Radio

Here it comes


The new competition:

We have an old high-milage beater Dodge minivan that we use to transport the dogs to the vet and the kennel with and to rescue other stranded dogs and cats from the pound to take to their new adoptive families.  It's not pretty, but it has a neat stereo input jack to plug in two RCA plugs..so I connected my Palm Treo to the AUX input.. Within minutes I was hearing streaming audio from KOOL in Phoenix, KIXI in Seattle, KAAM in Dallas...and on and on..even Rivera Radio in Monaco..and it sounded right up there with Sirius or XM.  Not quite FM, but not as bad as a cassette.
...
I could even hear those kids on WKID in my CAR in Atlanta!  And Old Time Radio shows from Philly..and Country music from Canada, and Classic Rock from an online only station in Savannah..and on and on and on..forever!  Adult Standards if I want them..when I want them..from Los Angeles, and New York City, and Grants, New Mexico.  There is a guy streaming lounge music in Elko, Nevada...Wow..I'm a kid again! - Jeff Laurence, posting at Radio-Info
Do you remember the last time anybody got this enthusiastic about radio in the car?  (I think it was around the time FM stereo was introduced.)

1 I was rather taken with Lubbock's KDAV during my Trans-Texas Tour, but not so much as to peel off $120 per annum for their stream.
