    1. Radio Streams! I need more.

      I did a fresh install of Foobar2000 [1] for the first time since it came out. I'm rebuilding playlists and figured I'd do some digging for some new ones. My old list had a bunch from somafm, Luxuria, the BBC ones, and a few others. Here's a list of some ones I dug up tonight. If you have any other good ones that are indie, hip hop, jazz, exotica, or really well-curated EDM, list 'em up! Bonus points for direct links to the stream.

      [1] my foobar2000 setup with a custom W10 high contrast theme

      With the default interface, foobar2000 has some ugly white panels like this. I could patch uxtheme.dll, but its a pain if you forget to restore it before an update kicks in. To get around this, I made my own high contrast Dracula theme, which looks kind of like a UI you'd see on TV.

      This system only runs Kodi and Foobar2000. I would recommend this route for anyone who actually wants to use the system due to high contrast themes taking over the entire color scheme for everything.

    2. What are your favourite radio stations?

      This is just to kick start what I expect will be a very, very, small (if any) conversation to share our favourite radio stations. I personally still love listening to radio stations, mainly as...

      This is just to kick start what I expect will be a very, very, small (if any) conversation to share our favourite radio stations.

      I personally still love listening to radio stations, mainly as it's an easy way to find new music from people who understand the genre typically more in depth and more refined taste than myself.

      One of my personal favourites is La Jazz Radio by France Musique, no ads, and all types of mostly new and strange jazz from around the world (but mostly, of course France) with a little bit of some old ones thrown in. Their other stations are also equally very good,

      What are some you would suggest?

    3. What are your favorite community radio stations?

      I'm a big fan of community radio, freeform if I'm being picky. I'm curious... Which stations are my fellow Tilderinos listening to? (I'm particularly interested in non-English speaking stations)...

      I'm a big fan of community radio, freeform if I'm being picky. I'm curious...

      1. Which stations are my fellow Tilderinos listening to? (I'm particularly interested in non-English speaking stations)
      2. How are you listening?
      3. More generally, are people even listening to much radio any more? If not, why is that?

      To get things started, my own answers are.

      1. WFMU, dublab, Resonance FM, rrr.
      2. Generally I set up an alias per station with fish shell and stream each link via cvlc
      3. As I'm posting I guess it's obvious but yes, I listen to the radio almost daily. It's a nice break to have one less thing to make a decision about (what to listen to) while avoiding having to listen to top 40 and discovering all sorts of new music I'd otherwise likely miss out on.
