There are many applications that allow you to listen to online radio stations and Screamer Radio is one of the more popular ones. Screamer is a totally free piece of software and does not come bundled with spyware, adware, banner ads or any other unwanted crap like that. It supports a number of operating systems including Windows Vista and even the older Windows 98.

I first tried out Screamer about 5 years back and it’s become one of my favorite apps ever since. This software comes with hundreds of preset stations and you can easily add your own stations to the list. One of the cool features of Screamer is that it allows you to record the radio stream in mp3 format with the click of a button.

    I am a big fan of Adult Contemporary music and the only radio station that plays a wide range of this music is 97.9 WRMF. 97.9 WRMF plays it all, from Soft Rock to Pop Rock both old and new. This is also my number one station to get all the latest news feed, local and international news and traffic reports. I am also kept updated on the station’s latest promotions and community events.
