Favorite internet radio streams

Hello everyone!°

Today I’m opening a new thread to see, who’s listening to webradios, and which streams may be your personal favorites. So, here I go.

  1. Radio Paradise:
    https://radioparadise.com
    Assorted Stream Links (incl. Flac with/without metadata) -
    https://radioparadise.com/listen/stream-links

My personal favorite is their World-Etc Mix. They also feature Main-, Mellow-, and Rock-Mix streams, all available in uncompressed Flac sound quality alongside other codec’s.
(I already posted a link to this site in another thread, ‘What are you listening to now?’ - But it is my all time favorite webradio, so excuse me on this one, please.)

  1. Afrika Radyo:
    https://afrikaradyo.com
    Streamlink -
    http://afrikaradyo.com:8000/listen.mp3

  2. SomaFM:
    https://somafm.com
    Assorted streamlinks are given on the main page,
    afaik, only mp3-128kb/s.

  3. Radio BluesFlac

    Streamlink -

  10. KEXP:
    Streamlinks -
    https://kexp-mp3-128.streamguys1.com/kexp128.mp3
    http://live-aacplus-64.kexp.org/kexp64.aac

Most are completely commercial-free, and some also feature apps for mobile on iOS/Android.
I include a playlist that can be easily opened in most any audio player you might use, should you want to give them a try…

These are the stations I listen quite often:

DI Radio Digital Impulse – Oldies but goldies
http://orion.shoutca.st:8248/stream

DI Radio Digital Impulse – Hard Rock & Heavy Metal
http://148.251.43.231:8165/stream

DI Radio Digital Impulse – Blues
http://148.251.43.231:8990/stream

Boot liquor – Americana, Roos music for Cowhands, Cowpokes and Cowtippers http://ice1.somafm.com/bootliquor-320-mp3

Radio Caroline 259 Gold - Live from Breskens - Holland
http://95.211.66.140:8253

Oh, I forgot to say that I rarely listen internet radios in web browser. I have a big folder of .pls and .m3u files and there I just pick a station I want to listen in my favourite music player Audacious.

Welcome to the forum!

SomaFM offers interesting stuff. SF Police Scanner - San Francisco Public Safety Scanner Feed is weirdest of them… :laughing:
