Ever listen to Internet Radio?
Moving back to Denmark from Germany in 2001 I really missed listening to SWR1. Great music, commentary and Verkehrsmeldungen (Stau, Stau, Stau). One evening I did a little surfing on the net and there it was! SWR1 to be streamed directly to my speakers in Hillerød, Denmark. Since then I have been a mega consumer of Internet radio.
Some time ago I came across the Atlantic Sound Factory and this is now my favourite station. By making a small monthly donation you get CD-quality sound through your media player of choice (Sonos) without any commercial interference.
If you like mainstream R&R, blended with some classic oldies and some new stuff, ASF is a superb choice.
The Atlantic Sound Factory sends from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA and as I write this post 1.400 computers are tuned in to the station.
