    how do :)

    which do you reckon is the best radio app for the mac? i currently use the little bbc radio widget but it has a few buffer problems and sometimes just doesn't work and kicks up real player errors...

    what would you recommend?

    Mucho gracias :D it is indeed awesome :)

    any way to get my mac keyboard audio controls linked into it? then again i spose it would mess itunes up which i also use...

    i did actually tick to use the remote, but that just starts and stops itunes too... how do you guys (who use this app) control it?

    I have it configured so I don't see the app on screen, it just sits in my menu and then I use the mouse to control it.

    althooooouuuugh... it seems a bit buggy, every now and then the music just stops, although its says "listening" (would have thought if would say "buffering" if the internet was being a bit poo?)

    stop and start it and it works... hope they fix that soon cuz its a great little app :) - particularly cool that i can play radio1 without using bloody real player!
