Take a tour of some favorite Internet radio sites from the experts at Linux New Media.

We have some very musical authors and editors at our technical center in Munich, Germany. We asked these experts to describe their favorite Internet radio sites. One of the best things about Internet radio is its international reach. You can easily tune in to a tiny station on the other side of the world if you like stream.

And thanks to the Internet, you can listen in, no matter where you are. New Jersey-based WFMU (http:// wfmu. org), for example, has a jam-packed program full of the kind of music that never makes the mainstream stations, including old soul rarities on “Downtown Soulville,” and the breathtaking world music mix on “Give the Drummer Some.” The station has live streams in Real and MP3 format, along with archived broadcasts and Podcasts.
