KDFC in Paris

It is a delight to take KDFC, which we listen to every day in San Francisco, to Paris in June. Last year, we used the Listen Live feature on a Windows/Chrome platform with extension speakers. This year, plugging those into an iPhone/Safari, the interface was not as simple or pleasing, so I downloaded this app. Just lovely: we get our clear and reliable sound 25 hours (perhaps the person who complained about signal drops had poor Internet connectivity and blamed the wrong link in the chain) plus one sees what piece is playing in the dimmed iPhone screen as it plays, something I hadn't realized how much I'd enjoy. This app is a very clean and thoughtful added service from our home public radio allowing us to bring our KDFC friends into our Paris pied à terre of the year.

Way better than reported

We find KDFC to be far and away the most reliable and quick loading of any streaming radio station. Works in Botswana, works in Kyoto, works on Kauai, works in Costa Rica. In these days of limited ‘classical’ content on the air, to grouse about some smidgen of programming that does not please you seems bafflingly self-centered. As we say in the non-classical world: get a grip! Richard and Anne

It's ok for what it is...

...but I think it could be improved by having links to all of the "on demand" concerts that are accessible via the KDFC website here. Also I like to record some of the KDFC programs for later listening, and the KDFC app has no recording feature. Because of that, I use the Tune-In Radio app to listen to KDFC and so I don't see much purpose in having this app take up space on my iPhone. It doesn't do anything that other apps don't do better.
