To anyone born after the Internet went mainstream, I would like to introduce to you an amazing invention that we PreNets (Pre-Internets — what I call anyone born before the Internet age) used when listening to music or the news.

It is an amazing device but it had its limitations though. You couldn’t decide the music — it decided for you. And the radio decided what news was the most important. Yes, I know. Medieval concepts.

But the radio stations have thrived online Tune Into TuneIn Online Radio & Listen to Unlimited Music, Sports & Talk Shows Tune Into TuneIn Online Radio & Listen to Unlimited Music, Sports & Talk Shows Is radio listening back in vogue? I think it has been for quite some time. One only needs to follow the trail of advertisers, or for us who live in the online world – the...

Here are 5 of them.

Radio.com

Radio.com seems to be solely confined to the US, which is a pity, considering its cool URL. You would think that a site called radio.com would have an international angle to it.

At the top, you can filter by genre or location. So if you want some good Gospel music to make your day, then this is the site to get it.

Streema

Streema

Streema is much better in my opinion, because it does have international stations. In fact, it even found the small station in the town where I live, here in Germany.

When you have found the station you want, a pop-up window opens with the radio player. In some cases, you may need to download Silverlight to make the player work.

New York Public Radio

As the name says, this one is solely confined to New York, but it appealed to me in some way. Which is why I included it. There’s something about New York radio that makes it always enjoyable to listen to, no matter where you are based.

ESPN Radio

This one is for all you sports fans out there (which doesn’t include me unfortunately). Tune in to get the latest on the NFL, the NBA, NASCAR, and much more.

If you click on a menu at the top of the screen, you can also be taken to ESPN in the United Kingdom, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela.

Live-Radio

Live Radio is a site with a nice selection of sites worldwide. First you choose the continent, then you click on the country on the map, then it gives you what it has, which sometimes is not much. But sometimes you hit the motherlode. Brazil’s stations for example had me shaking my booty all around the apartment.

One slight downside is that some live feeds are not working, but if you go to the station’s direct link, it seems to work from there.

So mark today in your calendar. This is the day you were told about a wonderful antique device called the radio. If any of you oldies know about the best radio sources, stick them in the comments section below.

    Yes, to both TuneIn and to Radio Sure. I also like Screamer Radio, and both the latter ones have the record function.

    Tunein.com should be on this list. Great website and app for listening to worldwide radio stations.

      I didn't forget about it, but I am not allowed to mention things that we have already previously covered on MUO. If you search the site, you will see that TuneIn has made several appearances :-)

    Small program called RadioSure....stations from all over the world..with a RECORD function.
    I use it along with Maxi-Timer to listen to Old Time Radio shows.

      Seems the free version of RadioSure only works for 48 hours.

      Also, I can not find it in the Google Play store for my Android phone.

      Sorry, forgot to mention, I paid $10 for the program several years ago and no there is no mobile app...I use XiiaLive on Nexus 5.Works well.
