    I have been digging and have come up empty in reference to getting my CBS radio to stream on my phone. Does anyone know of an app that streams CBS radio stations?

    Thanks!

    I dug for one before switching from the iPhone and there isn't one. I have no idea if AOL Radio is even coming to Android. Wunderradio is coming tho and it has many of those stations.

    I actually just found a roundabout way to get it on Android. It worked for me so I figured I would share. This is not my walk through I'm just reposting it.

    "
    I don't want to hear about Stream Furious or IMEEM or any of the other apps, that's not true radio station streaming. I know about the ORB workaroud and its unstable & a pain in the ass. The app I was looking forward to the most, was IPhones radio app. It's basically aolRadio which is about 100 am/fm stations & another 50 or so channels of catagorized music. Until G1 gets flash or this app, I think I found the easiest way to listen to the am/fm stations on the aol app.

    Step 1) Download Stream Furious

    Step 2) Go to AOLradio.com to see the stations you want that they have (Click on the CBS radio on the list)

    Step 3) Go to streamfinder.com on your G1

    Step 4) Find a station you want that is on the AOLRadio CBS Stations list. (Ex. kroq from Los Angeles)

    Step 5) Enter KROQFM in the "search by keyword" in the streamfinder website. If it was an AM station you would enter the call letters followed by AM (Ex. WFANAM)

    Step 6) Hit search then click on the stream that says "Now playing Shoutcast" This will play it in your StreamFurious player and save it to the StreamFurious stations

    Step 7) Repeat for as many stations as you want.

    Until we get a real radio station app, I think this is the easiest & best way to do it.
    "

    Hope that helps!

    Does anyone know how to make TuneWiki accept downloaded pls files. I don't mind Stream Furious, but since TuneWiki already has a Shoutcast plugin, I would rather just have one program vs two.

    Cherry Rplayer works. I use it to stream KROQFM and KROQHD2.
    Until AOL or CBS release an app of their own this works, and now since iheartradio is available I can now get all the stations I listen to.

    I kind of wish there was just a Radio app that could play all stations (AAC, shoutcast, flash) instead of having these 2 apps. FTC?

    I think "IHeartRadio" in the Market does CBS Stations.

    Tried that one but no "Jack." I heart does have a local station I listen to but since my phone has FM it's redundant.

    Got hooked on that station on a recent trip to LA. I stream it all day and night. The only place I couldn't was in my car. Now I can and it's all good!

    Thanks for the info.
