Classic FM - all the thumbs up!

I used to listen to Classic FM 30 years ago when I was at university in the UK - it's wonderful to rediscover it in this across -the -pond mode, with all the various programs. Loved the recent hall of fame day devoted to film music and a fan of Jonathan Ross 's Sat PM program as well (though I have to set an alarm to remind me that "Saturday night at the movies" actually starts at 1 pm my time). Thanks for making this available via Global Player!

Perfect classical station

I found Classical FM in my early 20s as a missionary while staying in the UK. I’ve never quite found another station like it again much to my dismay. Finally after searching (and thanks to the great inter-webs) I’ve found I can stream it through this app. Thrilled isn’t even close to how happy I am! It’s truly a delight.

LBC review

I’ve been listening to LBC since 2014; and I love listening to the talk shows especially Nick Abbot; and Nick Ferrari! I like to listen to the LBC news broadcasts better than the American news broadcasts; and I’m a U.S citizen.

I’m still listening to LBC as of this year; and I’m definitely enjoying it!
