It's ok

There’s been improvements in the streaming quality. It only had trouble when I leave my WiFi and switch to data, but then adjusts and is ok. However, I’m noticing more and more that music is playing instead of the ads. Initially I thought that was great until I realized it was cutting into Free Beer and Hot Wings, the only reason why I’m listening to this station. Please fix!

Plays music when should be morning show

This is the most frustrating part of my day battling this awful app while trying to listen to the Free Beer and Hot Wings Morning Show. The app consistently comes out of commercial breaks into music instead of back to the morning show. The morning show is the only reason I personally use this app, but it is so unreliable that I am beginning to not want to listen to this show that I tune in for every single weekday morning.

I could switch to the Free Beer and Hot Wings app itself to listen, but the sound quality on that one is atrocious. The only good thing that this WGRD app going for it is the sound quality.

Would not recommend.

Not stable

I don’t know why they bash the radio pup app when this app’s stream quality isn't any better... I’m constantly having to restart the app to keep the stream going. No rhyme or reason... I’ve never listened to a full hour without messing with it. I love that I can stream it from the radio. Just please fix stream stability. I’m currently listening to more commercials re-starting the app than anything. (Conspiracy theory?? ((Kidding calm down))
