Online radio is a convenient source of on-the-go music. With recent technological developments, radio stations have been able to create applications that allow the listener to follow the broadcast from any location where they have signal or internet connection. What makes this particularly convenient is that it eliminates the need to fiddle with a radio tuner to find a good signal or to have to find new stations as you travel around the country. Online radio is also a free and legal way to listen to music right at home from your computer.
Up-and-coming online radio websites offer a selection of playlists, from country music to hip-hop and R&B, from classical to era music, which provides a quick route to finding the exact type of music you are interested in listening to. Typically these websites will often offer an application so you can seamlessly transfer between computer and phone without missing a song. They also provide the listener an opportunity to hear songs that might not as often appear on mainstream radio, such as songs from lesser popular genres.
Ranging from the top 40 songs in the country to Christian music, to anywhere in between, free online radio stations allow people to listen to whatever type of music they like in a convenient, free, and legal manner. And since the radio is available 24/7, it liberates listeners of the less popular genres from having to tune in to a specific station, at a specific time, to hear their favorite songs.
