Do you remember rock n’ roll radio? If not, we won’t take it personally. After all, with services like Spotify, Rdio, Slacker and Turntable.fm to choose our tunes from, computer and smartphone users have never been more spoiled for choice when it comes to music. Commercial-free music is available to anyone that wants it, provided they’re willing to do the work of setting up an account and picking the tunes they want to listen to. For those of us that prefer to sit back and let someone else do the aural heavy lifting for us, and consider radio to still be an important part of our daily lives, there’s Radio, our Chrome Web App of the Week.
Users of DoubleTime’s Radio Chrome web app, may not be able to pick each and every song they listen to, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have any musical options available to them. The application offers up some of the most popular radio stations in the world, with new channels being added on a regular basis. For individuals traveling or working abroad, Radio is a dream come true: expatriates can listen to streaming news, music, and sports coverage from a wide variety of countries around the world in multiple languages, making it a great way to stay up to date with happens at home.
Best of all, if your favorite radio station isn’t currently featured in the application, Radio’s developers are open to request--just like a DJ.
Be sure to check back every week for another edition of Maximum PC’s Chrome Web App of the Week.
