If you have an iPod or iPhone, you've used iTunes to transfer music and video, but how many of you have ever checked out the radio feature in iTunes? Now, granted, in the beginning there were more mediocre stations than really good ones, but that has changed. More and more local stations are being included, without jumping through hoops to add the streaming web address. There are dozens of stations that cover everything from comedy and classical to sports, talk and religion.


As most of you know by now, our own Calvin Carson (see those Friday posts!) is part of the crew on WJR's Internet Advisor Show on Saturdays. I've taken advantage of their web stream in Safari in the past, but listening through iTunes is much easier. 


Me, I'm an opera freak. I cut my teeth on Verdi and Bizet and have more Italian and French opera recordings than I will ever admit. I have at least three of four full opera recordings on each of my iPods. They are my stress busters.

I guess what I'm saying is, if you haven't checked the various radio stations available through iTunes, you're missing out. There's something for everyone. Try it. You might be surprised.

  1. Thanks Phyllis,

    I’ve known about iTunes Radio for a while and I can confirm that the variety of choices is very broad.

    The ability to pull radio is really great. I find local radio one of the things that allows you to have a little piece of home with you while you are “on the road”.

    Like listening to “The Internet Advisor” in one of the other 12 states that the radio signal does not reach. Like to my friends in Hawaii.

    Great tip Phyl.
