Welcome to Live-Radio.net, your one-stop website for listening to live radio stations from around the world - thanks for stopping by!
On the site you will find links to THOUSANDS of radio stations worldwide, all of which, with free software, you will be able to hear through your computer. This is GREAT if you are living away from home and want to listen to news from your country, or maybe even your home town radio station (which happens quite a lot!). Or perhaps you might have been a DX-er and your favourite station is no longer available on MW/SW!
The stations we list on our website are proper radio stations - stations which can be heard on a normal radio - our definition of a radio station is a station which actually uses radio waves to transmit it's programming, and which can be heard...on a normal radio.
You will not find "Internet-only" stations, which have NO connection with radio, listed on this website.
We rely on people like you to keep us up-to-date with changes to stations which we have listed, or to tell us about stations which have started streamng online which we do not yet know about.
Please see the links in the sidebar on the left for "Add a Station" or "Amend a Station".
This site is used by many stations, including the BBC World Service and the BBC Monitoring Service - it is also mentioned in BBC training documents for their journalists.
IF YOU ARE A NEW VISITOR, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING!
If you are browsing the various countries, please be aware that these are arranged geographically. For example, the Canary Islands (Spanish) are listed in the African section, as they are located in close proximity to Africa.
Some stations have their own embedded player on the relevant page, but this means that you may have to disable any popup killer software when you click on a "Popup WMP" stream (e.g. Streamaudio) as the software may prevent the popup player from loading! This is now more important since the SP2 release of Windows XP now includes a popup blocker as standard!
SOMETHING TO NOTE:
Connections can be a bit slow or erratic (depending on network traffic), and may not always work (the audio server may be offline or serving the maximum number of connections). A link which is down may return minutes, days or weeks later. Some countries which are particularly unreliable are Brazil, Russia, Poland and Thailand, amongst others.
Stations which no longer work are removed (within 4 weeks so as to allow the station(s) time to restore their audio).
