Ooh, I like this.

They've got four channels: rock, mellow, eclectic/world music, and a general mix. Keep in mind the "general" one is still pretty eclectic - right now, they're playing Gogol Bordello, which should give you an idea. I'm on eclectic/world now; the last four have been Dusted, Benoit Pioulard, Loreena McKennitt, and, somewhat surprisingly, Enigma. Right before them was the Kora Jazz Trio, which sounded supercool. :cool:

It's made by a Russian programmer, if that is of concern to you. (It actually seems to be to some bigoted dimbulbs I've dealt with on Twitter.)

My current faves list includes WYPR, WTMD, and WJZ locally; WKCR in New York, one of the Crooner Radio channels (Paris), 113FM (San Diego), Radio One (New Zealand), aNONradio (Seattle), Arctic Outpost AM1270 in Longyearbyen, Norway, Yacht Rock Miami (for those yacht rock moments), the Echoes of Bluemars channels for spacy beep-beep music...occasionally I'll dig into Radio Caprice (Moscow), Radio Art (Athens), or some such.
I've now programmed the Baltimore City and Howard County police scanners into RadioSure. Let me know if you want the feed addresses. :geek:

*sigh* Broadcastify apparently changes the feed address on a regular basis, so I can't program the thing with any regularity. Ridiculous. :x

Bigger concern: this now seems to be abandonware. A small user community is trying to keep it going, but I don't expect much.

And sometimes I'm invisible...
All day long, I'm just a-rightin' wrongs,
And makin' evil villains miser'ble!
