if it's in their catalog. Free version is commercial supported, and $10/mo is commercial free. When I tried the paid version a year or so ago, I found their catalog lacking, but tried it again recently and was surprised to find more selections.
I'd like to plug WTMD, a public radio station (no commercials) out of Towson, MD. 'Radio for Music People,' they offer quite a mix of cutting edge indie, classic rock (think Steely Dan), and some 50s and 60s. Streaming online at WTMD.org. Similar mix to Radioparadise.
