Stations should be added to the user list like this:


You cannot use a comma , in the name or the URL.

User stations are listed before global in all stations list.  Custom genre and
theme files can be made and will be listed along with the default set.

I would be glad of any extra radio urls emailed to me so I can add to
the default list.


The Jack and NAS options for output device will only work if MPlayer is built
against them.

When changing/selecting soundcard output device you must press space on the
option.  Just scrolling down and hitting Enter does nothing.


Soma may induce the side effects of general well-being and profound spiritual


Some people might find screen messes up the dialog colours.  If you have this
line in ~/.screenrc:

attrcolor b ".I"

You might want to comment it out and try again as it seems to turn off the bold
attribute.  See the screen man page for more info.

Please mail me at for new radio urls or bug reports etc.
