Still love everything but when I listen to my favorite DJ, the playlist has been stuck on a playlist from a looooooong time ago. It still plays the “most recent” for example but only ques up and shows the Same playlist over and over.

This app is a must have for music lovers. Esp those who can't get with the "program" I stream music constantly and listen to News first thing in the am. It's critical.
Practical set up and features--find new songs with ❤️ and purchase options. Best DJ's in LA. For real.

I hinge on it's existence!


Never thought to download this while at home in the SoCal area because of the 89.3 radio station but now that I'm abroad the app gives me the sense of never being too far away from home no matter the distance. And that's immensely important since I grew up with KCRW always playing at least low in the background & beginning in middle school & continuing there on afterward fell asleep to it every night while I had my radio on overnight.

Still has issues


This app works great until you get a call. After you finish your call it doesn’t resume, which is somewhat annoying, but fine. However when you hit play again it will play for only about 20 seconds and then stop. If you hit play again it will only work about 30% of the time. And if you’re playing it on a speaker via AirPlay it works even less frequently.

The only way to have it reliably restart playing after a call is to shut down the app and restart it.

Please fix! :-)
