Curseradio – curses interface for browsing and playing internet radio

Last Updated on September 3, 2020

In Operation

Run Curseradio and you’re presented with a spartan menu.


Navigating the menu structure is intuitive, using the up and down keys with the selected entry highlighted to show the selected directory / stream. Alternatively, you can use the mouse scroll wheel to navigate.

You can jump a page with the Pg Up and Pg Dn keys, and skip to the top or bottom of the entries with the Home and End keys respectively.

To play a stream or open/close folders, press Enter. And to stop playing a stream, press k.

Here’s an image of streaming in action. The interface shows the bitrate of each stream.
