Has anything replaced East Village Radio?
August 21, 2014 3:48 AM   Subscribe

I've been trying to find a replacement for East Village Radio, or some sort of equivalent. Soundcloud and Spotify don't cut it as it requires too much effort curating what I want to listen. Red Bull Music Academy is close, but is too festival/house without a lot of diversity. I'm following a few EVR shows that have migrated to other platforms (Chances with Wolves, Delancey Music Service), but ideally I'd like an app that just plays good music. Awhile back I listened to a left bank French music station that was alright, but I forgot the name and at the time it had a pretty mediocre flash player. This was a legit station however, with ads, I didn't mind it. Any suggestions would be great!

Was the French station Fip or Radio Nova? Either of those could perhaps fit your description (including the rubbish player!). I can't help with alternative stations similar to East Village Radio though, as I've never heard of it!

Radio Nova! Thanks, too bad the player hasn't been updated.

Pop the following into your favourite media player software for a direct stream to bypass the website player:

No love for WFMU? I think their app is fab - never had a problem with it. No ads - free form programming. There was just a post on the blue about Downtown Soulville's 20th anniversary. Without the Woof Moo I wouldn't get through a work day.

Yeah. I'd recommend WFMU or a couple of college radio stations. Lots of them have apps or streams. I know a couple of EVR DJs got their start in college radio.

(I'm a college radio DJ though. I'm always championing the format.)
