radio-active gets our strong recommendation. If you like terminal apps and listening to radio stations, you’ll love radio-active. It’s heads and shoulders above PyRadio and curseradio.
Many internet radio players struggle with the BBC HD radio streams. How a tool copes with these streams is a good bellwether for the program’s capabilities. We’re really happy that radio-active handles them with aplomb. And radio-active works well with all the streams we’ve explored.
Memory usage is fairly frugal. There’s a good range of features although there’s lots of things we’d like added such as bitrate information on streams, and help in finding trending and popular stations.
radio-active doesn’t have that many GitHub stars which is frankly a disgrace. Never be put off trying a project just because it doesn’t have thousands or tens of thousands of stars.
