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.
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.
I love the current!!! Listen to it every day streamed from my iPad to a jawbone jambox speaker and it infrequently drops, but not enough to not listen to it. The best music mix!!!! Only thing weird is when they report on bad weather I momentarily stop and wonder how we're getting snow~ I live in Hawaii. 😊
Stops working after a few minutes
The news station goes for a bit then stops and won't restart.
