    Ehi.I have the Motorola Droid.I really love it. Here is a couple issues. That I. Have. When can we finally listen to certain live radio stations? Almost every station has a link. That. Says listen live on your iPhone or blackberry
    This is very frustrating. also,is there any word on the 2.1 update? Thank-you

    There are a few things you can do now to listen to live radio stations. Check out iheartradio, RadioTime, DroidLiveLite. Slacker and Pandora stream music, but not specific radio stations.

    There are several apps on the market that may work. iheartradio works somewhat for clear channel stations, I found the connection to be intermittent at best. Flycast works for some stations, but in my area there was a 15 minute delay for my sports radio station. I ended up searching for my stations here, rosinstrument.com, and added them to droid live. This has worked well for me.

    still looking

    Thanks so much for your resonse. I have the iheart radio and pandora. The stations I enjoy are not yet on there,and may never be. What is frustrating is seeing that the iphones and blackberries all have such easy access to these links, I wonder if the droid will ever have this option. For example, I love sports radio. I lsten to wscr am 670 here in chicago. It has a link on its homepage, click here to listen live on your iphone or blackberry. Same with wxrt93.1 in chicago. No doubt pandora is really good. I listen a lot. However,its a drag when lesser phones do wjat droid should be doing. Maybe the long awaited update to 2.1 will solve this? Do you agree with my frustration?

    trying

    Thanks again guys. It really still dloes not explain why the driod can't be included in these simple apps that blackberry and iphone get to enjoy. I mean afterall,in a world that doesn't,droid does. Well, it doesn't. Don't get me wrong,I love my phone,its awsome. Its just that when you see lesser phones enjoying free and and easy apps,it gets you frustrated

    wscr am 670 available on Cherry Rplayer

    Really cannot blame it on Droid. Someone writes these things and creates links.
    Write to each radio station to let them know what you want.
    I use Cherry Rplayer and it has links to my local station. I looked and it has wscr am 670. Listening to it now.

    Get Cherry Rplayer from the market. :icon_ banana:

    Mostly those links on websites you speak of open a flash page to play the music. So you are definitely incorrect about the iPhone being able to work on those webpages because it will NEVER have flash like we will.

    Also that has nothing to do with Moto, VZW, Droid, etc. That's Adobe's baby and they are developing a flash mobile.

    If the stations you want are not ClearChannel stations then the answer is they never will be. iheartradio is a ClearChannel app and therefore covers only their stations. The other apps people have mentioned carry non-ClearChannel stations. Try one of those to see if it has your stations. There is a pay app that will add any station you request, but I don't remember which one it is. I am sure someone else will chime in with the name.

    The other apps will carry other steaming stuff too. I've used droidlive to listen to the police and fire channels.

    You're placing the blame in the wrong place here. You're mad at the phone because your favorite radio stations haven't made THEIR services available to it? You may have to take some action on your own here. I have two suggestions for you. You may try one or both.

    1. As suggested above, contact a streaming radio app developer (or a few) and kindly request they see if they can add your favorite stations to their list.

    2. Contact your favorite radio stations and kindly inform them that you are willing but unable to listen to their programming on your Android device. Maybe give them a figure of the number of Android devices in circulation. More listeners = more potential advertising $$ for them. Try and give them some incentive to jump on board here. Also provide them with the names of a couple of apps that do stream live broadcasts, along with the website/email address of those apps so that they may contact the developers.

    Give Yourmuze.fm a try. Looks like you should be able to stream the Score this way.

    You'll want to set up an account on your computer, then search for the stations you want added to your favorites.
    Next open up m.yourmuze.fm on your Droids browser and log in... this works for me to stream a local AM sports radio station near me.

    Just did a search for "Chicago" and "sports" and found the Score.

    Good luck

    Why has no one mentioned StreamFurious?

    I use it to listen to all my local AM stations for news, sports and political talk.
