There's An App for That

You probably know that Magic 98 is streaming online, and you can listen from anywhere in the world by clicking "Listen Live" at Magic 98.com. People really do listen in faraway places--I've had people check in on my shows recently from Texas, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Florida. We once got an e-mail from a Madisonian who had relocated to Europe but listened online to get a little taste of home. And we know there are lots of American Top 40 fans who can't hear the show where they live, so they log on for Casey every weekend.

But what if all you have is a desktop computer? Maybe you're traveling and you don't want to carry the laptop. Maybe you don't have an Internet connection where you're going. Wouldn't it be great if there were an easy way to listen to Magic on your smartphone or tablet?

There is. Ann got me a Kindle tablet recently, and I discovered an app called TuneIn Radio that lets you choose from upwards of 100,000 radio stations around the world--including Magic 98. Whether you have an iPhone, a Blackberry, a Google phone, or you run Android apps, you can get the TuneIn Radio app free. It also works on certain TVs and connected devices for your TV, and even in your car, if you're equipped for that.

Find out how to get TuneIn Radio here. (The app is free, but as always, your own data plan charges may apply as you listen.) Then, when you're listening to us on some beach while there's a blizzard back here, you can call up and gloat. Or not. Your choice.)
