My squeeze box has died (RIP); I used it primarily for internet radio.

I have a pc that can pick up the duty but can’t seem to find a good internet radio guide.

Can anyone recommend a good website that is all about radio, real stations and internet based? I’m not really looking for a music service or building playlists or anything like that just good old fashion radio (albeit transmitted digitally over the internet into my home!)

I’m looking for a search, click and play type of website.

Thanks for any recommendations.

RP is a blend of many styles and genres of music, carefully selected and mixed by two real human beings. You'll hear modern and classic rock, world music, electronica, even a bit of classical and jazz. What you won't hear are random computer-generated playlists or mind-numbing commercials.

in iTunes there is an option for internet radio stations. they list about 12000 across several genres and you can set it to view the stream quality. great guide to start with.

^^^I listen to this station 2-3 hours per day after work. It suits me and many others perfectly.

But you can always check out something like this:

Consider running a software version of your squeezebox on the PC. I do.

For a website that agglomerates streaming radio, you might try Shoutcast. https://www.shoutcast.com/

Feedback welcomed!

+1 for Radio Paradise. I also use Jazz FM91 out of Toronto and Jazz24 plus Virginia Music, an all female jazz vocal station. All of these have good sound judging from my experience.

My Shaw TV service has Gemini/Galaxie stations with different forms of Music, but also has a bunch of Radio stations from different cities available on the same menu, and I run a feed into my Stereo, but that makes it Analog I guess :-(, there's no computer in my listening room.

Ott.

resurrected this thread as I have been throughly enjoying the Miled music Rhythm and Blues station over the past few days. iTunes states it is broadcasting at 256; can also be found on Tunein. Haven't explored any of their other offerings but what I have been treated to has been a stream of female vocal blues/jazz fusion with a bit of raw blues mixed in.

1.FM used to be my go too radio but it is now radio paradise (thanks Jared)
The buffering is excellent with RP especially in areas of poor internet (Mexico)
The music is not for everyone but I really enjoy the mix
certainly try 1.FM as there are many choices the Blues Jazz and classic rock selections are really good
