July 2nd, 2008
Video may have killed the radio star, but when the daily dose team is working for the weekend, we tune into the free international internet radio from our iMacs.
Here are our faves:
Sarah’s pick: Radio Netherlands International
This all-English station plays great documentaries, good Euro beats and offers a fresh perspective on North American news.
Miho’s pick: Play Classical UK
Where Bach meets Brits. Besides the whimsical music, the British accent is so pleasing to the ear we even enjoy listening to the advertising.
Maria’s pick: Comedy104
Straight from Topeka, Kansas (seriously!), this talk and stand-up comedy station features sets from legends like Bill Cosby and Dave Chappelle, occasionally breaking for CNN Radio news updates. Listener beware: some segments are racy and may require headphones.
Julie’s pick: Play Top 40 UK
Lighten up a never-ending afternoon with Top 40 from North American and Brit pop artists like the annoyingly infectious Girls Aloud and the dreamy Mark Ronson.
All stations are available for free via www.itunes.com
