When's the last time these folks updated their desktop app? Seems kind of nasty to keep selling a product you've abandoned. More and more stations don't work, and developer is completely unresponsive. They used to be helpful. . . .

Best radio app for Mac.. Only 4 stars because streaming over AirPortExpress only practical, if you do not use build-in or directly connected speakers simultaneously. You will get an unacceptable delay over the AirPortExpress connected speakers. Airfoil ( https://goo.gl/tR5oVR ) instead of Radiums own streaming feature transfers the sound perfectly in sync.

Is this now abandonware? After releasing this crazy version with the new dysfunctional interface, it doesn't look like the developers have communicated with the outside world about Radium since about December 2015 and the most recent update of the app was a full year ago (August 2015). For the moment, the previous version with the original interface still works, (thank goodness Time Machine allowed me to restore it) but I dread the moment when it no longer does, and would love an update that restores its functionality.

The previous version (v2) was a great, minimal menubar app – the current version (v3) is just an annoying, floating window with a menubar icon! The frustrating GUI is a tiny, unresizable pop-up window which needs to be closed manually. Horrible UI/UX, Just sad.

I don't like to diss this developer who has over the years been extremely responsive and conscientious. But this new interface is really annoying, almost enough to make me look elsewhere. Having it in the menubar is great, but why the separate floating window and, most important, why design it so that the window pops up unbidden and randomly. Gotta stop what I'm doing and close it. Have no idea what triggers it to appear but have to believe it's a programming flaw, and so far the developer has been unwilling to either acknowledge or fix it. And that's a bad sign.

If there is such thing as a tragedy in the world of software, this is it. Version 2 was wonderful: an unobtrusive menubar icon that, when clicked, brought down a helpful list of radio stations that you'd tagged as favorites, and could provide lists of its own when you search by categories. The list was unobtrusive and instantly dismissable with the escape key. When you picked a station, you had a full set of standard controls to start and stop play, and a nice buffering system that allowed you to stop for a while and resume where you left off, if you wished. For reasons completely unknown and non-obvious, version 3 replaced the menu bar app with a floating window app that can only be dismissed with a mouse click and a new set of controls missing functions such as a volume control. It's not the end of the world, but what on earth were the developers thinking? They replaced a beautiful, usable concept with a clunky, inconvenient one for no obvious reason whatsoever. Really sad. For shame!

Actually this radio works in Mavericks ( 10.9.5 ). Support is fantastic. I was unable to find a local radio station and support provided me the URL. The price is not that bad albeit it could be about half that asking price. I found that i was unable to create a playlist other then using favorites. The in prgramme help file did not answer my problem and i am somewhat tired of always asking about this or that since the web site is also rather limited. Never the less for my purposes this "radio" works as long as i start up my computer.

I love the app but it's been broken for me for the past couple months. The developer took 2 weeks to confirm it's broken with all stations that are I Heart Radio based. Since that is all I use the app for it's effectively a brick for me at the moment. The developer gave me no indication as to when or even if this problem will be fixed...

I still enjoy using the old Radium 2.8.4 under Mavericks 10.9.2. This developer offers good support, but I believe they have abandoned the Lion and Mountain Lion platforms too soon. I wish they would still sell the old version (license) outside of the MAS.

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.

My favorite new feature is the ability to pause the stream for up to an hour and then pick up right where you left off. If you press the option key the pause control becomes a stop button so you're not using bandwidth for no good reason. I asked for a particular station from a state that doesn't go on DST because sometimes I forget when it starts. They added it within a few days (unusually long for their great customer support). Now if I forget about my program, I can catch it from the beginning since it comes on an hour later in Arizona.

When v3 first came out I was a bit taken aback by the new look. It seemed like it was less capable and I was also a little confused by the changes to the controls. And there were some bugs... When v3.0.1 came out I decided to take another look - after all Catpig Studios has consistently delivered a good product. So I took some time, played with the new version, and discovered it was actually easier to use and better looking than v2. So I upgraded. Catpig's support is good, too. I couldn't find a local station I liked so I wrote them asking if they could add it. In short order I received an email telling me what to search for to listen to that station. I searched and now have my local station as a favorite! I'm very pleased. Bottom line: Radium is a handy little (Internet) radio that's easily accessible from the menu bar, and v3 makes it even better. John

I like this the best for the Menubar. It's just right. I've tried a lot of the radio apps like snowtape. This was the easiest to configure and had the best features for this type of application. The developer was VERY helpful loading the station I like to listen too which is very pesky to find and load the url. I'd buy this one any day.

I just bought this through the latest MacHeist bundle. Very nice app and works great. I contacted the developer with a problem I was having with a stream and they got back to me in less than an hour. It turns out that the stream has now changed and the problem is solved another way, but the attention was startling! This app has helped me convert a huge mess of streaming URLs and apps into one simple app. Handles paid subscriptions. Gets all the usual stations plus many that I had never heard of

I took a free trial of Radium and was thoroughly impressed with it all round. But at the end of the trial I just could not believe the cost of the app. How are normal people supposed to be able to pay £17 for such a simple app?? My only other suggests are to change the Icon, and to include a recording feature. Great app, but get the price down for us please!!

I'd be lost without Radium - it keeps me company during the day while I slave over my computer... ;-) It's working fine under Mountain Lion. My registration didn't work at first, but thanks to a quick response from CatPig Studios I'm all set again! Radium is so easy to use and does exactly what I want. I can quickly select the station I want from my favorites, adjust the volume, and even set equalizer settings for the type of music or voice I'm listening too. And it lives in the menubar (on the right) for quick and easy access. Also there's no cruft - all the essentials but no fat. Great app and highly recommended! John

Radium continues to be one of my most-used utilities and I find it invaluable for listening to internet radio - it is hard to see how it could be improved in a functional sense. One thing that seems to have improved recently is its ability to recover from interrupted streams - if a stream is interrupted it stops playing when the buffer is exhausted but then as soon as the stream is accessible again it now fades back in, whereas in the past it would never restart. The only feature I would like to see now (that I can think of) is the ability to change its position in the menu bar. Because of its ability to display the artist and track name the most suitable position (imho) is to be the furthest menu item to the left, but I have not found any way of ensuring this. All Apple menu items can be moved by holding down the command key while dragging them, but this doesn't work with Radium. It doesn't seem to be anything to do with launch order as the order of the items is not in any way related to their order in my login items list, and they are not alphabetical either, so I don't know how they end up in the order they do. Whatever the answer to this, it would be great if Radium could add a "Force leftmost position in menubar items" or similar option to its preferences.
alas!

I, belatedly, became aware of something a bit troubling about Radium. While Radium uses streams from iTunes, its streams are plagued with commercial interruptions. Most of the same streams on iTunes are entirely commercial and interruption free. Apparently, Radium adds commercials to the streams and then charges for a subscription for commercial free listening. Anyway, Radium is, no doubt, financially tied in to Live-95, the subscription driven commercial free service, at $71 per year. While Radium is a handy little gadget, I have to ask myself whether it's worth the ad infinitum subscription price, especially when the same streams are available free of charge on iTunes. And at this point, I have to say no. When my current live-95 subscription expires soon, I'll likely not continue with it. I really have no issue with utilizing iTunes directly for my listening needs.

I'm on my Mac for many hours throughout the day and night working on various projects and Radium is a godsend. Gotta have my music to keep me centered and sane( I'm an electronica, trance, ambient sound hound) and Radium delivers beautifully. It's all easily available via a menu bar drop down menu. One issue really pisses me off, though. Most, if not all, genres are pummeled by an almost continuous barrage of commercial interruptions which makes for a totally hellish listening experience. A "Live 65" VIP subscription is required for commercial free listening, at $41.70 for 6 months or $71.400 for a year. Of course that makes Radium a more costly proposition, but without the additional subscription what's the point?.... unless one is a sucker for punishment(think psychological torture). Be that as it may, Radium does put a smile on my face and makes my world a more pleasant place.

A brilliant little app, works very well. I especially like that it is possible to control it with the media keys on the Apple keyboard as it makes it so easy to stop the player when answering the phone. One thing I would like to see added to make it a 5 star app would be the option to select audio output device as I would like to listen to the radio via the optical out but leave all the system sounds set to play through speakers on my monitor via display port. BTW, I wish software developers would stop tagging their demo's as shareware.

I can only agree with the other high ratings. The best radio player App. Nice hot key functions and most reliable. Support is second to none and the most positively responsive I think I've ever experienced. Add in the bonus low price. Excellent software and support. Highly recommended.

I use this app daily. It is very, very simple to use. Now, I have about a dozen musical genres dialed in, with some news and sports stations from various places I live or have lived thrown in, all set as favorites; any time I'm in a certain mood, there's a radio station that will fill the bill available from my menu bar. This is definitely one of my Top 5 apps.

-- Why in the world is the price $24.95 at the developer's site yet it is priced at $9.99 at the CrapAppStore? I applaud the fact that this app can be purchased directly from the developer, but why the extreme price difference? I choose to NOT shop at the CrapAppStore (there are legitimate reasons.) Developers who abandon selling software from their own home pages and hand over the sales exclusively to Apple should re-evaluate doing so. Just google "Why the Mac App Store Sucks" to get a taste of the issues and drawbacks.

Can't say enough about this app! Took me only a few minutes to decide to buy a year ago Right now I think it is again special cheap. Great great support and the upgrades in the past year have been fantastic. I don't know about Sirius etc, but for radio streams this things is a must-have! Thanks Catpig!

What a truly great little product Radium is. It's one of those utilities that does what it does to perfection - and with great elegance. Adding both AirPlay support and an equalizer have added the icing on the cake.

In my view Radium is the top choice if you need an OS X radio player (as opposed to recorder). It is an extremely unobtrusive yet easy to use menu bar player with a powerful station search and easily accessible favourites. The last update has improved its usability even further and adds some cool features like AirPlay streaming, a song history that helps to remember the gems you discovered and an equalizer that really helps to improve some stations' sound quality. Radio stations I suggested / requested were added by the devs within 24h - they're very responsive and friendly, btw.

Yes, I love Radium too, use it every day and thank the developers for it. I have it tuned to 'Sensual World' as I write this. May I offer some advice to save you the trouble of contacting the devs... In earlier versions, there was a button to toggle between your saved favourites and the full list of available stations. Upon opening the latest version, 2.7, I couldn't find it anywhere and wrote to the devs to ask where it was hiding. They replied- within the hour- as follows: "Radium shows your favourites by default now, and entering a search query shows matching favourites first, followed by matching non-favourites. The reason is that Radium now has too many channels to scroll through (without having entered a search query), so we no longer display "all channels" for the same reason Google doesn't display "all websites" before you enter a search. You can still search for stuff as before, using pretty general keywords like "jazz", "french talk", "xm 81", etc." So now you know. There are indeed zillions of available stations but you can also drag your faves from iTunes Radio onto Radium for quick access to those too. Wonderful.

I own Radio Gaga, Radioshift and Radium. Each of them has its own special features and reasons for buying, but for daily simple ease-of-use (for the stations I listen to most, without wanting to record) I've ended up using Radium as my basic go-to choice. To my ears, the sound quality is equal to that of its rivals and connections have always been made quickly and easily. Installation was simple. In my one contact with their support people -- when I requested the addition of a station -- the response was quick with the station being added within two days -- on the Monday following my Saturday e-mail.

Avoid Radium. 1. CatPigStudios do not reply to support tickets sent in from their contact form. 2. Their licensing scheme forces you to relicense the software every time you use it (if you use a portable drive from Macs as I do). I've had no issues with Radio Gaga. While Radio Gaga could use a better looking interface (some people might like the dark interface), at least it works reliably. Sound quality seems better to me with Radio Gaga.

Just the best, beautifully small in size, but big in performance. While I have lots of bedside and internet radios through out my house, it is nice to use Radium, when I am up early in the morning, checking email, paying bills, etc. Also, support is very responsive, and kind. Just a reasonably priced piece of software, with lifetime updates. You cant beat perfection, but this one is pretty close. I love it.

Radium is without a doubt in a league of its own, IMO its unintrusive GUI is a benchmark that its competitors may ignore at their peril, I use various applications and widgets to access radio feeds from many nations, none can beat Radium's apparent simplicity, I hope its developer continues to work on and improve this wonderful creation, needless to say, I'm sold. I rated it at 4 out of 5 points on Features, because I'd like to see the ability to group and sort feeds based on nations, genre, alphabetical order, etc. My rating of 4 out of 5 points on Stability is due to Radium's RAM appetite, I have had to quit and reload it due to this every 2 to 3 days, this is not uncommon among apps of this type, thus, the RAM issue is not indicative of a glitch with Radium, but of the heavy use that I have subjected it to, which I use an average of 9 to 11 hours per day.

I actually found this due to recommendations on a posting about another radio app, Radioshift. But I'm happy that I did, many thanks to those who led me to the wonderful Radium! I've been happily exploring the wonders of internet radio for the last hour. Especially as I've recently been disappointed by another duff version of the BBC Radio widget. All the BBC stations are easiy available on Radioum, even my little local one. I love Radium's sheer simplicity and its huge range of available stations. What restrictions are placed upon the unregistered version?

I had a chat with the developers about adding my own custom streams to radium, and now I can. Excellent. From now on, Radium will be my primary means of listening to online radio. It's lightweight, elegant, stable and pretty. Oh, and it does ogg streams too. Yay! I find the "copy title of track to clipboard" feature particularly useful, and that's just one of those little things that make this application so great. Oh, and i also love that fact that it's applescriptable. More of that please! Thanks a bunch, Catpig Studios!

Easily the best app of its kind. Easily the best support and response times of just about any app. Easily worth the $$. I bought it within a few minutes of trying even though my favorite stations weren't added yet and my most favorite was likely to present them with some challenge. It took them some trickery but they did not flinch and did get it.

I've been using this for the past 2 days and I must say, I'm really loving it. It may very well replace SnowTape and Radio Gaga for me. I love the ease of the menubar icon and it uses very little system resources, less than the other 2 mentioned programs. Although to be fair, neither SnowTape or Radio Gaga uses much memory. Very easy to use, very easy to set up, oh yeah, and it does Sirius/XM too. So now it very well replace Pulsar for me as well. SWEET! I'm a sucker for a menubar icon instead of a dock icon, what can I say. It's a very nice piece of software, I would recommend it.

I really like Radium and its developers, and have no quarrel with them whatsoever. But I'd like to take this opportunity to repeat something I've said regarding other software posted on this site, that “Release notes were unavailable when this listing was updated“ is totally unacceptable for any software. I like to be able to read the ingredients list of packaged food to know what I'm putting in my mouth, and for the same reason I like to know what I'm putting in my computer. In this case, I'm sure the changes are completely benign, but in some other cases I have no such confidence. If I were in charge of the MacUpdate site, I would adopt a blanket policy of refusing to post any software unaccompanied by release notes. That would make developers clean up their act in a hurry.

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.

Very simple to use and convenient. Compatible with many online radio stations and even has a favorites for those stations you like a lot. When it comes to price how can you complain their site http://www.catpigstudios.com/radium/ says "If you choose to buy the program, you pick the price." Developers are easy to contact and very helpful as well. Thanks for a great application.

Hi! Radium works with Audio Hijack Pro. Here's how to record stuff: 1. Open Radium and Audio Hijack Pro 2. In Audio Hijack Pro, choose "System Audio" in the "Input" category. 3. Play music in Radium. CatPig Team.

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.

Contrary to the review by "DANA SUTTON", Radium has a favorites feature that's clearly stated in a) The program's description, and b) in the screenshot. We'd appreciate it if people wrote their reviews in an accurate way, instead of misguiding potential users.
