Which radio stations do investors listen to

Tip: Listen to radio stations in Apple's music app for free

Question: In iTunes before macOS Catalina, there was an extensive list of Internet radio stations structured by topic and genre. Since the upgrade to macOS 10.15, I can no longer find it in the new music app. Has Apple actually completely canceled the function?

Mac & i replies: Unfortunately, this overview is no longer available in Apple's new music app. In the "Radio" section of Apple Music at the very bottom, you can click on "Radio Stations" to access a genre list, but only a few stations are represented there. Plus, you can only hear a lot of them if you pay for Apple Music.

However, the radio stations have not completely disappeared. If you know the name of the station, you can still find it using the search box in the sidebar. The important thing is that you browse Apple Music. You will then find it in the results under the heading "Radio stations". You can play all entries under which "TuneIn" stands for free and without an Apple Music subscription. Apple has apparently integrated the entire channel catalog of the provider TuneIn.

Incidentally, this works in the music app on Macs as well as on iPhones and iPads. You can also ask Siri to play a specific station.

Unfortunately, you cannot collect the radio stations in playlists or determine favorites. This is only possible in separate Mac apps such as VLC (free), Triode or Odio (free). These also provide a directory for browsing. Alternatively, TuneIn can also be used directly.
