In the past, radio listeners had to search through local channels to find a station they liked. While they may have liked some of the songs, they might have found the talk shows boring. The music might have been good, but the network may have packed in too many ads during rush hour. Now, people can use free radio to customize a station.

With free radio, you can narrow down your music choices to focus on a particular artist or style of music. Some free radio stations allow you to enter a song title, and they will pull up selections by similar musicians to play on your station. You can then approve or disapprove of a choice, narrowing down your preferences even further. The result is music you love with fewer ads and less boring content than you would get on traditional over-the-air stations.

Your music selection isn’t the only thing you can customize with free radio. You can find podcasts and broadcasts on certain topics. For example, you could customize a channel so you get the latest business financial advice. If you enjoy boating or yachting, you could find free radio stations covering events like America’s Cup.

Another added benefit is the multiple ways you can access free radio. You can use an HD radio that picks up all signals in your area instead of limited ones. Some people will buy a device to boost the radio’s ability to pick up certain signals. Another option is to find free radio stations over the Internet. You can access these from any device with an Internet connection, which means you can get your radio broadcasts over a smartphone or other mobile device with WiFi.

When you decide to use free radio, you can create a listening experience that you’ll truly enjoy on your own time. Plus, you won’t be restricted to a local broadcast area.
