There are many advantages to having internet radio but probably the most beneficial one is the versatility and mobility that you get from enjoying your favorite programs on the go. Sites like Pandora and even the iTunes listing of radio stations all offer you some of the best programming on the internet while trimming out most of the fat – commercials and what not. And there is really nothing like taking your laptop to the park and enjoying the fresh air or getting some work done in your favorite bistro – all while listening to your favorite station on the move.
The advent of 4G internet has really made it easier to enjoy the kind of radio you like from almost anywhere. If you happen to live in a 4G hotspot and you got your service through internet.clear.com then you probably know what I’m talking about.

I recently had to relocate from the San Francisco Bay Area to Charlotte, and although it was a hard move because I’d be leaving such an incredibly diverse region of the country, one of the most difficult things to leave behind was my favorite Bay Area radio station. Not only did they play incredible tunes that were quite frequently cutting edge and avant-garde, but just listing to the dj’s provided a cool SF vibe that’s hard to come by. Fortunately the radio station is owned by Cumulus which owns a total portfolio of 350 stations nationwide (ranging from Abilene to Youngstown) and they stream their broadcasts live via the internet. What that means is that I can be sitting in my living room in Charlotte while I listen to the pulse of the Bay Area and feel like I’m still right there in the thick of things. In fact, I recently went back to SF for 10 days of fun, and it was by listening to my station via Cumulus before leaving that I was able to tap into which concerts and live music venues I was going to put on my itinerary while planning visits with friends from the area. While my Bay Area station is a classic rock format, Cumulus covers them all from country to sports talk and everything in between. So, if you’re ever feeling house-bound and want to take a trip to another city without leaving the comfort of your own home, why not take a trip via Cumulus and get put right in the center of a city’s music and news scene.
