Last.fm full review
A million formats lived and died on AM and FM radio. But news of the niche format’s death was slightly exaggerated. Album-oriented rock, classical, bluegrass, free-form progressive, surf rock and punk didn’t really die at all. Some interesting music migrated to satellite. The rest moved to the Internet. To music lovers for whom a 160GB iPod classic is still disappointingly small, Internet radio gives the iPhone and iPod touch an unlimited capacity for music.
Assuming that Internet radio survives the latest salvos from copyright holders, satellite and cable providers, iPhone and iPod touch users have excellent options. Internet radio offer users a vast selection of content, from mainstream commercial fare to more eclectic offerings and b-sides so obscure even the original artists have forgotten them.
