Six Degrees Traveler Radio

Six Degrees Traveler is a two hour , weekly radio show hosted by Six Degrees Records co-founder Bob Duskis. The program bills itself as "free form radio with a global edge" because it cheerfully crosses genre lines from global grooves to ambient electronica to dance to rock to folktronica to exclusive mash ups and "white label" remixes, all in the spirit of the glory days of format-less "free form" FM radio.
A nice surprise!
What a great surprise to find the best radio show on the internet (yes, really!) available as an app. The only downside to Traveler is that it only comes out weekly! But then, Bob Duskis does need to run his label after all!
The app is great: stream the current show, listen to past show(s), check out the playlist. Nice. I would give it 5 stars, except for two flaws to this app: First, the playlist is weirdly placed. You have to use the info link (top-right corner) to get at it. It should be a link/button right below the little window displaying what's currently playing. Second, you have no control over the archives playback. Apparently there's a predefined "archived show" that will play, and that's that. I'd like to see a list of archived shows, and be able to choose one. Maybe the 10 most recent shows, plus ability to enter an installment number (there are 200+ shows archived). Oops, one more flaw: the archived show (shows?) don't show a playlist.
All in all, a must-have app for anyone who loves music. I look forward to the next version of the app.
Six Degrees Traveler is consitently THE best radio show on the internet. I can't tell you how much amazing new music I have discovered because of this show's amazing range of content and creative approach to programming. The fact that the app also allows you to stream their Archive channel and the Six Mix channel is the icing on the cake.
Over the years the Six Degrees label has exposed me to some of my favorite music. So happy that I can now straem the show where ever I am. I guess I'll have to buy one of those battery extenders for the iPhone. Thanks.
