    Older than that. I'm old enough to remember recording cassettes by holding the tape recorder next to the stereo speakers while we played an album or an 8-track. Recording your radio output directly was fancy, high tech stuff.

      Michael to increase the "clickbaitly" of the tittle, you should add that this new application is made with Rust

I like that it has a database of 25,000 stations, but the only thing I could find online was a CSV list of 25,000 stations that is being sold for $298.00. Would be cool if there was an "open" database for something like this.
        What's wrong with this community radio browser that is used by Shortwave ?

        Free for ALL!
        Everyone can use this station board in their software freely. Just have a look at the API documentation.
        Everyone is free to use the collected data (station names, tags, links to stream, links to homepages, language, country, state) in their works.
        I give all the rights I have at the accumulated data to the public domain.
        A daily backup of the MariaDB tables is at and latest.

          At least the Gnome style crippled UI and lack of a tray icon/background option makes sense on phones. But apart from that I like it, already found some new stations for special kinds of music

            Nothing, that is what I was looking for! Sorry if I could have done a better job figuring out what they used. But, seriously, that is it - thanks!!
