    this is hilarious. It's a shame they want me to login with twitter and stuff to chat, though. I miss this aesthetic.

      Yeah, this is awesome. The "Poooooolsiiiiiiide" boot up sound got a chuckle out of me, and the random 80s videos that play along with the music are nostalgia inducing and wonderfully cheesy/funny as well. The music itself is pretty decent so far too... I even got a Vulfpeck remix to start (Backpocket - Discorazor Remix), which is always a good sign.

        so catchy. More and more I find myself listening to stuff like this. It's just so... happy.

          Yeah, that's a great remix; Super upbeat. As was most of the music in the default Poolside FM channel that I listened to. Even the other channels on this site are great too. I've been digging "Friday Night Nite Heat" playlist as well, and discovered quite a few new tracks on there that I liked enough to find on Youtube and add to my playlists. E.g. Cut Slack - Closer

          p.s. The original version of Backpocket is pretty great too BTW, and the video always makes me smile. :)

            is the Friday Night Heat playlist on Spotify?

              Dunno about Spotify, but all the channels appear to have soundcloud playlists associated with them: https://soundcloud.com/poolsidefm/sets Including Friday Nite Heat:...

    The classic MacOS-themed site is fun, but if you want to listen on the go they're also on SoundCloud.

    Poolside FM was conceived one awfully rainy summer in the Highlands of Scotland - a virtual vacation, if you will. The audio and video streams are curated to inject a healthy dose of serotonin into your brain.

    The classic MacOS-themed site is fun, but if you want to listen on the go they're also on SoundCloud.

    They now have a PalmPilot-throwback iOS app, if anyone’s interested! Android version coming as well.

    If Estrelar isn't there, it's not worth a damn as an 80's Miami radio station.
