While having more and more of those new sexy digital media every day, we still remain attached to our good-old «real-world» ones. This is true for books (can those e-books touch us like those made of the real paper?), but this is ten times true for the radio.
This good old media, ether, diversity of stations, round-the-clock voices what can digits and the Internet oppose to it?
OK, the digital world has nothing to oppose the radio-ethereal world; but it does have something to supply: Radio Explorer. This software is a real must for any radio-fan, as it contains worldwide shortwave radio station schedules -virtually all the world has.
All you need to use this goody: enter your region and geographical coordinates (knowing that is not the simplest thing in the world, but neither is the hardest one) and, magically, all radio-streams which your geography accepts, are for you! Of course, it doesnt look like «just list of all stations». For each station it provides its parameters available (frequency, language and so on) as well as full schedule. There are numerous ways you can use this information: filter stations you want to listen by any parameter (time, language, now-playing, and so on), or view the maps.
There are still things digital and real world could share Radio Explorer is just a case!
