The Road Channel app is the first of its kind created to entertain you on your ROAD TRIPS and for your RAILROAD TRIPS. (It is not a tour guide-we believe you already know where you want to go). You will hear short stories about what happened right here, wherever right here happens to be. You will hear a welcome to each state you enter with a short story about that state. You will hear the history of many of the towns you are near. If you are on an interstate highway, you will hear the history of every city, town, or community you are near, and you will hear the history of each county as you enter one. It you are a Railroad Passenger, you will listen to the history story of every railroad station that exists of ever existed in the past.
You will hear a short biography of many significant people when you reach a spot where that person lived. You will hear special news bulletins that would have been on the radio, just as if the radio had been invented at that time. You will hear those roadside historical markers when you get close to one of them. (You don’t have to stop any more to read them). You will hear surprise history stories. The Library of stories is huge – over 8,000 story points and more stories are added every day. And, you will receive an alert notice when you get to a location where one of our stories is available to listen to. And it does much more.
You will hear about the geology and the agriculture and the animal life in the areas you are driving through. You will hear about the type of farming being done where you are. It’s like an almanac on steroids. And these interesting facts are also constantly being added to our library. As a bonus, we are adding the historical markers constantly so you can listen to them about 2 miles before you get to them
The fully functional Road Channel app is free for an initial test drive that will allow you 1 story for a test, but when the test drive has completed, the free test will end, and you will have the choice to join the membership on a monthly basis, or an annual basis. For a limited time, you can join for $6.99 per month, or $28.95 per year.
For the aspiring story teller with road trip stories to share, you can even create your own stories right here, and The Road Channel will polish them, edit them, narrate them, add a suitable sound track, and publish them under your own name. (Provided they are suitable for entire family entertainment).
You can turn your road trip into an interesting, educational, and entertaining adventure. And, it will show you where you are right now, show you nearby places for fuel, nearby places to eat, nearby places to sleep, current local events we know about, and best of all-you will never hear a commercial.
Just log in, and put it down. That’s it. The Road Channel will do all the rest. We will notify you when you hit a spot where something old, or something new happened that you ought to know about……
The Road Channel app delivers short audio stories to you as you travel, any place you go. These stories are created and narrated by our own network staff and almost all of them deal with things that have happened right where you are at the moment. Your landscape changes constantly, and so does the history of the area. With The Road Channel app, you will no longer be a stranger just passing through.

Ratings and Reviews
Very useful and entertaining app
This application, with permission, will track your location and tell you stories about the area you're driving through. As your location changes, so to do the stories change.
In addition to that, it shows you what is around you. Not only physically in terms of roads and maps and such, but also gives you insight on nearby entertainment, restaurants, restrooms, etc.
So this app can entertain you, help you to get where you're going, teach you a little something about local history, and provide helpful insight with respect to services that you might require in the area. It's very good and comes recommended!
