How can I make a map from Port Huron, MI to Fort Myers, FL showing the available National Public Radio stations along the route?

    Huge public radio fan, so I looked this up myself and wrote up a webapp that allows you to do just that. Check it out:

    Seems like it's gone now, so that sucks. Look up stations throughout the trip using this, I guess?

    If you have an Android phone/tablet go to Google Play and search for NPR.
    They have their own app plus there is a 3rd party app specifically for finding NPR stations:
    "- Read, listen, or create a playlist of your favorite NPR stories and share with friends.
    - Hear live streams from hundreds of NPR stations: search by location (GPS) or zip code / call letters
    - Listen to programs like Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Talk of the Nation, Fresh Air, and Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me More"

    I went to Hovsep A's posted link to "http://lifehacker.com/5992643/everything-you-need-to-prepare-for-a-long-road-trip" which at the end refers to NPR's road trip tool. However NPR's road trip tool seems to be out of service for an indefinite period. several jumps down the lifehacker link is a link to: "NPR roadtrip page which will help you find stations along your way." However the page it links to only lets one find NPR stations close to a particular location e.g. "Detroit" which, since the road trip feature has been removed by NPR, is only useful for advance planning if you have a device connected to the internet in the car so you can input your current location.
    Printing screenshots may work, but will use a lot of paper and ink for a long trip.
