    iHeartRadio is free, but only has ClearChannel stations. I use RadioTime ($3) which seems to work better for me and provides far more channels.

    I think slacker radio also does a pretty good job from what I can tell. You might wanna check it out as well.

    I'm pretty sure you've already heard this, but you might just want to wait for xm-sirius radio. It has a lot of potential and hype(could be a bad thing as well). It is suppose to be here sometime in May. Since it is already the middle of May, I would probably say they are pushing it back to one of the last days in May.

    I tried two that work pretty good- both allow me to listen to 1010 WINS (news) in NY: the first is XiiaLive Lite, and the second is Cherry Rplayer, which is good for a few more stations, including WCBS 88 in NY, as well as Q104.3 for classic rock. enjoy!

    Actually sir, you might be right. I thought I saw something that said it did live radio, but I might be mistaken. My bad if i'm wrong on this one.

    But to mention something else, what is one of your local radio stations? Sometimes, the local radio stations will create their own app. So whatever your local radio station is, type it into the market and try that out.

    Try XiaLive (formerly DroidLive)...you can search for stations with it. There should be a free "Lite" version and a paid version that allows backup/restore of favorites.

    In Cherry you input the url of the radio station's feed. The url can be found at the web site of the station or can be searched with any of the soundcast software pkgs or similar pkgs for other feed conglomerates (they usually present the full, articulated url of the feed).

    I use http://streamcenter.com/pda/
    there you can search by state then scroll through the call signs. I have ARadioOnline set to play mp3 streams by default so it loads that player. But you can use the original player I believe. works great for me.
