Although I can't stand the real audio format..or real radio for that matter, those streams that play in winamp are great. I listen to web radio more than I listen to my cd's/mp3's... although it's too bad the Drone Zone is no longer online
What a difference it makes in quality when broadcaster don't have to meet large oprating costs...
I was listening to alot of DJshows last week but I kept getting repeat programs :-( I need some live audio. !
Dnbarena's great for archives but low sound quality.
I listen to selected FM still.
CFUV here in Victoria (U.Vic station) minimal commercials and good tunes *shameless plug* esp Hi-Fidelity wed. 11:30-1am
and CBC's ok, it was alot better a few years ago before the mass amounts of call in shows came in to effect.
Brave new waves still rocks. and well patty schmitt's voice is damn sexy.
I never really gave internet radio a fair shake, after having impressions formed in the early years of streaming technologies. But I'm a regular proton radio listener these days. Their content kicks ass and is continuously innovative.
The only problem I'm seeing with the whole internet radio thing is in its sustainability. Commercials do suck but bills gotta be paid yo
