Internet Radio

20200324 The default music player, RhythmBox, supports internet radio station streaming. It has only a small collection of stations listed by default. Further stations can be added by entering the station's URL and no searching is supported by the application itself.

odio, installed as a snap, is an easy to use and pleasing to view dedicated radio station streaming application. Through its interface a comprehensive collection of radio stations are available and further stations can be searched for within the application. Favourite radio stations can be tagged and appear under My Library. The GUI can be set to be either light or dark mode.
