Radio Apps

My favourite selection of online and on air stations providing something for most tastes:

Radio Caroline from Great Britain, album rock with some new music, nearly all DJ presented, Pat Edison (ex-Radio Kaleidoscope) does a particularly good show. The downside is the app has a charge.

Pinguin Radio from the Netherlands, new Indie music with some oldie classics, mainly non-stop with no ads or chatter but great jingles, the shows are DJ curated and not the usual computer algorithm selections. There is an hourly ijsbreker which is the promoted track of the week chosen by listener votes on the twitter account @pinguinradio. There are some DJ presented shows at the weekend and coverage of local festivals. This station used to be KinkFM on Dutch cable radio, some of the founders have offshore connections. Their motto is "No Bullshit, Great Music" Unlike UK radio they also play songs with explicit lyrics which is refreshing.

Caroline Flashback is like the 1960's original station complete with the old jingles, DJ presented with a wider range of music than the usual "Gold" stations. The downside is the app has a charge.

Point Blank FM Broadcasting on 90.2MHz in London, very professional station with a good variety of formats, including DnB, Deep House, Funky House, Acid House, Tech House and much more.
