This program is abslutely excellent. A must-have, especially if you are an expat like me. It's amazingly functional, compact and user-friendly. There should be a Steam for all radios!

Just gets better... all it needs now is an AppleScript to tell WireTap to open and start to record.

Anyone?

been using this for a quite a while now and what a superb piece of software it is. without a doubt the BBC is the world finest radio station and this is a great way to access it. although the BBC radio player is a good way to access, I much prefer using this app.

every mac user that likes their radio should have this app installed. Also, as the BBC moves to shift content and older archives online I can see this program being a great way to access those also.

three cheers.

This app is a real gem, and it's free to boot. What more could one ask?

Brilliant app. Allows me get the most out of internet radio without having to bookmark various BBC sites/streams or check my watch to see when a programme is due to start. I can't even suggest any more features: everything a listener needs is here.

Great idea to collect the BBC radio schedules and place them in a customizable window. One important stream was missed: the World Service has two primary 24-hour english language streams: the "InfoEnt" and "live-news" versions. The "World" selection in this app chooses "InfoEnt." Would be nice to see both - or perhaps some way for the user to customize...
I doubt I'm the only American whose primary source for *domestic* broadcast news has become the BBC. But the addiction started 30 years ago.... now if we could get John Tusa back....
