Digitally Imported station URLs

June 6, 2013 3 comments

Problem
You want to listen to Digitally Imported radio channels from command line for instance. For this you need the URL of the stations but it’s somewhat hidden on the web interface.

Solution
There is a public list of stations at http://pub7.di.fm/. You can write pub1, pub2, …, pub7 in this address.

I wrote a quick and dirty script that extracts station URLs (see the script here).

The output of the script is here (download the list here):

Did you have a Commodore 64 when you were a child? Do you miss those good old times? Then Slay Radio is for you!

SLAY Radio is an internet-based radio station, transmitting from Gothenburg (Göteborg) in Sweden and relaying to several other relays. Normally, it automatically plays from its internal playlist of Commodore 64 remixes that have mainly come from R:K:O [see A.1.2] and the commercial CDs at C64Audio.com [see A.1.3].” (from the FAQ)

Play Slay Radio from the Desktop

  • visit http://www.slayradio.org
  • right click on Broadband (top left corner), and save the file listen.m3u in your ~/Desktop folder
  • listen.m3u will appear on your desktop. Launch it with a double click.
  • To customize which application should open it: right click on listen.m3u, Properties, Open With tab, and select your favorite media player.

Listen to Last.fm

November 7, 2010 1 comment

There is a great Firefox add-on called Fire.fm that lets you listen to Last.fm from your browser.

For this you will have to create an account on Last.fm but it’s free. If you listen to Last.fm via their website, you can listen up to 30 songs for free, then you will have to pay a monthly fee. So I recommend using Fire.fm instead.
