Listening to Radio Stations online, back in the day...

Out of curiosity, I visited the site of Live365, an online radio service that I used to use back in the early-to-mid 2000s. It’s still a thing, though now mobile-only and limited to the USA and Canada due to rights management costs.

(Back in that time, of course, listening to radio stations online wasn’t nearly as easy at it is now, and was typically locked into services like Live365 or even shudders RealPlayer…)

Even more bizarrely, Real are still around too, as is their RealPlayer app! And yes, they’re still trying to get you to pay for extra features. I remember the hassle of removing all of the extras that they tried to add to your Windows system alongside the player app. Fun times. /sarcasm
