Software: Internet Radio Player

If you’re like me, you like to have some background music playing while you go about your day. While there are lots of ways to listen to Internet radio stations, my favorite is called Radio Tray.

Open your Software Manager, and search for RadioTray.

Once installed, you can launch the program from your Menu. You’ll find it under Sound & Video.

What will pop up, is an icon in your system tray.

Clicking on the cute little antenna with the radio waves, as seen in the left-most icon above, will allow you to select your preferences, add or delete radio stations, set the sleep timer etc.

Using the Configure Plugins menu selection, you can set the sleep timer and notifications. Notifications are great, as the current program or song being played will pop up in your notification area!
