    I thought about that then I thought about the need of being tethered to an A/C outlet all the time even more. LOL

    Does the app have a sleep timer? How obnoxious are the iHeart commercials above and beyond the regular commercials on a given radio station?

    I have no idea. I am in the UK so cannot access it. The BBC radio app has an alarm and a sleep timer so it may have. I assume it is free to download, try it.

    Why would you be tethered to an AC outlet?

    Um, because having the phone on listening to the radio for hours every day, which I don't currently do, would burn down the battery all that much faster?

    With the screen off it might not be too bad. If you have a tablet leave that plugged in.

    If they don't provide a suitable feed then your complaint should be to those stations ?

    Well, the phone (or tablet) does not have to be on "all day".

    You would have to spend a little money, and I have to say, this is an 'Android' solution.

    Here in the UK, this is what I can do.

    I use either a 1st gen Moto G phone, connecting only to my wi-fi network or a Lenovo yoga tab 3 connected n a similar manner.

    These, or more suitable examples are now available cheaply as they are not current sale models.

    I bought (as a sale item, for about $20) a Google Audio Chromecast.

    The phone or tablet is used to connect to the radio station, the signal is 'cast' to the Audio Chromecast which is connected to the hi-fi, the radio station plays and I switch off the phone or tablet and leave it playing.

    To change stations I just switch on the appropriate controller and repeat the exercise.

    There is a "Chromecast" bridge plugin for LMS which one can utilise.

    The end device for playing the 'cast' radio station can also be any one of the many stand alone radios which are available and support "casting".

    Just an idea...

    Where in the "boonies" are you? just roughly speaking
