Home theater isn’t only about electronic and computer gear, and it isn’t only about video.
I found a worthy local online radio station, RadioIDL.com (for Inner Dispersal Loop).
The programming is mostly blues, and includes locally-based artists such as Cindy Cain.
Here’s what I have been listening to for the past 25 minutes:
|08:08:34||Lil’ Ed & the Blues Imperials – S.D. Jones|
|08:05:42||Sonny Boy Williamson – Better Cut That Out|
|08:00:09||The Allman Brothers Band – Melissa (live)|
|07:57:11||Freddy King – It’s Too Bad Things Are Going So Tough|
|07:53:58||James Cotton – Midnight_Train_w/Gregg_Allman|
|07:53:51||RadioIDL Tulsa Urban Wilderness Colin|
|07:51:40||Howlin’ Wolf – Shake for Me|
|07:48:47||Joe Turner – I Get The Blues When It Rains|
|07:45:46||Cindy Cain – Papa Let Me|
|07:42:12||Lonnie Mack; Stevie Ray Vaughan – Double Whammy|
RadioIDL also has its own local talk shows: City of Giants with Michael Patton, and The InnerLoopers with Mark Barcus and Mary Morrison Barcus.
Some of the ways to listen:
Go to RadioIDL.com and listen via browser or pop-out player.
Set up an account with Tunein and add RadioIDL as a favorite.
Get the Tunein Android or Apple app.
On Roku, add the Tunein Channel (free).
If you have a Raspberry Pi running OSMC like I do (see image at top), get the Tunein add-on, then make RadioIDL a favorite for the device.
Also, RadioIDL is coming soon to iHeartRadio, which would make it accessible on TiVo’s iHeart app.
If you are a blues fan, you don’t need to be from Tulsa to appreciate RadioIDL!
Give it a try. I find it a refreshing change of pace.
