Just a while ago, we’ve been relying on transistor radios to listen to high-quality music and entertainment. Now, we’ve come a long way with technology rapidly advancing, giving birth to internet radio stations.
Although AM and FM radios are decreasing in popularity, it still plays a major role in communication and entertainment for music lovers. It’s the only places that play classical songs, oldies, and more, besides just the trending music that doesn’t really hit deep to its listeners.
If you’re one of the music lovers that think the love for radio will never die, these radio apps may take your interest as it lets you stream guitar programs not only for entertainment but for education purposes.
AccuRadio includes 1000 radio channels that you can customize for yourself. With more than 50 different genres of music to choose from such as pop, jazz, country, rock, acoustic, and countless more, there is really no limit to the possibilities, and learning guitar is sure to be one of them.
iHeartRadio is another popular radio app for Android where you can stream over thousands of radio channels. What I liked about this app, though, is that they allow you to save songs and replay them as you like, although you’ll encounter ads as you use it.
Radio Online – PCRADIO
PCRADIO is known for taking so little space on your phone plus there’s not much data usage when using this app. They provide a simple interface and different genres which are organized neatly with a search option.
Another thing I liked about this is that there’s an equalizer and sleep timer so you can clearly hear what guitar instructors are saying.
Radio Player from Audials
Audials might not be as popular, but you can literally stream over 50,000 radio stations in this app and this is perhaps why I liked it so much. There are different genres as well as 100 different podcasts to listen to.
You can also enjoy access to the cloud and a built-in equalizer, sleep timer, and more features.
Although it only works for US residents, Pandora Music is still one of the best Android radio station apps in the Play Store. It’s more like YouTube where they program itself so that you’ll get recommendations for songs and stations that you’ve “liked” in the past.
That way, you can “like” guitar stations and you’ll get some more like it.
Simple Radio is a straightforward app. Perhaps it has something to do with how the name says simple radio and how it really is simple. You can stream from over 40,000 different radio stations and you can label them as “Favorites”, which the program will then base on to give you suggestions in the “Recommended” section.
TuneIn Radio is a bit more like Pandora Music, except that it is available to anyone and it comes with more than 100,000 stations which is a pretty big figure for me and I’m sure for many people, too.
That said, they not only stream music stations, but also news, sports, and many more. You’ll also get access to its Car Mode feature so you can learn guitar as you drive.
Do you have other apps that you think should’ve made it onto this list? Feel free to leave them in the comment section below.
