Nah it's through the web, all you need is a browser with flash. :)

It's too bad spotify is not available in the US, they offer 320k streaming which is pretty cool. :)

Just got word that medici.tv is streaming (free) the October 7 opening night concert of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, with Gustavo Dudamel and tenor Juan Diego Flórez. 

And until Dec. 17, they're continuing streaming Dudamel's concert with the Vienna Philharmonic that closed the Lucerne Festival in September.  The program is Rossini, Ravel, Bernstein and Orbón--the same program I heard here in October, and it was a fantastic concert.

Have you seen http://www.iheartradio.com?  It streams radio stations from around the country. I haven't looked for classical on it.  My wife uses it to listen to stations in SoCal.

Anyone here listen to their radio through ipod touch/iphone and know any good apps?  I've tried the mainstream: pandora, last.fm, aol etc but they don't do classical well.  Unless you consider classical works individual movements played like you took your whole collection and put it on random play.  Some stations have apps, but I might end up installing alot until I find a good one.  Anyone already been down that road?

Doesn't seem to have classical but thanks.

Hey you live just a hundred miles from me!  Cool. :)

Here in the UK, I subscribe to SKY television, the biggest subscription broadcaster you can get.  I browse through the included channels and find only TWO Classical channels.  Just 2.  But if by some miracle of the stars I decide to listen to 'ethnic' music instead, serious cross referencing multiple choice becomes a key factor.   >:(

Europe is festooned with broadcasting Classical channels, my favourite and the most generous being Radio 4 from Holland.  Here in the UK we hear nothing of Europe, not even Radio 4.  We are kept bereft from the roots of Germanic and European Classical Music by being given two British channels, one which lost its way when it started getting bigger on 'World Music' and the other only good for the likes of Rossini Overtures.  And that even from SKY, the premiere subscription outfit.  It is disasterous.   >:(

Thanks. I actually miss the mixed programming of radio stations; I should get back to it. In fact, the closest I come to seeing something like that these days are your posts in the listening thread. :)

I don't listen to music on the radio very often, but when it happens, I usually listen to BR-Klassik or BBC Radio3; they broadcast lots of wonderful concerts and musical events, like the Bayreuth Festival, Jansons' concerts with the BRSO, and the BBC Proms.

I can only listen to the stations you mentioned over my internet tuner.  How do you receive those broadcasts?

I look for the broadcasts on the websites of BBC Radio 3 and BR-Klassik.

So you listen to these broadcasts off your computer.  Not sure if it was a software issue or bandwidth issue, my past experience with listening off internet website for some classical broadcast was not so great as the streaming did not work well.  For some reasons, my internet tuner does not have the same problem.

I'm very excited about Winnipeg's new Classical & Jazz Music FM radio station, launching December 5th.

There is quite a following of classical and jazz music lovers here, so I'm thinking it will do well.  :)

At least, it will provide an alternative to a dozen stations playing whoever sings "This shit's bananas".  ::)  :D

 An interesting program for collectors is The Collector's Vault, found at  www.gmmy.com/tenors    This is the Golden Music Memories of Yesteryear site. This show has a lot of extreme rarities. It's at noon during the week, as well as 4 p.m., and 11 a.m. on Sundays. This is central time.

The radio station that helped me "discover" classical music is WCPE in NC. I listen over the web using Foobar on my desktop PC. I still love that station. theclassicalstation.org

Radio Swiss Classic in Berne, Switzerland is my favorite station. They stream music 24/7 with very little interruption. They also have Radio Swiss Jazz. I think the station is state owned. You have your choice to listen in either French, German, Italian, or English. Not a day goes by without me listening to this station, especially when browsing the Internet.

Ah!  Then you probably have heard me once or twice on there.   :)
(Bruckner's) is the career of a poor village boy ... The one and only really surprising thing about him was that after completing his career as an organist he suddenly began to compose music with a range of vision which in such a man would appear quite incongruous.
