04-29-2008, 10:58 PM #1App for Streaming any FM station?
Greetings all. I am looking for an application that lets me enter in the frequency of an FM station and listen to it via the web. The station i'm looking for has a streaming option, but sometimes iTunes can't connect. They are local and probably don't have a lot of bandwidth... so sometimes i can't stream them. Is there an application that will let me choose the call letters and frequency (like 105.3) and location, and act as an antenna... then let me stream the audio? Thanks for any help.The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by how its animals are treated.

Have you tried www.live365.com? They have a lot of free radio stations you can access on the Internet. You may find the one you are trying to listen to via iTunes.
I'm not to familiar with any apps on the Mac that you could try.

That's usually the issue with web streaming: Bandwidth is expensive, so it's often limited.
The Radioshark might be an interesting non-internet alternative though...
