    Looking for an app that broadcasts AM radio, because I like listening to baseball commentary when at MLB games. Anyone know of an app that would let me do this?

    Sorry for adding on your post but, how hard is it to "repurpose" another internet station streaming app for your own site of choice?
    I am not a programer, but was wondering if it is just changing the URL where they stream from?

    I am looking to be able to stream KNBR which is the SF Giants/49ers station.

    Yeah, that would work if we figured out how. I wonder how much data it would use...

    I use iheartradio. It'll pickup the AM station of your choice. ;)

    Thanks. Do you know if this app is only available in the US? I'm in Canada.

    Found your KNBR streaming through the RADIO TIME app. Only been using it for a few days but it's great tons of streaming radio stations in great fast quality. The I heart radio app only has Clear Channel stations.

    RADIO TIME IS 3.99 but well worth it to me.

    Do you use data to listen to radio or is there a built-in fm transmitter in the phone?

    Yes it most definitley uses data, steaming from internet just as if you were doing from your pc. In fact the only stations you would find are ones that are streaming on the internet. I was just starting to check out their website to get some more info.
