What are you listening to online
I gave up XM a while back and have been streaming KERA the DFW NPR station ....what else is out there?

Looking for podcasts and streaming.....

I use Prime Music when I want to stream music. It's free, if you have an Amazon Prime account (or included in your paid Prime account, depending on how you look at it).

But most of the time, I listen to Audiobooks through Audible, or podcasts like Hardcore History.

I have Amazon Prime but I like listening to I Heart Radio.

They have actual radio programs that go over the air and they have genre or artist channels.

"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Since I drive quite a bit for work now, I have started listening to podcasts. Mike Drop, The Dan Bongino Show, The Way I Heard It With Mike Rowe are all good. I have listened to some true crime, but can't seem to get into those.

Big fan of YouTube here. I've got a good sound system hooked up to my computer and spend an hour or two a day listening to and watching (mostly classical) vids.

Tune-in has a channel called "The Very Best of Art Bell"

Kind of brings me back to the 90's.

I listen to SiriusXM, as I drive a lot of backroads where there is no cell signal.

I also listen to a few podcasts.

During the work day, it's iHeart Rush Limbaugh streaming from the local radio station. If I'm at home building rifles, it's iHeart again and I switch between Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke or 50's radio.

The only problem with an iHeart artist radio channel is that I find they don't have a large selection of random songs from the artist or genre. Its not very long before the same song comes back or the same artist. The actual 50's radio is different though and the net is pretty wide on that one.

Apple Music. It seems to have quite a large library, as I've not been able to stump it yet with a request for an artist. Play mainly over my Homepod, but also through iTunes when I'm at my desktop with headphones.

I have eclectic tastes. Here are the online sources of music for the type I like (ambient/techno/space):

Hearts of Space
MixCloud (offers any style of music)
Ambient Music Guide
Digitally Imported
Ultima Thule (podcast/live/download from Australia)

Many of these have been airing broadcasts for over thirty years! Several offer multiple channels for pretty much every form of music. When I listen to talk, I have live radio out the wazoo to choose from.

You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

I have a 200+ song list on Spotify that I stream on carplay to my F150 and to my Bose headphones while mowing my 3 acre lawn. I use Amazon Prime Music over my Alexa device to a set of outdoor speakers in my back yard.

Lots of ways to relax

I love Spotify Premium; 10 bucks a month and it's a CD quality sound and you can skip tracks and download to your smartphone to listen offline.

Just recently went back to Sirius XM.

wife has XM in her car, I no longer do

I use the dreaded Pandora on the laptop or phone, or Amazon, or youtube,

just depends on what I am doing or where I am at

Apple Music. In my recently played:

George Michael - Ladies and Gentleman (jazzy arrangements)
Southern Culture on the Skids - about 5 albums worth
Sendecki & Spiegel - Two in the Mirror
Peter Gabriel - Rated PG
Tedeschi Trucks Band - Signs
Apple Music - Funk Essentials (8hrs+)
America - Here and Now
America - Essentials
Bumpin the Mango - EP
Doobie Brothers - Essentials
Superheavy - Superheavy
Operation Mindcrime - all 3 albums (Geof Tate’s new band)
Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime
Extreme - Pornograffiti

My musical mood has wild swings. Apple Music handles it all so far.

I always prefer reality when I can figure out what it is.

Pandora here. Yeah, it's yesterday but I don't like change.

I've seeded a few channels and am happy with the music their algorithms seem to pick as similar to music that I like. Got some interesting picks based on "thumbing up" much of Mark Knopfler's work.

I’ve used Slacker, Spotify and iTunes for a long time. Slacker just changed to something called Live X Live. Occasionally I use Tidal.
