Listen to Minnesota Public Radio anywhere you go with the MPR Radio player. This application lets you listen to all seven of MPR's streams: The Current, Local Current, Classical MPR, MPR News, Radio Heartland, Wonderground Radio, and the Choral Stream from Classical MPR.
The Current at 89.3 FM in the Twin Cities plays independent emerging artists alongside the legends who inspired them. Classical MPR provides lively classical music and good company to listeners throughout the day. MPR News provides in-depth coverage of regional, national and world issues.
The high-quality streams (128 k) for The Current and Classical MPR play best using a wifi or 3G connection. The MPR News stream (64k) will play with wifi, 3G, or the EDGE network. This application was developed by Minnesota Public Radio And CodeMorphic, Inc.
What's New in Version 2.4
Bug fixes and stability enhancements.
Use it daily; wish it was better
I listen to the Current stream every morning. Works well on my 6s+. MPR could steal a page from the KCRW and KEXP apps, and include features like being able to view a playlist of previous songs, being able to favorite current and previously played songs, and linking to various ways to purchase played songs.
Loses the stream regularly and predictably
Great idea in principle. However, when streaming The Current, it often switches over to the sponsor message (anyone noticed that MPR is getting suspiciously commercial??) and forecast, and the stream never comes back. During Morning Edition, the stream is lost at :20 and :40 after the hour, again right after the sponsor messages and forecast. This app is worse than worthless, it’s annoying. Load the stream URLs in your browser and run them that way.
One bug disconnecting headphones
The apps works great but has one annoying bug. Listen for a while with headphones, then pause playback. Now disconnect your headphones. The app starts playing again through the iPhone speakers, and you have to bring it up and pause it again.
