Radio XY Mobile

Here's how to tune in to Radio XY using your cell phone. (If you have some specific instructions for a phone that's not listed below, let me know, thanks!)

iPhone

  1. Just click the listen link on radioxy.com, and it will begin playing directly in Safari, using the QuickTime player. As a bonus, you can still use other apps while the stream is playing if you use this method!

    No in-player title streaming though. To see the song titles you have to click the What's Playing link above.

    Thanks to Radio XY listener Charlie for the heads-up about this option.

  2. My favorite iPhone app is Tune In Radio, available for free. Just about every terrestrial station is there, and pretty much every internet-only station too... including Radio XY! Highly recommended. Also available for Blackberry and Droid.

  3. Another option is to use the free application called FStream. [ Link to iTunes page]

    The first time you use FStream, you'll need to manually enter the URL of the stream. Then it can be added to your favorites, making it easy to listen next time.

    The URL you will need is: http://live.str3am.com:2120/listen.pls

    Nick, a Radio XY listener since terrestrial 97X went off the air in 2004, has given FStream a try and says that he now listens to Radio XY in his car, making his commute much more enjoyable!

    So, if you're an iPhone owner, go ahead and download this free app and take Radio XY with you wherever you go!

    Nick also sent a $50 donation along with his message, having also contributed to the station's recovery after an expensive hard drive crash in 2005. Thanks Nick, your support is appreciated!



Palm Centro

Listen to Radio XY on your Palm Centro smartphone.

PocketTunes comes pre-installed in the Centro. It doesn't have an "Open URL" function directly, but you can type the stream URL into the web browser (Blazer), and it will open PocketTunes automatically.

The URL you need is: http://live.str3am.com:2120/listen.pls

You only have to get it working once, then you can bookmark the station from within PocketTunes. (Menu/M to bookmark the station once it's playing, then Menu/K to access your bookmarks.)

Lemme know if you have questions!

Chaos

Palm Pre

I'm happy to report that Radio XY streams out-of-the-box on a new Palm Pre. Just click the Listen link on radioxy.com.

No in-player title streaming though. To see the song titles you have to click the What's Playing link above.


















Radio XY now accepting donations

Running a medium-sized internet station like Radio XY has some raw costs that can't be avoided. (Thanks to StreamGuys for keeping prices as low as possible, while at the same time providing high-quality bandwidth and unparalled service!)

Normally I prefer to pay all the station expenses myself, but the time has once again come to ask for your help. The last time I had to do this was in 2005, after an extended period "between jobs". I now find myself in the same situation.

Any help you could offer would be gratefully accepted! [Donate]
