It was truly sad news the day Indie 103.1 FM went off the air, and although all good things must come to end eventually many of us who listened everyday were devistated. Although I won’t get too much into detail about why exactly they went off the air I will say that Clear Channel & Entravision have a lot to do with it along with the way ratings are measured. Anyway, enough of the finger pointing, on to how to get Indie 103.1 back where it belongs, in our ears while on the go. Im not quite sure of other phones with mp3 streaming capabilities but if you have an iPhone read on.
First download and install an app called fStream from the AppStore. Once you got it installed open it up and go to “Favorites”, the following is what you will need to enter to get Indie 103.1 streaming.
Name: Indie 103.1
Bitrate (kbs): 128
Tap “Save” in the top right corner, and then “Play” in the bottom left corner. If your on WiFi you can go ahead and start listening right away by hitting the “Indie 103.1″ text. The station will begin buffering and you’ll begin to hear the stream in a second or two. If you happen to be out on a 3G (or *gulp* Edge) connection you’ll need to make one more step. Tap “More” on the bottom right and switch the “Cellular Network” to ON. You should then be able to listen to your stations while using the cellular network on the go. Hope this short blog post helps in getting you back to listening to Indie 103.1!
Note: There are other apps out there that can do this but I chose this one because it was (1) free and (2) easy. That’s all
