    A few weeks back I started using the full version of droid live (has another name now but I forget it at the moment) to stream various music and talk radio stations (both national and international) The program worked great, as I was able to easly connect and stream music/talk with virtually no drops. There is one local sports talk radio that I listen to the most. All of a sudden, in the last week or so, live has had serious problems connecting to that one specific station. Once connected however, the program actually works fine with no drops. it just takes repeated attempts to get it to connect. I know it is not a signal issue, as I get great 3G in my home and business. Sent an email to the developer a few days ago and have not heard anything back yet. So do any of you know of any decent programs that might rival droid live? Thanks!

    I have been using Cherry Rplayer for awhile now. I haven't had any issue with drops or connecting to the streams. It is free on the Market.

    It comes with a national (and world I believe) listing, but you have the ability to add any streams of your choice as well.

    Edit: Have you tried streaming the station on something a computer or anything else to determine where the issue is coming from?

    Hello and thanks for taking the time to repond. Ok, feel a bit silly now. Attempting to stream the station from a computer never entered my mind. Droid Live happens to partner with shoutcast, so I went to shoutcasts site and attempted to stream the station from there. Wouldn't you know it? The station wouldnt work there (via itunes player) either. At least I know its nothing on my end. it figures its the one station I just happen to listen to the most though :mad: Other then that, its actually a pretty good paid app. I might give yours a try also. Thanks again for the troubleshoot help!

    KAL-EL, if you're trying to listen to 610 WIP, I use StreamFurious Pro. It has all of the CBS radio stations listed including 610, 1210, & 94. I forget how much I paid for it and I'm not sure what the limits are of the free version. It does drop out every now and then, but not so much to be annoying.

    Yep, 610 WIP is the specific station I am having so much trouble with. Out of sheer frustration I was going to just uninstall droid live, but since I already paid for it, I might as well keep it. I will give your suggestion a look see. Thanks a ton!

    So I just looked up StreamFurious in the market. The pro version seems to have gotton a lot of bad reviews because its not updated very often. I might give the free version a try first before buying the pro version.

    Why would anyone want to voluntarily listen to 610? Do you actually enjoy hearing the inane ramblings of Angelo Cataldi?

    ;-)

    Your station is available and it's currently streaming without hiccups. I use this app every night to play Coast To Coast AM.

    I actually find the morning show to be quite entertaining at times. Usually switch between that and Mike and Mike on 950.

    I used Tunein and they just stopped streaming WIP 610 from Philadelphia.
    Is there any other service streaming WIP?

    CBS has removed all of its stations from TuneIn. Why, I have no idea. Its' annoying actually. I know mistakenly I once got the Phillies game on it. I'm assuming that was a goof. But now I have to find another app.
    And while Angelo gets old, the other's are good.
