Radio Paradise

I’ve become a bit obsessed with Internet radio station Radio Paradise www.radioparadise.com recently.
It seems to be a smallish operation, almost family run. What they do well besides play great music is have style.
Go visit their website and have a look around. See how the playlist links so well to Amazon in whichever country flavour you fancy.
It’s a listener supported station, so no ads, but of course that means they are looking for contributions from listeners.
The music is mainly what the music industry used to call Adult Orientated Rock by the way.
I have to say that I like almost everything they play even though I haven’t heard more than 50% before.

And did I tell you about the 128k AAC and 192k mp3 streams as well as the standard 128k mp3.

I prefer the sound of the 128k AAC stream – it’s remarkably good sound quality for a internet radio station.
