    Thumbs up National Public Radio...I love NPR!!!

    I listen to NPR (National Public Radio) on the way to work every morning but when it's time to get out of the car, they're only half way through the show and it's just getting good. Does anyone know of an application I can DL to listen to it on my BB.

    I use to work for MPR/SCPR here in Los Angeles

    http://www.moodio.fm will work...go to the site and create a account....pick your stations and then visit m.moodio.fm from your phone and login....your stations will be there

    I do the same - I've listened to NPR for years and, when I'm in and out of my car, I don't have to miss anything. Moodio is the one, like Ice said. There are others but that one is easiest to use IMO.

    I was just trying out Moodio and I find it extremely difficult. I suggest you try Flycast, it has NPR and is very easy to set up and use. Good luck!

    Moodio should work on the 8320...

    ...and this release. I used it on that exact configuration until I changed carriers (Alltel) and moved to the 8330. Also I have at least 3 different NPR stations (Little Rock, Dallas and some other, I forget what) and they all work fine. I also have 2 or 3 different radio aps but I keep going back to Moodio because it's easy to set up the stations on the P-C and simply log in on my phone.

    Maybe flycast will work for you - whatever works is what you should use. Let us know how it goes. Good luck.

    Ok here's the 411. Flycast and Moodio are both easy, just very different to set up. Once I confired my email with moodio and read it over and over about for 4 times (I missed the part at the end where you had to log on to m.moodio.fm via my phone)I was cook'in with grease and NPR-Atlanta was coming through loud and clear.

    Once you download Flycast, you pick or search for a station "bam!" you've got audio. Only thing about this one is that NPR-Atlanta is not on their list. But I'm keeping both for the moment.

    I love pinstack....thanks guys what a relief. You've been so helpful. Happy Holidys!

    Glad you like the forum AND the broadcast software. You'll figure out which one serves you the best and stick with it eventually. Enjoy the stacks.

    Be sure to check out wamc.org. One of the very best public radio stations in the country and they have a lot of original content, podcasts, etc. I don't know if you can stream it on a BB or not but maybe if you are on a wifi connection...

    with moodio you can also add any streams to their database of Radio stations for free that way you can get any NPR broadcast from anywhere in the country. I use it for ESPN broadcasts and some of my favorite talk radio shows in L.A. that I don't get out here in AZ...love moodio...simple and flexible
