    I checked out the official NRP app and felt that it left a couple of things to be desired. Namely live streaming and the ability to favorite channels, or programs.

    Is there a good online radio where I can stream from the NPR live feed? I tried a couple, and they either couldn't connect and kept asking me to force close, or the interface was horrible. A Online Radio is decent, but I just really can't stand the interface.

    Recommendations are most welcome!

    Yes, I realize the NPR app is out. I was referring to it in my original post when I said that it lacked live stream or a option to favorite.

    Thanks for your links + reply, though.

    OK. NP. What I do is find a web station that I want to listen to that offers MP3 streaming, open it with the browser and let Stream It all do the work for me.

    I suspect that Wunderradio will help out when it is ported to the real world (where droids rule :motdroidhoriz: )

    I used that to listen to a station that carried Monday Night Football across the country because I couldn't find a mobile solution any other way. Thousands of broadcast stations available.

    I tried out the official app today... couldnt get the playlist to continuously play - stops after each individual podcast then you have to click on the next one. Not ideal for driving.
    Has anyone found a better way to do this???

    Yeah, I'm using streamfurious pro (lite version should work, as well) to stream NPR both the local station and the national stream, from shoutcast. I am very pleased with streamfurious.

    FWIW - I've been using DroidLive Lite (free) for streaming my local NPR and Google Listen for Science Friday podcasts. Works fine for me.
