Internet Radio URL Swap Meet

(Andrew Cox) #1

With Roon 1.2 users will be able to add Internet Radio as a source by entering the URL of an MP3 or AAC stream (or a TuneIn web page).

Many stations have multiple streams of varying quality. This thread is for people to swap info for favourite stations; particularly alternative higher quality streams that TuneIn may not be using.

There will be other threads for general discussion, feature requests or support issues associated with Internet Radio, please keep this one as a repository of URL info. My post below with brief description, website address, stream description and URL seems a handy template.

FM4 Radio Austria - indipendent pop/rock music, German and English Programs

http://mp3stream1.apasf.apa.at:8000

(Jeffrey Moore) #7

WFMU - freeform radio station based in Jersey City, New Jersey (but with a broad international listenership)

Standard 128k MP3 stream:
http://wfmu.org/wfmu.pls

Special higher-quality stream (currently 256k AAC) so far not published anywhere but this Roon forum:
http://stream0.wfmu.org/freeform-best-available

WFMU is truly freeform, meaning that each show’s actual human DJ plays or does whatever he or she wants to play or do (within the limits of US broadcast obscenity rules, of course, since this is an actual radio FM radio station in addition to providing streams).

There’s so much variety that some new listeners are initially kind of befuddled - because depending on whose slot they tune in for, they could hear: 78 RPM records and Edison cylinders played on period equipment, facemelting Nordic death metal, sincere folk singers, Japanese pop, roadhouse honky-tonk, obscure 1970s pop/rock, straight-ahead rock and roll, free jazz, twelve-tone modern “classical” music, hard bop, garage rock, R&B, dance club music, 1980s-sounding jangle rock, German New Wave, Finnish Humppa… I haven’t nearly covered it all… or any of a few talk shows. WFMU is for people with hungry ears and restless minds.

Homepage: https://wfmu.org/
Show schedule: http://www.wfmu.org/table

One of the secrets to happy listenership is that once you identify your favorite DJs - people whose taste frequently aligns with your own - you can either plan to listen to their shows live, or you can listen to their shows at your convenience - because shows at WFMU are archived and playable on demand. (Play of the archives seems unlikely to be supported in the much-awaited 1.2 release of Roon, but playing the WFMU live streams is something we’ve been told is likely to work, which makes me very happy.)

Playlists and archives: http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/

If any people here want to tell me (I don’t know if that should be offlist or in another thread or here - I don’t want to monopolize this thread with an obnoxious amount of plugging) what kinds of music they like, I’ll be glad to recommend a few shows they might enjoy listening to.

WFMU alternate stream: Give the Drummer Radio - 24-hour stream which sometimes has live DJs, sometimes plays as a jukebox of its curator’s music. Backstory: beloved WFMU DJ Doug Schulkind did a WFMU-proper show called Give the Drummer Some (sometimes jazz, sometimes Cambodian or Thai or African bands, sometimes R&B; often percussion-forward, sometimes not; always stuff Doug likes and wants to share) for many years. When Doug had to relocate to Pittsburgh, arrangements were made so that he could continue to do his show on his own special stream; when there was no live show, the stream plays a jukebox of music Doug curates.

But Doug has kept adding more DJs doing live shows to his stream, until now it’s like a whole little radio station of its own - featuring live shows by DJs from all over the US and sometimes elsewhere in the world. GTDR features shows from two other long-time and cherished WFMU DJs who had to leave town (Charlie Lewis and Tony Coulter) and a roster of geographically and musically diverse other DJs Doug has managed to collect, including: Kim Sorise in Louisville Kentucky, “Uncle Michael” in Topeka, Kansas, Jesse Kaminsky somewhere in Mass, noted music blogger Gary “Bodega Pop” Sullivan from nearby Brooklyn, music and Simpsons and Monkees aficionado Amanda Nazario, visual artist and curator of very interesting music Mayuko, and more.

Oh, and Doug still does two shows a week (on Tuesdays and Fridays).

Stream URL: http://wfmu.org/wfmu_drummer.pls
Schedule: http://wfmu.org/table?period=7115

WFMU alternate stream: Ichiban Rock and Soul - 24-hour stream which sometimes has live DJs, sometimes plays as a jukebox of its curator’s music

Stream URL: http://wfmu.org/wfmu_rock.pls
Schedule: https://wfmu.org/table?period=8364

The alternate streams don’t need to conform to US broadcast obscenity rules, although they don’t usually go out of their way to be sweary.

full-disclosure note: I’m now a WFMU staff member, but I’d be recommending the station as enthusiastically if I weren’t (I was a listener, fan and volunteer for WFMU for a good decade before getting the job offer).

Sweet, glad to hear it works nicely in the eagerly-anticipated 1.2, and glad to know you’re a WFMU fan!

Note that that fancy higher-quality WFMU URL is potentially some fractional percentage less reliable than the regular MP3 stream, because the way I set it up introduces an additional single point of failure relative to the standard 128k MP3 stream - for freeform-best-available, both copies of the stream outbound from the station (we do outbound streams over diverse paths to Icecast servers in diverse cloud datacenters which listen to each other for failover) originate from a single stream encoder machine, the one fed by our fanciest and best-sounding A/D converter. So if that encoder machine falls over, so does the fancy stream until I give the encoder a kick. But the regular MP3 stream should be a fine fallback in that case.

Actually, on the subject of failover, there’s an order I’d follow as a listener:

  1. Best sounding: http://stream0.wfmu.org/freeform-best-available

  2. Standard, via primary public server: http://stream0.wfmu.org/freeform-128k

  3. Standard, via secondary public server: http://stream1.wfmu.org/freeform-128k

Sometimes there are network issues between a given public server and a user which can be avoided by switching to the other public server.

The PLS file at the end of this url in fact tries to lay out a failover order for the regular 128k stream, for those audio clients which support playlists and drop through to the next entry when one stream becomes unavailable. (hint!)

A useful webpage of High BitRate Internet Radio URLs.

Soma FM
The TuneIn pages default to a 33kbs stream. You can load the station art from TuneIn and then substitute a higher bit rate stream from:

https://somafm.com/[name of station]/directstreamlinks.html”

I found the direct server 128kbs AAC streams to sound best.
