10.9 only? must be too difficult to maintain backward compatibility with the ancient year of 2011

Radium may have a cleaner look but myTuner is a much more complete app.

Really? REQUIRES 10.9? Come on! Not a nice way to treat those who choose to not use Mavericks, or cannot use it.

I hadn't noticed that it requires 10.9. No wonder it wouldn't work.
It still would be nice if the developer would respond to support questions. I emailed him asking why it wouldn't launch weeks ago and never heard back.

Great app, great support.

I am a previous Snowtape user but that app seems abandon ware. Snowtape has more features but Radium will do.

Also have a look at Radium for iOS

I have loved the program since its inception, and it has become my go-to radio app. I hated (*hated*) the move to the chocolate icon and am very glad to see the back of that. FB integration is great and the developers just keep making the program better. The iOS version is nothing short of awesome. Thanks, gang!

Ever since it's first version I have been using Radium. It seems they are in an identity crisis. It's initial icon was great and I still use it.
I never understood the change for the chocolate heart. It has nothing to do with internet radio. This new icon is nice, but I still wonder why they abandoned that cute yellow radio icon.

For those interested. I modified the original radio menubar icons for use with this new version (3.0.6) of Radium. Anyone interested can grab the resources here > http://cl.ly/3w1e0q3f1e3M (original files included in case you wanna switch back)

I tried repeatedly contacting the dev. But never heard back. This version (3.0.6) when downloaded still shows as 3.0.4 and when launched nothing happens.

Why is htis not compatible with Mountain Lion? I like the app but cannot upgrade because I cannot go to Mavericks for the unforeseeable future due to other application incompatibilities with Mavericks. So again, I have wasted cash on an app that is not upgradeable. Remember Radio Gaga. I bought that one too, and it no longer exists. Lesson: be careful what apps you purchase.

I found Radium quite counterintuitive to use. There was no easy way to get rid of the (PAY!) presets nor could I find a way to create a drop-down menu for my favourites.

Antenna, on the other hand, an Adobe AIR application, just works.

'Presets' simply have the heart-icon attached to them (which you see as you mouseover next to the station name). Un-click on the heart and the preset disappears. Pretty simple.

"an Adobe Air Application..." - have you every compared how many resources (CPU, Memory...) Antenna + Air needs to play a stream? Besides you need to install the Adobe Air bloatware with all it's security breaches? I have not tried antenna, but was extremly happy when I finally could deinstall Adobe Air after I got rid of the last app I had which needed it.

What's up with this chocolate stuff? I liked the previous radio icon. After all this software is about radio not about… chocolate.

Oh, well…

Hi!

Radium puts a small radio icon at the top right of your menu bar (where the clock, battery, AirPort are), through which the app is used.

You can email us at support@catpigstudios.com if it gives you trouble.

Thanks! =)

For the life of me I STILL cannot get Radium 2.3 to work with Audio Hijack Pro - despite CatPig's assurance that it is, indeed, possible to record Radium audio streams via Audio Hijack Pro. I have followed CatPig's instructions on here (i.e. to use "System" as the input) but it simply does NOT work. Radium itself works fine, but my Audio Hijack Pro CANNOT record it for me. Can anyone who has actually succeeded in getting these 2 applications to satisfactorily work together please inform me just how he/she did it ? I've tried everything I can possibly think of !! And CatPig, WHY is it that you stream your audio in a manner that is plainly NON-standard ? I have NO problems whatsoever in recording audio streams from other internet sources using Audio Hijack Pro.

By the way, we forgot to mention that Audio Hijack Pro (and others) work fine with Radium since version 2.3.x without having to choose "System Audio" as the input source. Happy listening =)

I wrote to Rogue Amoeba, which produces "Audio Hijack Pro", about my inability to record anything from "Radium".

It responded as follows:-

"It may be that Radium is using a nonstandard method of audio playback. One thing that might work is if you set Audio Hijack Pro to use MegaMix.

To do so, follow these steps:

1. Make sure that Audio Hijack Pro is not currently hijacking audio.

2. With Radium selected as the audio source in Audio Hijack Pro, go to the Input tab and click "Advanced"

3. Select "Hijack all audio streams (MegaMix) and click OK.

4. Try hijacking as before.

Let us know what happens."

I tried all that and STILL Audio Hijack Pro totally refuses to record anything at all from Radium. I have written back to Rogue Amoeba and am awaiting its firther suggestions.

But in the meantime, BE WARNED. Radium does NOT work with Audio Hijack Pro. Which is pretty strange given that EVERY other audio sorce I own works perfectly with it.
