Favourite Internet Radio Stations
August 2nd, 2005
For me, Live 365 is one of the best sites on the Internet. I don’t really follow mainstream music and the bands I mostly enjoy listening are not always easy to discover and find. With Live 365 this task is much easier. For example, I enter an artists name and a list of stations that play his/her music gets listed. For those of you who don’t know, Live 365 is a huge collection of amateur and professional radio stations that broadcast over the net. It’s cool because broadcasters are located all over the world and literally all music genres are covered. I like the fact that people run their stations from their rooms using their personal music collections (of course, some stations are more professional than that). There’s something new to discover every day.
Anyway, today I wanted to add a list of my “Presets” (favourites) to the sidebar of my blog and was surprised that there is no RSS option available on Live 365, which is strange knowing that they offer podcasts. What I wanted was an RSS feed for my presets so I could distribute the link to my friends and let them know what new stations I’ve discovered lately. In the absence of an elegant way to perform this, I’ve manually added the list of my favourite internet radio stations to the sidebar of my blog. Take a look, you might like some of it!
If you’ve found a way to perform something similar automatically, please let me know.
