Love it but struggling to get consistent streaming
After listening to the FNX sign off last month and being depressed and switching to Sirius for a while; I have to say this station is great! I'm SO happy to have the FNX team back, backed up by the power of the Boston Globe. I just cannot get consistent streams that are not interrupted every couple of minutes. My SiriusXM app works perfectly, so I don't believe it is the service (AT&T). Station gets 5 stars but the app is getting only 3 because if the inconsistency.
Also the music selection is traditional FNX with the DJs being able to chose their favorites. This is why I listen to radio. So someone can introduce me to new things. Not a computer suggesting things based on what I already own. These DJs have been introducing me to new music since I started listening to FNX in 1985!
Boy, i felt right at home tuning in on the first day and hearing Julie back on the air! And I finally have Henry to get my day started with great tunes, and news with the power of BDC behind him...
As for the app - they did a good job. The first release of this has a lot of features other radio apps have left off. "they got it right the first time"
- Plays in the background!!
- Can play the station via airplay
- Current song and album art on the main page
- share ling and store link
- last 10 songs available. (hmmm should it go back further?)
Free app with great music. You really can't go wrong.
Great music, needs more bandwidth
Love the music, love the personalities (formerly referred to as DJ's).
My only concern is that it seems like when too many people are listening, the stream gets pretty choppy.
Oh, and I never listened to 'FNX to hear edited music. Listening to bleeped stuff online really bothers me. Seems like it would sorta fit right in with the theme of the station to play songs fully uncensored. Or is this the parent company having their say? Independent radio, what?
But I really enjoy the music. So please, keep up the good work y'all!
