I just discovered that iHeartRadio has an app for Roku. I mentioned a while back on here (maybe a year ago) that I was looking for a Radio app, but there was nothing out there at all. Jumping in, this app is EVERYTHING I want out of it. First off and the most important is that is has Live Radio stations locally. So, all the radio stations that I listen to are there for me which is great. The great thing is that there are over 1500 Live Stations to choose from so I will be able to add a few from the LA market that I listen to. So, guys, give me your favorite stations that you listen to locally so that I can see if the app has them so I can add them to my Fave folder. Thanks.

The other thing that the app offers is in creating your own custom stations, just like you can with Pandora Radio. iHeartRadio just may in fact replace Pandora because it offers more and I won't have to jump between either one.

That is great news. I did listen to iheartradio back in the early days. Not sure why I stopped.

Anyway, the only one I listen (Through podcasts) is 97.1 Dave Glover show.

No music... Sorry

There isn't anything called 'Dave Glover Show' on the app, but there is a 97.1 in your market called FM News Talk. Is this one and the same?

Yes... that's the one.

It's a talk show that covers just about everything. They get incredibly silly to the very serious. That's what's great about the show. When they got serious with Ferguson, they took on all callers, brought in some African American's.

Then the next segment might be talking about their favorite TV show as a kid.

I love it. Dave is about mid 40's. They have Max and Tony who are younger (30's) and Mark who is early 60's, so you get all kinds of perspectives and they never hold back.

Note: The Dave Glover Show is hosted on 97.1 a very conservative politics station. Dave's show is defintely the odd man out, but he's the highest rated show (drive time) in the St. Louis area.

That being said, I don't think you'll hear much local talk specific to St. Louis. Dave could be living anywhere and you'll be able to relate to the discussions.

For the money, you should listen when Dr. Lynch comes on. Ho boy, this guy will make your head implode with discussions about paranormal, conspiracies, aliens, etc. Some people hate him, but he's pretty popular on there.

Okay, having spent a couple of days with iHeartRadio, there is one flaw with their playlist that is a bit much to overcome at the moment. It's not a deal breaker in keeping me from using it. I will definitely keep it just for the Live Radio Stations, which was my primary reason for adding the app to Roku. But when it comes to custom stations, Pandora Radiojust blows it out of the water right now. It offers a better mix of songs pertaining to whatever artist I have selected. iHeartRadio seems to be a bit diverse in their pool of songs and I find myself clicking through more songs than ones I actually listen to, which is wasting my time and counterproductive. With that said, iHeartRadio does have the edge on the fact they don't have commercials every 5 songs, which Pandora does have.  So, there ya have it.

CATalunia Boy's Choir

I saw this video maybe a couple of years ago. Not sure if I ever posted it here or not. Anyway, this is one funny video. The crowd reaction and the one kid trying to keep a straight face makes this a gut-busting laugh out loud 3 minutes. Prepare to be grinning from ear to ear should you watch this. What's even better is that they sound amazing.

No idea if there is any story behind it. Well, there is ALWAYS a story. Maybe they just wanted to do something fun for those in the audience.

Hope this is not a dumb question. Should I know Chilly?
Beyond the one I posted and this one, I never heard of him before.

I've never heard of him before either, but I'm not going to feel guilty about that-- how can you hear of someone before you hear about someone?

I think, for the most part, we discover artists at just the right time.  Hearing his concerts today was exactly what I was in the mood to hear today, so it was a good day to discover him.

Currently shopping on eBay looking to upgrade my CD collection with Remasters for the likes of KISS, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and The Beatles. Not buying every release but my faves from each one.

I heard lots of influence from Peter Gabriel and maybe some Bowie?

I rather liked that. I've never heard of them before.
