Just was wondering if people on the forum have a few suggestions of internet radio stations to listen to.
I am interested in anything from experimental, electronic to world music or jazz.
At the same time I quite like the idea of listening to local stations located somewhere in world in general, so any colourful local station with music and/or talk (in English or German) or any particular programs which are worth tuning in please let me know !
Here in London is Resonance FM from the London Musicians' Collective (online at http://www.resonancefm.com). Worth checking out I reckon, although can be a bit mad at times

Streaming mp3 link is IN the iTunes radio 'eclectic' category. Also accessible via the website, of course, and other players are supported (but you ARE using iTunes aren't you?...)
There is also a station on iTunes radio which plays nothing but Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Albert Ayler, Eric Dolphy, Sun Ra, John Coltrane etc.
It's called DI.fm Modern Jazz http://www.di.fm/jazz/
In iTunes Radio it's under 'Jazz', natch...it's a good'n.
Thanks! Hober definintely caught my attention right away - seems like a great mix of stuff .
PS: Never had real problems with real player 'must say but sure iTunes is a better player.
Not to forget Onkyodo at 104.4 Resonance FM every Tuesday night from 8 pm to 9. We play what-ever music related to Japan. It started (hence the name) as a program on underground Japanese music. We are 5 presenters and Alan Cummings, Biba Kopf, Kamura are the underground experts while clive Bell and I (both shakuhachi players) are into both underground, classical, pop, folk etc. I seem to be the Japan diaspora music person there.
Our totally out of date webpage is: http://www.onkyodo.co.uk/
Neither Kamura nor myself are on it yet... oh well! One of these things!
I like WGDR a lot, especially Jen Isaacs very eclectic show on alternate Sundays.
Also, if you're not familiar with them, the "roll your own playlist" sites like Pandora and especially last.fm are worth checking out.
Someone recently sent me this link to a 24 hour station that plays only shakuhachi.
You have to be a member to hear it. Let me know if it works
