Personal Internet Radio Stations

If the hundreds of radio stations online fail to provide you with what you’re looking for, it’s time you learned how to customize your own station. A few sites allow you to create a custom radio station by choosing your favorite songs, albums, artists, and musical genres. The station software will then play similar types of music and provide the option to veto songs you hate. Or search for music you like online and create your own radio playlist.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Although you can usually listen to customized radio without setting up an account, there are benefits to logging in. For example, you can save your favorite stations and accumulate your own portfolio of stations from which to choose.
  • As explained by the BBC, streaming is different from downloading, but it puts a similar toll on a network connection. Your office Internet policy may ban streaming, so be sure to check if it’s allowed.
