I've been using wunder radio for several months, but I frequently experience a station stopping or not starting. Altho it has a limited station selection, I've found aol radio to be much more stable and reliable.
My solution is streaming the radio stations wirelessly from my PC to my iPod Touch using TVersity. I can pretty much pick ANY stations that I want from the Internet. I'm not bound to any particular app. If Windows Media Player can play it, so can my iPod. It's not limited to just audio either. You can stream video as well. However, it needs to transcode the video into MP4 first before streaming it to the iPod due to Safari's shortcomings of video streams. (Thanks again Apple. hehe)
Yes, you can! I just discovered this myself. It's a tad involved, but if you have a list of stations you listen to regularly, it's worth the effort.
First, make sure you are syncing your bookmarks. Click on your iPhone (or iPod touch) in the Devices section in iTunes. Click the Info tab and scroll down to Web Browser. Check the box and select the web browser you use.
Create a playlist in iTunes. Drag the streams you want into the list. For each stream, select Get Info (Command-I on Mac, or Ctrl-I on Windows). Click on Edit URL, then copy the URL to the clipboard. Go to the web browser you selected above, and add a bookmark for that URL. I put all mine into a folder called "streams" to make it easy to get to on my phone.
Now sync your iPhone, then open the browser on it. Click on Bookmarks (open book icon) and click on the stream you want. Voilà!
I should have mentioned that the method I posted allows you to listen in the background, however, you won't be able to use the web browser while listening (because you have to click the Done button to stop the stream to get a browser window). It's also free and does not require jailbreaking.
You are right uRabbit; my bad.
I did, however, find that the free app called TuneIn Radio can do the trick.
You have to add the url as a 'custom URL' in the 'My Presets' tab, and then add the stream as a favorite by pushing the heart icon on the top-right portion of the streaming page.
Of course the last method I suggested can work if one is willing to surf in Opera which is not even my own favorite choice!
I use an app called TuneIn Radio Pro. I Think there's a free version as well. It's great. Clear Channel Communication recently forced their stations to be pulled from this app. For those ones there is an app called iHeartRadio. But I really like TuneIn. One thing I can do with it is tune in a show, and if I'm gonna be away from my desk for a meeting or something, I can turn the volume down, but record it. Then come back and listen at my leisure. My brother in law clued me into this app. He paid about 5-6 bucks for it. I got it for 99 cents when I bought it. Screamin deal.
