RadioRocker2.0.5

17 September 2009

Listen to over 5,000 radio stations from the USA.

Overview

RadioRocker is the simple way to listen to terrestrial radio on your Mac. This isn\'t a streamer for Internet radio, RadioRocker contains over 5,000 stations from across the United States. Choose what state and choose the station and you\'re off and running.

RadioRocker is perfect if you want to listen to a sporting event in another state or town. For instance: if you\'re from Massachusetts and you miss listening to WBZ NewsRadio 1030 for all your news, simply pull up the list for Massachusetts, double-click on WBZ. All of a sudden you\'re listening to WBZ right on your Mac.

Want to listen to a game in Pittsburgh? Select Pennsylvania as the state and choose your favorite station. Like the mix of a station in California, but you live in Virginia, select California as the state and choose the station.

Want to go to the stations website and check out any promotions or learn more about the disc jockeys or anything. Simply click the globe next to the digital readout and you\'ll instantly go to that stations website.

Presets, just like in your car radio... You can assign presets of your favorite stations to the 6 preset buttons in the player window. Click \"Manage Preset Buttons\" in the \"File\" menu or use Command+P. Choose which button you want to assign to the song currently playing. Instantly the preset will be set and you can customize the name of the button. Next time you launch RadioRocker just click your preset button, just like on your car stereo and you\'ll be listening to the station you like instantly.

This is a GREAT application and well worth the money! I especially like the way it does the recording of the station selected. Excellent in every way!

The Codec request thing has been fixed on the new version.The fill cache thing though goes on and on.Great that this is now freeware.The Devealoper did his best with this app and has tried hard to please his registered users.

CODECS anyone????? The darn thing keeps asking to install additional codecs no matter how often you have previously installed them. This could drive you bananas!!!

Sorry, but this app has been worthless since being upgraded to version 2.x. I just did a clean install of Snow Leopard and it still gives the "Filling cache..." message and never connects to a station. The author is completely unresponsive. At this point I'd just like my money back.

Still does the "Filling cache..." thing forever. The player never starts. I guess it's time to cut my losses and move on.

I've updated RadioRocker to 2.0.1 and recompiiled the engine as a universal binary. Make sure you also install the additional codecs in the Help menu. This enables the streaming engine.

Doesn't work for me on a G5 DP 2GHz running OS X 10.5.7. I get a "Loading ... Filling Cache" message forever for every station I try. Good thing I didn't pay the $10 for this.

Tried out 2.0, first time I've checked out this app... first annoying thing: radio stations are only organized by State, and you can't fine tune that list further (by city or region). Second annoying thing: you can't sort the stations, be it by frequency or call name. Third annoying thing: when I went to play a station (any station), all I get is "RRMplayer unexpectedly quit." Hmm..

Shoves four "LED" fonts in the main Library/Fonts folder -- you do not have the option of placing them in your own Users/Library/Fonts folder. After choosing a state you get to see all available radio stations in the primary window. However you CANNOT SORT the various columns! (Codec, Station, Frequency, City, and Genre.) This is a silly omission. Some stations refused to play -- just no audio at all. I did not test a whole lot of stations.

defaults write com.whimsplucky.RadioRocker register -string "1" Might want to fix that, and put a real scheme in there. Also, thanks for the lulz.

I haven't tried this. I currently use this, which is free and has been satisfying: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/19609/aol-radio

In one place on this screen you say "completey free" and then you charge money? For a buggy as can be app? That is clearly in it's earliest stages? Perhaps the issues are beyond the developers' control. Whatever. Did they not try the app themselves? Are seriously expected to believe they have sufficient success to warrant this version (1.2.2) to be considered a full, ready for prime-time release.? I sure do hope they get it sorted. Specific issues, in no particular order: too many stations do not connect (may have to do workaround of actually hitting play button), no installer, data in stations window not sortable, trial is one hour (one time), payment required at this early stage of development.

Keep working on it guys, you've got a long way to go. First of all, you can't change the view-by of each column. If you don't know the call letters of the station, you've got to search through the non-alphabetical list of city, genre, etc. Then, when you finally find the one you want, it won't even play! What a wast of time.

I'm directing this here as I can't find a contact for feedback on the Developers website. This looks promising. I'm willing to be patient as the Developer works through issues. However, after trying the program with spotty, off and on performance my "1 hour trial" is up. I won't buy something that doesn't work very well, but would also like to keep checking up on it. The Developer might want to rethink his 1 hour limit on this work in progress.

I wanted to give an update on the progress of the streams. At release time there all the stations forked in one way or another, and with an update I did correct for some stations and how they did their streaming. Currently Some stations have either stopped streaming at those addresses or changed they way they stream. I have not heard from any stations directly on this. However, in an effort to make the streams work I have been running back through the database to find the affected stations. Also it has come to my attention that some streams don't work either because the version of Flip4Mac is out of date or Perian is not installed or times out. In some cases having the install of Microsoft Silverlight seems to help the issue. Every radio station is different and compensating for all of them is time consuming and very difficult. I want to make this program the best terrestrial radio streaming program I can. With the inclusion of being able to add custom streams this opens it up to internet radio as well. I ask for your patience while I work to correct the database. Individual database updates will be available at http://www.whimsplucky.com/Whimsplucky/RadioRocker.html

"This isn't a streamer for internet radio" But it _is_ a shell for the internet streams of land-based radio stations, right?

This software doesn't work. I installed it. Started it and it immediately hangs with two dead dialogs on the screen. One that prompts for som installs and a trial nag screen. Neither responds. Force Quit is the only way out. Trash can next. /Mikael
