Radium: A No-browser Internet Radio Player

Radium is a simple, well-designed and — best of all — unobtrusive Internet radio player for Mac (s aapl) that sits in your menu bar. I listen to the radio most of the day while I’m working, and I like Radium because it doesn’t force me to use an extra browser tab or to have an app open on my desktop.

Thousands of stations can be searched on Radium by name, genre, country, language and city (if your preferred station isn’t included in the list, you can add it manually). Once you’ve found some that you like (I recommend BBC 6 Music), simply add them to your favorites. You can also set up global keyboard shortcuts to control the app without having to open its menu.

If you like listening to the radio while working, I highly recommend Radium. A license costs $16, which includes all future versions. A free, fully-functional 30-day trial is available.
