Friday Faves - TuneIn Radio

Do you love radio?  I always have.  I remember listening to the radio constantly as a young girl, while riding my bike, rollerskating, and lying in bed at night.

I have found a really fun, free app for iPad, tablet, phone, or computer called TuneIn Radio.  It lets you choose your favorite radio by location, by music style, by talk topics, and more.  You can save your favorites and then listen to them anytime.  I have this app installed on my iPad and Blackberry, and I really, really enjoy it.  It is so relaxing to listen to at the end of a long day.  I love browsing oldies by decades (especially my favorites, 60's and 70's).  I also have installed my favorite local jazz station, WCLK.  For some reason I am not able to pick up this station in my house (although I get it fine in my car - go figure!), so it is a treat to be able to listen on phone or tablet.

A head's up about this app -- it uses data minutes like crazy, so be sure you are logged in via a wireless connection.

I hope you enjoy TuneIn as much as I do.  You can find it on iTunes, Google Play, Blackberry World, or computer.  Have fun!
