This is as cheap as it gets, given that you've already got internet access and (I assume, not sure if it works on mobile - theoretically it should, it's all HTML5 now) a capable PC.




Okay this is surprisingly captivating. I didn't think something "on the web" would be as good as the real deal, but I've been stuck with this for 30 minutes. Currently tuned in to a couple of Russians talking while I do the last bit of work for the night. (I don't know Russian so the static on the air plus the foreign language is a nice background noise.)


Oh yeah, it's absolutely brilliant, I have literally zero interest in radio but I spent a good 2 or so hours just fiddling around with it a few days ago - it's surprisingly relaxing just tuning in and out of different things.
