Slowly fading away

I listen to WBGO on my iPad or iPod. Recently the station stays connected for only five to ten minutes. I live in the Jazz limited state of North Carolina and had a break through when I discovered the great apps. Either technology has passed you by or for whatever reason, my pleasure is short lived. I hope this is just a glitch, but so far it's been about three months. If it can be fixed, kudos, if not kudos!

Somebody cares @ WBGO, this app is my go to now. I moved to South Carolina and the station gets better with time

Great new interface

Finally! It just plays when I click the app icon, no more looking for another button, no more deciding on the live broadcast or a (fantastic) program from the vault. Do poke around on the site, there is a whole universe of impeccable reporting, reviews and programming that keep this timeless music in rhythm with your heart. Thank you to the management for understanding that I just can’t wait to hear my BGO. Great improvement on the app of the greatest radio station in the world.

Love WBGO. Love Real JAZZ.

I’m a long-time listener & supporter. I’m also a songwriter and jazz musician. WBGO is the last of local jazz broadcasts in the NYC area. I used to listen to WBGO on radio, until we moved out of NYC to Long Island. Right on the edge of broadcast coverage. Getting a decent signal is hit or miss. So glad I found the app. I can listen to live broadcasts clearly, from anywhere! The app also has many of their shows on-demand.

If you like jazz, you need this app!
