I found some new radio stations to listen to the other day. 🙂 📻️🎶
Well, it’s official now: all BBC radio stations (and most likely all podcasts too) are gone from TuneIn Radio.
The BBC seem determined to silo all their radio content inside the BBC Sounds app.
If they take podcasts off of Overcast, I’ll be pissed off!
Sunday morning lie-in, iPad, TuneIn Radio, Reeder, Micro.blog.
Life is good.
Every time our DAB radio downstairs splutters, I give thanks for my iPad Mini and TuneIn Radio app. Even the radio stations have stopped pushing DAB. Maybe both government and industry will get a clue and let radio spectrum be a commons again? Not likely, but one can hope.
Found this article on Slate the other day. It turns out that the ‘panic’ was actually minimal, but was talked up by the newspapers at the time as a way of discrediting the ‘upstart’ medium of radio, which was taking advertising revenue from them.
