    Can someone please give me an idea for a free radio streaming app. I saw radiotime and it looks good, but wondering if something free will do the same thing. Thank you.

    I use Pandora, alot of people have been complaining about it lately. But I think it works really good. And if you're looking for radio, I also use iheartradio.

    I have iheart but i am looking for a specific station on am radio and it is not a clearchannel station. I used to use moodio.fm with my blackberry, but when i tried to use it on the droid it said unsupported.

    I was SO down with Pandora, I even paid a year's subscription because I was listening to it at work all day long (on my desktop) and passed their free limits. Then I started listening to Last.FM in the mornings while I get ready, on my Droid. Last.FM plays a much better and more eclectic mix of music. WAY better than Pandora. I did have a problem with their widget for awhile but they recently fixed it with an update.

    I like last.fm for streaming music based on my preferences. For playing existing internet streams, try streamfurious.

    DroidLive is tops for me. I use it to listen to old episodes of the Phil Hendrie show, in addition to tons of music channels. It's mainly just a shoutcast player, so it has a ton of stuff.

    Radiotime costs, but it's the only other Radio program I listen to.

    I ended up buying radiotime. It was the only place I could find the station I was looking for. Seems to be a good app for the price. Thanks for the help.

    CherryRPlayer for non-ClearChannel channels and iheartreadio for ClearChannel channels.

    +1234 for this. Its not free, but it is definitely worth it if u like listening to over the air radio. I get my morning shows and afternoon talk shows with this.

    A radio station got taken off the local ariwaves in DC. Its only on HD radio or XM or something. With this, I get it back. I use this at work too. Before I had to have the different browser tabs open with the stations, now its all at Radiotime.

    Best radio app for local radio IMO. U can also get stations around the world. Listening to a comedy show in Germany was too funny. I was gonna get an FM antenna but this was a better choice for the HD radio stations I didnt have access to.

    I use slacker radio and love it. I find it easy to use, and has tons of stations.

    When I migrated from a Blackberry to the Droid, I was happy to see iheartradio was available. Problem is, the BB version for some reason has a different and arguably better (at least for me) station list because it actually has my local stations.

    If you like RadioTime you will like Wunderadio which is coming to Android VERY soon. I had it on my iPod. Love it. Radio Time is almost as good and probably is--but for the ultimate radio experience I look forward to Wunderadio which combines it with Satellite, Police Scanners and even more over the air. According to their Twitter stream it is "very very close".

    Oh, yeah it's great. They are powered by RadioTime, and plus they have Clear Channel stations (I heart is horrible for me!) as well and more.

    One problem, it does cost. On the iPod Touch, I bought it at like $8 one year ago. Not sure what it will be here.

    I really like Slacker, its free and only plays limited ads. Quite a bit of choice as far as music you perfer.

    I have Droidlive Lite and I'm not happy so far. It keeps stopping (buffering) throughout the song? Why? Do the others do the same?

    My DroidLive (now XiiaLive) doesn't do this much; certain channels do drop out occasionally, but not often. Perhaps it's your reception area?
