How to listen to online radio on any device

Listen to internet radio

Currently everything or almost everything happens on the internet. Thanks to the internet we can listen to any song we want, watch the latest episode of our favorite series or the latest movie premieres. We can also access the traditional press, magazines and even to the radio of a lifetime.

With the arrival of music streaming services, the radios saw how their base business was gradually crumbling. People want to listen to their favorite songs, without ads and without a presenter having to do the Paris before putting it on.

One of the advantages of the internet, related to radio, is that it allows us to listen to our favorite stations from our computer, without having to use our lifelong radios, radios that seem like only they catch The 40 or Radio 3.

Also, for those who are lucky or unfortunate enough to live abroad or spend long periods of time, it is a good way to keep up to date with the news from their country without having to turn to satellite television.

The fastest way to access our favorite stations is directly through their website. But there is life beyond the stations of a lifetime. Thanks to the internet, we can find stations from other regions or countries that fit our tastes, needs or preferences.

The first smartphones that were launched on the market, integrated an FM chip, a chip that allowed listening to traditional radio (they used headphones as an antenna). Unfortunately, it seems that manufacturers are less and less betting on this function despite being very useful when natural disasters occur and the main communication channels have stopped working.

Radio Garden

Radio Garden

Radio Garden is one of the most popular and comprehensive web services for listening to radio stations from around the world. If our browser allows web pages to access our location, it will show us the closest stations to our position, which although it may seem silly, it is not.

If we know the name of the station we want to listen to, we can enter it to go directly to the station. If this is not the case, and we want to listen to, for example, any station in Venezuela, we can move across the globe to the country and click on the different green dots that represent the country's radio stations.
