Discrepancy between streaming and live programming

Am a bit disappointed w this as there seems to be a delay between live programming on the radio and streaming on my phone via the app, which results in missing the continuous thread of the music. Really frustrating when you’re listening in the car and then want to continue w same program on your phone while shopping, but it sounds like they have different programming on app than on the radio. However, it’s great if you simply want good music with you always...

No link in Twitter share function

I survey several news sites and share pertinent stories with student and faculty social studies groups. I often share local HPR stories in these discussion groups. While this app is very functional, I noticed when I share a story on twitter, there's no URL included. The viewer cannot access the story they're being told about. I cannot get the story's URL unless I view through a browser, which defeats the purpose of having an app. Please fix this, as I appreciate HPR staff's local news work and want to continue adding their stories to our weekly briefings. Thank you!

Versatile, agile, intelligent news and music! What Fun

Love this app. Can't believe it took so long to fully understand the enormous benefits.

I appreciate the news, commentary and opinions as well as first class interviews, music of all genres, and the something for everyone approach.

The app lets you choose between stations, channels, schedules and programming at the tap of a finger. Just love it!
