    A friend of mine with a Samsung Omnia showed me a way on his phone last night to search for live audio. He quickly did a search on Chicago Bears and found 3 stations during the Monday Night Football game where we could listen to live audio. I wonder if the G1 could do some sort of streaming audio via a radio station.

    Anyone know how that might work?

    You can try using StreamFurious from the Android Market. I use it to play streaming audio links from local radio stations' websites.

    Novocain! Nicely done. Really, I am listening to ESPN 800 out of San Diego right now!

    This is not as easy to use as Kinoma was....specifically....to find a station I had to click "Search Shoutcast" and it brings up a non-mobile friendly page. I didn't really know what to do after I searched their directory.

    Needs a bit more instruction. But as a basic find, very nice!

    Awesome. Glad it worked out.

    I had a hard time with the whole 'Search Shoutcast' part too. I ended up just going to the radio station's website and clicked on their link and somehow that worked too.

    Could you add them StreamFurious then? This was where I was a little confused.

    The links stayed in my stored list of 'channels.' So I guess they were automatically added/saved/stored?

    EDIT: ooops, did a 'Refresh Channels' and the radio stations I added were gone. So yeah, don't do that :)

    I haven't even gotten them working in the first place...looks like we both should email the developer and just ask.

    This app does not really save the stations yet, I wish it would cause it is a good app.

    It does do both am/fm radio and as most stations have a streaming link, like Starlog says it doesn't save yet.

    It seems like a great start though.

    All the stations I use have been saved in the list. It has some quirkyness to it. Make sure you have the latest version. Might not be a bad idea to uninstall/reinstall either. I had to do this to get it working correctly a few weeks ago.

    I tried this, but maybe I am doing something wrong. Would you mind outlining step by step how you add a new station? Thanks in advance.
