    Internet Music Radio Station
    Do you have favorite music internet radio you like to listen to at work or home that is for free. Please let us know :)

    I like to listen to Accuradio's Easy Listening music channel where they play pop songs from 60's (click on the speaker icon on left). The bit rate is not too high, but sound qualilty and music is good.

    Thanks Recovery

    One thing I realized about internet radio is no matter what the bit rates are (some are 320 kbps), sound quality does not match even MP3 at same rate. It still have that "whooosheeee" signature sound.

    There have been alot of improvment and innovations in video delivery over the net in last 10 years (latest being Flash Streaming), but audio delivery technology seem to have stayed stagnant.

    Audio Bill started a recent thread about Janco.com.
    I countered that is sounded a lot like Pandora, but it sounds like that took the Pandora idea and improved on it.
