I have always had a love/hate relationship with my CD/Radio. There is a shelf for it in my bathroom. Up until recently it has sat there, willing and able to play CD’s or a radio station of my choosing. I like to have music going while I shower and get ready for my day.
The love part of the relationship is this: I LOVE good music.
The hate part of the relationship is this: I HATE commercials.
When listening to radio I have discovered there are TONS of commercials. I really hate them.
When I listen to my own CD – because of the moisture in the bathroom – the CD sometimes skips or won’t play at all.
I have loved Spotify free service on my iMac so I decided to try Spotify premium service for a month so that I could listen to my playlist on my mobile devices and more particularly in the bathroom. This meant getting rid of the clunky CD player and buying a speaker dock for my iPhone.
I actually tried one – returned it and tried another one. Then because I didn’t want to pay for music from a monthly subscription like Spotify – I decided to explore internet radio.
I bought an app for .99 that allows me to access radio from around the world – COMMERCIAL FREE. It is called SHOUTcast.
I can play it from my iPhone or iPad in my bathroom – my favorites include easy listening stations and movie soundtracks. They are my new favorites. Can’t wait to try Christmas stations.
And now there is commercial free music coming from a radio station of music that I love – any time I am in the bathroom getting ready for the day – or winding down for the night.
If you are a music lover – you will love this option on your mobile devices! And if you have not yet discovered having a speaker dock for your mobile devices – I highly recommend Sony – great speaker sound and has a digital radio with it – with the clock displayed on the front. Great for at night when I get up to go to the bathroom 🙂 It even has a remote – just like this one in the picture. I use the remote ALL THE TIME – especially for Spotify tunes or tunes from my own playlist in iTunes. I know you will love it!
