Awesome music, stalls sometimes

Awesome music. App seems to stall out sometimes for no reason; not sure what the issue is. Could be my phone but I don't think so.

Offline or it didn't happen ,

Two buttons and both crash my iPhone

Two buttons are all we are given. When I click on the WBRU button it plays the stream. Click on the other (“2.0”) button and the app crashes. Open the app again, click the 2.0 button, the stream plays Beyoncé. Not interested in that so I click on the first button again. Crash. Deleting the app.

BRU is back

Was so sad when they sold the radio channel. This is the next best thing. Easy to use 2 button app. Only has crashed when switching between the 2 feeds. Works perfectly otherwise!
