This Thread will feature channels and specials on 181.FM Free Internet Radio. Those of you who do not enjoy commercials may not enjoy these channels, but the ads are few and far between. I don't mind the odd commercial as long as the service is free. Someone has to pay for it. Right? Today I'll feature the Beatles Channel.

Because the medium doesn't traverse radio waves, the subject of this thread should be renamed something like Music available over the internet, compiled for your computer by other computers.

Or you can realize that new technology often adapts and modifies existing, analogous terms. Or are you staring at a piece of wood when you're looking at your OS's desktop?

Actually, the name of the Forum is "AM/ FM, Internet Radio and Music Industry"
Note the "Internet Radio" title.

Of course it is, just because you aren't listening to it by over the air, it is still broadcast radio, subject to all the rules of over the air broadcast in it's area, you just are using a different method to pick it up.

There is a internet station called "radio-eurodance-classic" that runs on my YAMAHA reciever, commercial free.
They play good 90's style eurodance music.

On YAMAHA there are some internet stations that play eurodance music from Germany. I use my internet radio a lot to bypass geoblocks and listen to stuff from other places like Australia.

Great station from England called rinse.fm , plays great music, almost no commercials.
