UK surfers tune-in to web radio

Over 12 million people in the UK listen to the radio online, a survey by Radio Joint Audience Research (Rajar) has found. The survey suggests that 9.1 million people listened to the radio streamed live over the internet last year, and 4.3 million downloaded a podcast of a radio programme

Over 13 per cent of those questioned indicated that they listen to the radio more often now that it is available online. Paul Kennedy, research director at Rajar, said: "This survey is very much a toe in the water."

I have a standalone WiFi radio. The selection of stations is fantastic; I listen to Deepmix Moscow Radio, K-ROCK 97.3, Jazz and some SomaFM stations, amongst others.

Grove Radio and Grove SaladFM are awesome, partly cause the idiot Chris Moyles is so immature on Radio 1, although his immatureness does wake me up in the morning as an alarm clock.

Chris Moyles cracks me up in the morning, but I don't have time to listen to the whole show. I download his weekly podcast instead.
