You’re no longer limited to just the small few good stations that are available in your area.Radio was invented back in the 1890’s by an array of genius madmen who thankfully would not stop until they figured the whole radio wave thing out. I won’t go into detail of how it works, because frankly…I don’t have a clue.
I do know however that since the 1920’s, when radio started to be used commercially in the United States, radio has become something that we basically can’t live without anymore. Just think of how often you actually listen to the radio and you’ll realize that basically you’re addicted to the radio without even realizing it. And you’re not alone; nearly everybody is the same way. Live radio stations playing in the background are a huge part of our lives.
Just think about, you listen to the radio for your music, your news, weather, and to know which route to take to work so you’re not sitting in grid lock. Your favorite live radio stations keep you sane while you’re driving around to and from work, while you’re at work, as well as when you’re at home cleaning. It’s nearly always.
The problem has been that while we rely on it so much to get us through the day, we’ve been limited to the very little choice that your normal radio broadcast has to offer. In fact, you’re very limited when you figure that you only get one or two stations (if you’re lucky) of what you like to listen to.
Now your choice has just broadened because now you can get live radio stations right through you computer. It’s quite incredible really. When you’re at home or work you just have to log onto the internet, and you are basically given the choice of listening to any radio station across the globe as long as they have a live streaming feed, which most broadcast stations do now.
So if you’re in Nebraska, and finding a Spanish station is nearly impossible, simply type into Google “Spanish Radio Station” and number of stations will pop up in the results and if they stream live, you can be listening to your favorite music within a couple of minutes. It’s incredible and you should be taking advantage of it ASAP!
Since radio became commercially used in the U.S. in the 1920’s, well as you can see it’s come quite far, almost so far that we can listen to it without…well…a radio. But also since then, we as a country, and as just as well, a world, have become basically addicted and dependent on our radios. Though you may not even realize how prevalent radio is in your life, if you take a second and think about it now, you probably listen to live radio stations more often than you realize.
We get our music, our news, our traffic, and our weather from our radio nearly constantly. You likely listen at home, in your car, at work, and even when you’re out and about say at the beach or a picnic, radio is nearly always there in the background.
Also, if you think back to significant moments in your life, such as your first kiss, your first date, singing along on trips with your parents and then your kids if you have them, this again shows how much exactly we link our lives to the radio. Whether you’ve thought about to this point or not, it’s clear that live radio has played a significant role in your life.
The fact is though, that even though it’s been good to you for all of these years, up until recently you’ve actually been very limited to what you can listen to on the radio. The reason for this is that there are only so many stations in your area available, and with that in recent years has come a lot of flip flopping owners of stations, and programming to where the dial is hardly even recognizable anymore.
That’s all changed now because with the internet, you have nearly limitless alternatives to the stations that you can choose from. This is because radio stations most often have live streams now, so that no matter what state or city you live in, you can go online, and get a live stream from any station around the globe that you want to, so that now instead of those one or two stations within your genre of music, there are thousands and thousands.
Not only that, there are actually a ton of free internet radio stations online where it’s not streamed from a regular broadcast channel, but through the internet itself, which sweetens the deal even more so because there’s usually a lot less commercial interruptions (if any) and the other annoying aspect, the chatting DJ’s, are gone as well.
If you haven’t yet taken advantage of this then it’s simple enough for you to go to Google and do a search for internet radio, or live radio stations online, and you’ll be given a tremendous choice of which you’ll likely never even be able to use a quarter of. Be thankful that in our new world, live radio stations are very easy to come by online giving you massive choice that you never had before.
Now however you have an amazing alternative, which unlike satellite radio, is actually free. You see, if you’re reading this it means that you’re online, which means that you have an internet connection, which means that you’re able to pick up live radio stations online. It’s a great alternative since you can now go online, and find your favorite genre of music on a radio station, and whether you live in Connecticut or California, you’ll be able to enjoy music that you like on radio stations all over the globe basically through a streaming broadcast.
The easiest way to find these radio stations is to simply do a search on Google for either “live radio stations” or something to that effect. As well, you can actually enter the type of radio station that you’re looking for, and it will pop up that way too.
Next time we’ll go into more detail about what’s out there for you as far as live radio stations go!
