Love the content, not the function

Great content. NPR is my main source of news. This app can be quite finicky unfortunately. I frequently have to open and close several times to get the live stream to work. Also, recently there’s been a lot of “skipping” where words are getting cut out however I’ve noticed this when listening through Alexa as well. Keep up the great work NPR!

Simply a Gift!

I love WCMU. A wonderful blend of programming morning, noon and night. Your Internet stream sounds better than any other I know. It's like listening to honey. Beautiful fidelity and great dynamics. The web site is nicely organized and useful. I feel like this entire experience was created just for me. Bravo! I love living in Michigan and 'CMU is always a warm and soothing treat. Thank you one and all!

Would be great to be able to use Chromecast

Can be a little clunky sometimes but not being able to cast is a real drawback
