TiVo Your Radio Programs
“I heard you on the wireless back in Fifty Two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you.
If I was young it didn’t stop you coming through.” – Buggles
Steve Rubel is out with a post on Radiotime, a TiVo radio like device that claims access to over 37,000 terresterial broadcasts and streaming music and talk stations from around the globe. This sounds kind of interesting. The only thing is, for me personally, other than Stern (who will shortly be off terresterial radio) I don’t find very much of it compelling anymore.
Why listen to terresterial radio when so much other great content is out there these days. Personally I’d much rather listen to The Web 2.0 show, or Ian Dixon’s Media Center show, or Phil Leigh’s excellent Inside Digital Media or for great music I’d just as soon grab Fred Wilson’s Positively 10th Street podcast. Oh and for new music (I am huge cover fan) an RSS feed to Copy, Right? is a must. Liza always serves up the greatest versions of all the songs you love.
And I haven’t even begun to get into IT Conversations, etc. etc. etc.
Is it too early to say podcaster killed the radio star?
