Radium offers a slick, lightweight Internet radio experience for your Mac

Last month, I asked whether Snowtape was the best Internet radio app for OS X. The answer is, of course, that it depends on what you're looking for. I recently had a chance to check out Radium, a very different -- but also very good -- Mac Internet radio app. While Snowtape is a more feature-heavy, iTunes-like app, Radium is slick and lightweight. It offers a ton of stations and a minimal UI that...

Find and tune into internet radio stations with RadioTuna

Long before Pandora, Last.fm, and other music web sites started offering customized streams of music tailored to your taste, there were old fashioned radio stations that were streaming music online the old-fashioned way: by playing one song after another whether you liked them or not. As someone who has worked from home for the past few years, I've found internet radio stations to be a constant...

Screamer: Portable Internet Radio Streamer

While I know it's no big deal to dump a couple of gigs of music onto my 8GB flash drive, sometimes it's nice to fire up some streaming radio for a change of pace. Screamer is available both as an installable application and as a portable executable. Go with the portable version, and you'll be able to take your presets with you wherever you can plug in your USB flash drive. Click on presets, and...

Last.fm hits Windows Mobile

Fancy Last.fm? Fancy Windows Mobile? Then you'd probably fancy the Last.fm Windows Mobile app currently in development, which happens to be called Last.fm Mobile. The Pocket PC version includes scrobbling and experimental radio functionality, but the Smartphone version can only scrobble from Windows Media Player. The app has a healthy backing of supporters at the Last.fm forum, which is where you...

Pandora forced to pull the final plug on UK service

Attention UK Pandora users: as of January 15, 2008, Pandora will stop streaming its Internet radio content. This comes more than six months after Pandora was forced to shut-down service to most non-US users and is the latest in the continually messy battle over licensing Internet radio. A reader just forwarded us an e-mail from Pandora, explaining the situation. Here are the pertinent bits: ...As...

Music to our ears: SoundExchange and webcasters reach compromise

Net radio isn't dead yet. SoundExchange, the organization responsible for collecting royalties from online broadcasters has reached an agreement with the Digital Media Association that will allow the music to keep playing, we think. A quick history less: Earlier this year, the U.S. Copyright Royalty Board voted to raise rates for internet broadcasters. In some cases, the new rates could have cost...

Schedule online radio recordings with RaimaRadio

Remember radio? You know, that little box with the knobs and dials on it that lets you listen to music or talk shows? You might still have one in your car. But odds are you listen to radio over the internet when you're at the office. On the go, you might download some radio programs as podcasts. But what if there's no podcast for your favorite show? That's where RaimaRadio comes in. There are a...

Court rejects webcasters request for rate hike delay

Lawmakers have gotten involved, webcasters held a day of silence protest, and SoundExchange has agreed to reduce its fees (although that offer was rejected). But the big day is still just around the corner. On Sunday, the U.S. will levy new royalty rates on internet broadcasters. In some cases, those rates could be high enough to seriously threaten the existence of smaller stations and web sites....

June 26th: a day without internet radio

Next month internet radio stations will have to begin paying new royalty rates that will be high enough in some cases to put the webcasters out of business. Of course, the implementation date has been pushed back a few times, and Congress is considering legislation that could help out the internet radio stations. But advocates for independent radio are making their voices heard -- by shutting off...

Slacker - new desktop app for your tunes

Slacker the internet radio for people who are, uh slackers, or too weary to create playlists for their tunes, has just released a desktop app in beta. You can now manage your entire music library and create playlists. (Gasp!) This goes without saying, but only if you want to. You can still be the slacker you were before you downloaded the desktop app. Some neat features of the desktop app are...

Lala to launch free music on demand service

Music website Lala plans to launch a new music on demand service soon. While online radio sites like Pandora or Last.fm let provide a stream of audio tailored to your tastes, Lala's service will let you click on an individual song and listen to it. Currently that's only something you can do with subscription services like Rhapsody. There's just one problem. It costs money to stream audio on...

Last.fm adds music video service

What do you do if you've got an internet radio station, but the future of online radio is murky? Add video, of course. Because no content owners have ever demanded much of internet companies that offer video. Last.fm plans to add video to its site this week, allowing users to create custom music video channels much the way they can currently create custom music stations. The music will be encoded...

Slacker great for lazy music lovers

There are untold fortunes to me made in this world, as long as you live by one cardinal rule: never underestimate the laziness of consumers. This is the guiding logic behind a new "intuitive" mp3 player launched by the Slacker Company. Slacker and their new gadget called... The Slacker (creative, no?) are set to be available in June and cost around $150 for a 2 Gig model, and $400 for 12 Gigs. The...

Net Radio gets two more months to live

The Copyright Royalty Board has delayed implementation of the new royalty rates on internet broadcasters that had been set to take effect May 15th. The new rates will now be effective on July 15th, giving netcasters a few more months to try to reach a deal to prevent the coming apocalypse. Basically, internet radio producers say the new rates would be so high that most online radio services would...
