    Thumbs up Internet Radio - Screamer Radio

    I was browsing SKYFM, after running across someone palying the SkyFM SmoothJazz stream in There the other day, and found mention of Screamer Radio in the SKYFM forums.

    Pretty slick little app. Many presets covering many genres. Freeware.
    The AAC format streams, as streamed from SKYFM, sound better to me than the WMP stream. And don't cut in/out like the mp3 128k stream.

    After adding a Favorite, you have to use Edit Fav command on the file menu to enter the name of the fav manually in the .xlm file. Then reload favs on the File menu.


    From the Screamer Web Site:

    Major Features
    Freeware
    Simple to handle
    Not bloated!
    Recording of streams
    Minor Features
    Unobtrusive (easy to hide)
    Cool Peakmeter
    Can use multiple soundcards
    Auto updating presets, straight from the directory
    Playback Features
    Shoutcast and Icecast MP3 Streaming
    Icecast OGG Vorbis Streaming
    WMA Streaming
    AAC Streaming
    Recording Features
    Recording buffer: start recording in the middle and still save the entire song!
    Direct MP3 Audio stream saving, no loss of quality!
    Direct OGG Vorbis stream saving, no loss of quality!
    Or encode OGG Vorbis as MP3 using Lame
    Encode WMA or AAC to MP3 using Lame

    Not for Mac or Linux. I think I'll stick with ShoutCast.

    I'm almost reluctant to share this since I'm afraid they will become too popular and start charging, but who better to tell than my CPF friends .

    I've just discovered pandora.com and it is sweet (sorry if you already know about it, it's new to me). All you do is go to the site and enter an artist or song and they will stream a custom playlist of analyzed songs that are stylistically similar to what you chose. You can approve or dissaprove of the songs as you listen to them and the list will get even more specific. Its like having a custom dj and its completely FREE. A very cool idea- I'm addicted.

    I like it, thanks. I wish there was a "last played" button to jump back without having to run through a few menus to get there. Shoutcast, is that the one played trough Winamp?

    Edit: Love the "Lounge" station on the "Digitally Imported" network!

    I've downloaded it and I'm now enjoying 60's music. Works great. No annoying gaps of silence or commercials. Recommended. Thanks very much for the link!!!
