A new discovery to me http://radio.garden/listen/free-radio-luxembourg/1bkFhvXR

Give it a try. Radio stations from all over the world. :winkthumbs:

I note a paucity of Chinese stations. However, this one makes up for it:
http://radio.garden/listen/shirley-spinoza-radio/BgoQjOjJ

That has to be encoded secret squirrel stuff (well, at 10:45am anyway).

[Edit: back to normal music now. But the other stuff was proper avant garde.]
[Edit2: it broke into French, and now it's back to the random stuff. I think the aliens may be coming.]
[Edit 3:http://compound-eye.org/currently/ 'Computron now play...'. Not very Chinese. Just mildly unhinged. ]

What an amazing tool for discovering what my friends in Oklahoma city are (probably not) listening to.

And a 'very' inovative method of tuning. I found Kennet Radio in Newbury at the first try and without even zooming in.

I set the link on my first post to radio Luxembourg because many years ago when I was young that was the only station worth listening to until the pirates came along.

Rumour has it that the fading in and out was deliberate.

I submitted a radio station to Radio Garden and it was accepted. Englishwaves.fr which is a French radio station broadcast in English.

Well done Rae. Is this a station that you normally listen to?

Someone's been blabbing to the damn BBC, it was on the radio this morning, being talked about by someone who called it an app.
